- 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.
