    Barbarella
    For some, this place will always be the Jade Room (the awning out front even says so). It's no longer a dim neighborhood dive, the Jade Room got an uber-mod facelift in late 2009 and was renamed Barbarella, after the iconic 1968 film. The décor of incites nostalgia and wonder -- lava lamps mingle with the orange and blue geometric curves that span the walls, with designs by local artists Joseph Raglani and Jeremy Kannapell. The dim lighting and illuminating glow of nearby flat screen TVs plays well to the sci-fi aura of Barbarella. Test your inner nerd at Geek Trivia or indulge in science fiction films, including bar-favorite Dr. Who. After hours appetizers like crab rangoon and chicken curry are served until 2 a.m., thanks to the kitchen of the adjoining Mekong Restaurant.
    CBGB
    CBGB is South Grand’s favorite dive bar. For 25 years at its current location, CBGB has been serving up cheap booze in a punkish public house just barely preserved with local love. You can play darts or shuffleboard, check out some paintings by local artists or just hang out at the bar with some of St. Louis’ friendliest bartenders. Test your wits during trivia on Wednesdays and win yourself a drink or two. If the weather is fine, grab a tallboy and head out front or back to one of the two spacious patios. Or stay inside and warm up with the house shot, the Sandanista: tequila with Rose’s lime juice and sriracha. If there’s a blizzard and the city shuts down, put on your snowshoes and tramp down to CBGB. No plastic here. Bring cold hard cash for them and they'll have a cold beer for you.
    Lemon Grass
    Lemongrass has an attractive new home - check out the silhouettes of lemongrass stalks projected on the walls - but it remains one of the best values along South Grand. Its cafe sua da (iced coffee) is without doubt the strongest and sweetest. The lengthy menu offers the familiar (spring rolls and pho), the hearty (try com thit nuong dac biet, delicious char-grilled pork and an egg fried over-easy atop rice, with a quiche-like eggcake on the side) and even the Chinese (ga Tso's -- yes, General Tso's chicken). Best of all, you can get a generous portion of almost anything on the menu for less than $10.
