Busch Stadium to Get Wrigley Field Experience: Nearby Rooftop Bar

The downtown hotel St. Louis Hilton at the Ballpark
announced this week its plans to add a rooftop bar atop its 20-story property. The bar -- expected to cost $7 million -- will offer views inside Busch Stadium and panoramic, 360-degree views of downtown St. Louis. The St. Louis Business Journal
has additional deets on the project, including architectural renderings.
One consideration though: The new plans for Ballpark Village -- calling for a 13-story building between Busch Stadium and the Hilton
would likely block the views of the baseball game from the hotel bar. But then, that's when -- if -- Ballpark Village becomes a reality.
Okay, so it's not exactly a four-story brownstone. And it's not located right across the street from the action, but hey, it's as close as we've got to Wrigleyville rooftops in St. Louis.
