World Series Game Seven: The Five Best Places To Watch The Cardinals In St. Louis

Oct 28, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Well sports fans, it's the day you've all been waiting for. The St. Louis Squirrels will face the Texas Trash 'Staches one final time on this most hallowed day of baseballing, Game Seven.

5. Friendly's: There's no point in going broke just for a baseball game, and at Friendly's, that's barely an option. Whiskey diet, and keep 'em comin'? That'll be $2. The covered outdoor bar serves up $1.50 hot dogs and cheeseburgers during game time, and unlike downtown, this Tower Grove South gem is too out of the way for Rangers fans. But bring cash.

4. Over/Under Bar: This downtown watering hole offers an upscale viewing experience, 37 flatscreens, and a pretty patio for smoking those stress cigarettes.

3. Lester's Sports Bar: With approximately 8 million flatscreens, there's absolutely no chance you will miss a single second of the game at this brand new Central West End joint. If you show up between 3 and 6 p.m. (and seriously, we demand it -- no one is going to be "working" this afternoon), you can take advantage of the $14 buckets and $6 appetizers.

2. The Post Sports Bar and Grill: Skip the traffic and the hassle and head to this clean, friendly sports bar nestled in the heart of Maplewood on the Manchester strip. If the game goes into double digit innings, you can down all the $3 Jager bombs or $2.50 domestics your li'l tummy can handle, because their late night special starts at 9 p.m.

1. 360 St. Louis: We're traffic averse and generally crabby, so wading through the red-clad mass of humanity downtown on game night is not usually our bottle of Budweiser. But it's the motherplucking World Series, kittens! Why not enjoy it with a bird's eye view to the action, at one of the plushest nightspots in the whole Metro area? 360 is swank as all get out, but the view of the stadium is unparalleled, and it's a whole lot cheaper than shelling out $300 for standing room.
