Joining Baileys’ Chocolate Bar, Rooster and the Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar, Baileys’ Range is Dave Bailey’s most ambitious venture to date: He seeks to provide luxe-quality burgers in quantities usually associated with Five Guys or Smashburger. Made from locally sourced, grass-fed beef, the burgers are excellent, whether you order yours unadorned, with cheese or classed up with sautéed mushrooms and Taleggio or meated up with pulled pork. Patties made from lamb, bison, duck, chicken and vegetables are also available. The fries are topnotch, the shakes blended with super-creamy housemade ice cream.
Restaurateur Dave Bailey's The Bridge offers a terrific casual-dining experience in a stylish downtown space. The two-story upscale hideaway in downtown St. Louis celebrates artisanal beers and wines and craft cocktails. Artsy lighting and a sumptuous wooden bar create a classically beautiful atmosphere you won’t soon want to leave. The menu intensely focuses on creative small plates, snacks, charcuterie and cheese, sandwiches, salads and small entrees. The decor, especially the giant bird's-nest light fixtures, is, frankly, awesome.
A true taste of N'awlins awaits you at this party-time Cajun/Creole dive, housed in a 150-year-old historic building in the shadows of Busch Stadium and downtown. Order up a mess of crawfish, fried alligator, jambalaya or gumbo (the house recipe, known as Gumbo Ya Ya, is mixed with shrimp, chicken and andouille sausage), or go for one of the five grinders or five varieties of oysters on the half-shell. The Big Easy ain't just found in the flavors, though: Broadway Oyster Bar is also a great place to see national jazz, blues and zydeco acts seven days a week. Nowhere else in town can you eat gator meat and oysters and hear live music. The regulars know it, and they pack the bar so full it makes you wonder if N'awlins natives aren't coming up here for a slice o' blues, St. Louis-style. Laissez le bon temps rouler, indeed.
It's our brand-spankin' new stadium, and we couldn't be more excited. Home of the National League's finest, the St. Louis Cardinals, Busch Stadium is ground zero for Redbirds fans. Tours are available (call for details), and while the building is too new to have much history, it's just a matter of time.
Every town needs a literal stomping ground for kids of all ages to play, and Citygarden in downtown St. Louis provides just the right ratio of form-to-fun with its beautiful sculptures and climbable features. Citygarden has a many personalities including a picture-perfect destination for families to bask in on a summer day (bring swimming trunks so the tykes can splash around in the fountains) to a contemplative, lit-up scene for visitors to enjoy by night. With the Arch in the distance and groomed plants to offset the urban landscape, Citygarden serves as a fine destination for both locals and tourists alike.
Copia beat the odds, reopening two and a half years after a fire gutted the stylish and popular Washington Avenue restaurant. The look and the menu didn't change much in the hiatus. The space is outsize, with a spacious main dining room and an even bigger "wine garden" (with a retractable roof!). The menu caters to the tastes of St. Louis diners before the economy collapsed. Standout dishes include the smoked spare ribs and duck breast in a sauce of its own pan juices with candied dates and green peppercorns. If a dish sounds too 1990s-early 2000s-ish to be good - like, say, tuna with wasabi-infused mashed potatoes - trust your gut.
At The Crack Fox, visitors can feel free to let their freak flag fly or simply play the role of a leisurely standby. All are welcome at this eclectic downtown dive -- just don't be surprised to see anything from burlesque and drag performances one night to bondage and gotchic industrial garb the next. EDM spins, karaoke, open mics, metal shows and more also make up the list of participatory alternative entertainment offered here, and there's a huge selection of beer and handcrafted cocktails to wash it all down with. Take, for instance, the "ginger snap" made with ginger vodka, cinnamon Schnapps and lemonade. Come in to pick your poison and meet the cast of friendly fun-loving regulars, and don't forget to bring an open mind.
During the frigid winter months, this 20,000-seat arena is the Blues' home sweet home. But every now and again, the ice makes way for monumental showstoppers with jaw-dropping stage set-ups (think Springsteen, Lady Gaga or Nine Inch Nails, and yes, even The Bieber). Concertgoers looking for the VIP experience can rack up seats in 91 suites, 1,700 club seats and seven party rooms.
The Texas-based chain Flying Saucer Draught Emporium has opened its first St. Louis location a mere pop fly away from Busch Stadium. As the name suggests, the beer selection is the primary draw: 80 craft brews on tap, another 150 in bottles. You will find big names from the craft-beer world, but St Louis’ booming scene is well represented among the selections. The food is standard-issue bar grub: burgers, sandwiches, wings, pizza. The appetizers are the most reliable pleasure, especially the oversize soft pretzels. Several dishes featuring bratwurst are the best bets for your full meal.
