Narwhal's Crafted
(3906 Laclede Avenue, 314-696-8388)
"These guys KILL the frozen drink game. Their drinks aren't a "gimmick," or packed with cheap liquor, they are well-thought out and crafted with the best ingredients. One of my favorites is the Hibiscus G&T, which has no added sugar! Soooooooo good. If you are a first timer, I recommend a flight! I still get them every time, because they are always adding new drinks to the menu." - Mary D. via Yelp

Taste Bar
(4584 Laclede Avenue, 314-361-1200)
"Taste frequently updates their drink offerings, which is awesome if you love trying new cocktails. Unfortunately, it's sad to see your favorite drinks disappear from the menu over time. My final verdict? Taste is the perfect destination for trying creative, unique and high-end cocktails. You won't find drinks like these anywhere else." - Mary D. via Yelp

Broadway Oyster Bar
(736 S. Broadway, 314-621-8811)
"They've got live music most nights of the week playing on a stage next to their outdoor patio, which is awesome. Unfortunately it was raining when we visited, so no tunes for us. Once seated at a hightop, we got a couple of cocktails (a Hurricane for me, a Broadway Blooze for her). At $8 each, they were fruity and fairly strong. Our waiter was super busy and there were some lapses in service, but nothing too worrisome." - Eric S. via Yelp

The Gramophone
(4243 Manchester Avenue, 314-531-5700)
"ProTip: if you like craft beers get the BREWLETTE. FOR 3$. It saves a couple buck but it is like roulette. You get something you don't know and neither does the Tender. It is usually an expensive craft beer that they are just moving to make room in the inventory. So they sell it at almost cost. Get what you want but if you like to explore and are up for adventure. This is a good time." - Justin S. via Yelp

Retreat Gastropub
(2 N. Sarah Street, 314-261-4497)
"A gastropub located on the edge of Central West End, I first came here when it opened and every year I find myself here several times because there is something for everyone. They have great drinks and great food choices. When it is nice outside in the summer, you can sit in the patio but inside is very spacious as well." - Erika L. via Yelp
