A Soulard bar with more Irish heritage than French, Hammerstone's has a long, beautifully stocked bar with more spirit than a junior-varsity pep rally. Live music fills the room seven nights a week and twice daily on the weekends, and a comfortable outdoor patio allows the festivities to spill outside, even in the winter when the area is tented and heated. (Bonus: The patio is dog friendly.) Hammerstone's offers a large menu of bar-food standards, including burgers, quesadillas, wings and sandwiches. On the weekends, they'll even serve you breakfast.
