    Upstairs Lounge
    You won't find a sign advertising this popular South Grand institution. Nestled above Mekong on the corner of Grand Boulevard and Hartford Street, Upstairs is the go-to place for cheap drinks, dancing and local DJs spinning every night of the week. If sweating it out on the dance floor isn't your cup of tea, arrive early to snag a booth to people-watch; you won't be disappointed. If the scene upstairs gets stale, bounce down to uber-mod Barbarella, or the Blue Room, the two sister bars housed in the same building. The Upstairs draws a diverse crowd and is the unpretentious, South side alternative to the St. Louis club scene. There's generally a cover on the weekend, but if you're looking to party on the cheap, weeknights are your best bet.
    Urban Chestnut Grove Brewery & Bierhall
    Urban Chestnut has reinvented the classic German bierhall for its mammoth Grove Brewery. As a local craft-brewing institution, patrons come to the facility, first and foremost, for the beer, though the food gives the suds a run for their money. Chef Andrew Fair draws upon his German heritage and time living in Europe to create a menu of traditional German cuisine that has been updated so as not to be a caricature. Offerings consist of small plates, sandwiches and wurst boards with highlights such as salt cod brandade beignets, poutiness and dumplings of the moment. The indulgent “strammer max” sandwich is a must-try. Thinly shaved Black Forest ham, luscious Comté cheese and an over-easy farm egg are piled atop butter rye bread for a German version of a croque madame. Urban Chestnut features a selection of excellent G&W sausage served with rotating side dishes such as marrow beans and sauerkraut. It’s the ideal food for a day of drinking.
    Urban Chestnut Midtown Brewery & Biergarten
    Urban Chestnut Brewing Company’s original microbrewery in Midtown is a gem of a biergarten that serves up a delicious and rotating selection of beers. Brewmaster Florian Kuplent brings nearly two decades of beer-making experience and a novel brewing philosophy that results in two different lines of beer; Urban Chestnut’s “Reverence” series pays homage to the European brewing heritage with classic brewing techniques and styles, while “Revolution” employs more innovative, artisanal techniques to create contemporary American beers. So, whether you prefer the yeastiness of an old-school Bavarian lager like the Zwickel or a hopped-up monster of an ale like the STLIPA, Urban Chestnut’s got you covered. In addition to their excellent selection, Urban Chestnut offers a small food menu mostly composed of German biergarten staples like sausages, pretzel bread and mustard, as well as a small selection of both domestic and imported cheeses.
