Mandarin Lounge

Find the gangway between Scape and Design Within Reach (hint: hang a left at the Maryland Plaza fountain), greet the black-clad bouncer, and take the elevator to the third floor. You're instantly greeted by a phalanx of Chinese warriors, set back against dark red walls. Mandarin is an upscale nightclub with one of the best rooftop patios in St. Louis. DJs spin Top 40 tunes, while Central West Enders tipple and recline in one of the intimate, soft-lit corners. Don't miss the bathrooms, which are joined by a large stone sink (girls are often found peering into the boy's side and vice versa) and feature a sheet of water magically raining down from the mirror. Washing your hands was never more fun.

City Museum
    (750 N 16th Street, 314-231-2489)
    There's truly nothing like the City Museum. Yeah, it's the go-to spot for out-of-towners, but it earned that designation for a reason, so be a cool host and don't let your company miss out on the experience.
