The new home of Dooley's
- Downtown institution Dooley's Ltd.
closed in 2008. Now, the St. Louis Business Journal reports
that Sean Dooley
, son of founder Alex Dooley, plans to open Dooley's Pub and Brew Haus
at 601 North Grand Boulevard. (The address was previously home to the short-lived Wm. Shakespeare's Gastropub.) Dooley is partnering with the Lawrence Group, which has developed several other Grand Center restaurants in recent years, including Triumph Grill
and Kota Wood Fire Grill
- Highlands Brewing Company (105 East Jefferson Avenue, 314-966-2739)
has a new name: Kirkwood Station Brewing Co.
The brewpub's former name caused legal trouble
with a North Carolina brewery, Kirkwood Patch reported. This isn't the first change of name for the Kirkwood business. It opened in 2006 as Wm. D. Alandale Brewing Co.
, a name that was an amalgam of the names of its original owners.
