What differentiates an Irish pub from just another bar? Some say the food, some say the beer and some say the decor. So what makes 100 West an Irish pub? Well, the owner is Irish, there are plenty of beers on tap, and there are a few clovers alongside the dart boards on the walls. Other than that, 100 West is just a standard, friendly neighborhood bar. The place's claim to fame are its liquor pitchers, which you can get for just $8 on Saturday nights. They're also experimenting with regular Saturday lingerie nights, which are exactly what they sound like: If ladies show up in lingerie, the liquor pitchers are free. Should ladies in their unmentionables fail to pull you in, they've got daily happy hour, friendly waitresses and free shuffleboard.
Located in Arnold, 21 Rock Bar and Grill is surrounded by thick forests, farmland, and not a whole lot else. 21 Rock has been around for thirteen years and includes a spacious stage and dance floor, six pool tables and the "best priced drinks in Jefferson County" within 3500 square feet. Although it used to be a rough biker bar, and still a stop on many bikers' run, regulars promise 21 Rock is safe and comfortable. (Just think of those big, tough bikers with hearts of gold and "MOM" tattooed prominently on their biceps.) In fact, 21 Rock was the top donor for the March of Dimes three years in a row and regularly participates in other charity events. Friday night is ladies (and gentlemen) night at 21 Rock, with $10 rail and drafts. They also have regular bucket specials -- and famous hot wings.
A central nighttime oases on Cherokee Street, this 20,000-square-foot behemoth features an ArtDimensions gallery on the second floor as just one element of its three stories full of neon lights and art. Hula hoopers, festive events and food trucks are no stranger to this popular weekend party pit. 2720 Cherokee brings in world-renowned DJs and dub steppers as well as a variety of reggaeton and miscellany to blast through a great big sound system, so expect to see ravers commingling with hipsters and hippies -- a truly utopian experience for the colorful club-hopper.
You might be the straightest Glenn Beck fan in St. Louis County with zero interest in the fabulous life, but you'd still be an idiot to write off Absolutli Goosed. This award-winning gay and lesbian lounge has one of the most expansive martini menus in the city, with names like Pussy Galore, Banana Hammock and Dixie Normous, as well as a laundry list of sips that won't make your grandma blush. Not sure what to order? Belly up to the smooth sea-green bar and ask for a recommendation. The obliging barkeep might even treat you to an off-menu drink like the Basil Smash: grapefruit vodka, lemon, simple syrup and muddled basil.
You don't get to eat a giant snail every day. Or, for that matter, yam porridge or fried plantains or palm juice. Unless, that is, you visit African Palace, one of the few local African restaurants that offers an alternative to Ethiopian cuisine. A thick sauce made from red bell peppers, onion, tomatoes, olive oil and lots of atarodo peppers is liberally employed in many of the dishes, from soups to gizzards to wings (and that giant snail). For an entrée, try the meat-and-rice-based jollof (prepared, like most of the main courses, with your choice of beef, chicken or fish), or the Daily Special (which is the same every day): a brightly flavored stew that unites dried cod, chicken and tripe with greens and that rich pepper sauce. Bonus: On weekends, African Palace becomes a nightclub, featuring reggae and world-beat music.
Formerly known as The Stable, this bar/restaurant a shrine to great beer. There are two dozen brews on tap, most of which you won't find on draft or in bottles at other area bars. The list of bottled brew is as extensive as a fine restaurant's wine list. The menu features food that is primarily beer-friendly: pizzas, sandwiches and shared appetizers. The pizzas are good, with a soft-but-still-chewy crust. Here, sandwiches are known as "grinders" and include several loose-meat selections. In the late evening, local cover bands and blues acts grace the club's small stage; they sound great reverberating off the lofty ceilings.
