Here in landlocked Missouri, it's not every day that we get an island getaway. But if you can fill the void of a tropical paradise with its accoutrements -- surf boards, pirate flags, anchors and a life-sized Captain Morgan statue -- then Island Bar is right for you. A small but friendly heavily-themed bar in Ballwin just off Manchester Road, Island Bar has karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights, plus a Wii console, which they used to use for free bowling tournaments. There hasn't been a tournament in a few years, but customers are welcome to play solo anytime for free. Nicotine users rejoice: Because Island Bar only serves pizza to eat, they plan to remain a smoking bar even after the city of St. Louis enforces its smoke free ordinance after the new year.
