Nick's Irish Pub (6001 Manchester Avenue; 314-781-7806) St. Louis might have more Irish pubs than there are shamrocks in a glen, but many of them are not open after 1:30 a.m. That's what separates Nick's from the rest. It's a pub the way pubs are meant to be: cheap beer, cheap bar food and plenty of drunken fools banging mugs on the table to the beat of local musicians playing traditional Irish tunes late at night.

O'Connells Pub (4652 Shaw Avenue; 314-773-6600) Open since 1962, O'Connell's is known for making a mean burger. It's housed in an Anheuser-Busch building built in 1905, and like the building and the whiskey, the furniture and decorations are well-aged. The beer selection is minimal, and the evening crowd is rowdy as a bunch of sailors. But the burgers are heavenly, and the Jameson shots are ginormous. What more could you ask for?
