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.
