    Best Club to Close in the Past 12 Months - Galaxy

    All right, the closing of the Galaxy wasn't really all that bad -- more of a mercy killing, really, after it limped and staggered through the last year. But don't remember the Galaxy as a Clear Channel outlet with a poor sound system and a stage faci...

    Best Bouncer - Barry Currie The Pageant

    This is the way Barry Currie does it at the Pageant, where he is a doorman and bouncer: Spotting trouble, be it a malcontent or miscreant, he puts on his best face and assumes a calm disposition, one that comes very naturally to him. He's like that h...

    Best Place to Play Darts - Screamers

    From the outside, this south-side pub could be the city's ugliest bar. It takes more than a little gall to paint the name of your business in lemon yellow on cheap-looking bright-blue siding. It's like something from a bad acid trip. But ignore the g...

    Best Punk-Rock Venue - Creepy Crawl

    Most of us have the good sense to not eat near the toilet. Unsanitary! Smoking cigarettes near gas pumps is a bad idea. Unsafe! How about letting a thousand or so hardcore bands play in your living room every day of the year? Unthinkable. There's a t...

    Best Place to Play Pinball - CBGB

    From the multi-machine majesty of Dave and Buster's to the simplicity of the corner coffee shop, there are many places in St. Louis to play pinball. So what makes CBGB, a smallish bar with one lone machine, the best place to play? One word: atmospher...

    Best Karaoke - Llywelyn's Pub

    Though there are no reported renderings of the Cheers theme song at this weekly Wednesday night warblefest, the atmosphere at Llywelyn's upstairs-bar karaoke is one in which everybody knows your name -- even if the regulars are so consistently tipsy,...

    Best Dance Club - Velvet

    When it's the freakin' weekend, baby, and you're maneuvering down the sapphire runway that is Washington Avenue toward the matching blue Knickerbocker sign, stop at Velvet to get your dance on. After the valet and the nominal admission price, clubgoe...

    Best Club DJ - Astroboy

    The man knows more about techno and house than you do by a long shot, and mixes the two with a deftness that comes with spinning records for the better part of a decade. Andy Ford, a.k.a. Astroboy, has a collection to die for, it's true, and this pas...

    Best New Bar - Mangia Italiano

    "Oh man!" went the refrain from far and wide earlier this year, "Mangia got a 3 a.m. license? Now I'll never leave!" Long a regular stop on any self-respecting hipster's nightly rounds, Mangia Italiano, by the look of things, already had it all (Ther...

    Best Neighborhood Bar (Downtown) - Dapper Dan's

    The hipper sect of downtown boosters would likely argue that the surest indicator that the urban core is back will be the ongoing success of Washington Avenue hot spots like Tangerine. Tangerine's great. But the day Dapper Dan's boasts a fanny on eve...

    Best Open-Mic Night - Hootenanny

    It was winter of '98 when the tireless crew at Frederick's Music Lounge started enduring St. Louis' endless supply of live sonic gold every Thursday night, serving up the Stag to obliterate the inhibitions of the timid and providing a refuge for the ...

    Best Lesbian Bar - Novak's Bar & Grill

    Novak's Bar & Grill serves up cold beer, burgers and barmaids who double as dancers. Led by Becca, two nights a week the ladies shimmy, shake and hang from leather straps on the ceiling, and customers with a buck can steal a quick kiss. But it isn't ...

    Best Gay Bar - The Bastille

    Weary of oiling up his Rollerblades and flexing his pecs, Gaylord von Gayenstein, River City man's man about town, just needs a cold beer and a big ol' Reuben sandwich. But where to go amid a gay-bar landscape dominated by drum and bass? Easy: The Ba...

    Best Gay Bar to Die in the Past Year - The Drake Bar

    The stereotypical gay bar is defined, accurately or otherwise, by pulsating techno rhythms, frosted follicles and buff, shaved pectorals -- which is exactly what made a place like the Drake Bar such a barrier-breaking breath of fresh air. A piano bar...

    Best Neighborhood Bar (West) - Kremer's Tavern

    For no apparent reason, the guy drinking by himself decided he was going to buy a round for the dozen or so patrons in the place. We wondered: Why the generosity? "Why not?" the fellow responded. Of course, we attributed his good humor and our good f...

    Best Underground Club - Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center

    Best Jazz or Blues Club - BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups

    The nineteenth-century building that houses BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups had been a private home, boarding house, reception hall, millinery, transient hotel, bar, diner and house of ill repute before Mark O'Shaughnessy turned it into a blues and jazz clu...

    Best Neighborhood Bar (South) - Venice Caf

    The Anheuser-Busch brewery is one minute away and worlds apart from the Venice Caf, surely the most colorful bar in St. Louis. Don't expect the A-B posters and neon beer signs that are ubiquitous at most of this town's corner bars. Decorated with bo...

    Best Biker Bar - Woodstock Lounge

    She was sitting at the end of the bar, looking drunk, forlorn and blond (although the lights were so dim her hair hue was a matter of interpretation). It was an hour before closing, time enough for a few Bud longnecks and Rumplemintz shots before str...

    Best Place to Drown Your Sorrows - Ardie and Tiny's

    Ardie and Tiny's, a brown-cabin bar on Collinsville Road, bears the double-edged distinction of being closest in proximity to the area horse track, Fairmount Park, thus guaranteeing a human circus inside the bar every race night. On weekends Ardie an...
