Central West End Cocktail Party

Courtesy CWE Scene
St. Louisans like a drink, that's no secret. Our shared fondness for the hard stuff led Mrs. Julius C. Walsh Jr. to devise and host the first-ever cocktail party at her Central West End home in 1917. Despite her relative anonymity, the neighborhood continues to honor her spirit and her love of the spirits with the Central West End Cocktail Party — and you're invited to attend. From 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 9, on Euclid Avenue between Maryland and McPherson (, there will be a cocktail competition, as well as live music by Miss Jubilee, Grass Fed Mule and other local bands. Neighborhood bars and restaurants will be selling celebratory drinks and food to ensure it's a real party. Admission is free.
