As the Gateway to the West, St. Louis is a sentinel city with an eclectic swirl of dining options to dazzle every culinary sensibility.
Feast Your Senses in St. Louis
Catch an eyeful of the city from rooftop bar and restaurant Three Sixty, taking in a bird’s-eye view of the world-famous arch and Busch Stadium. Bring things closer to home with the Post, a down-to-earth sports bar and grill that serves up a stellar selection of burgers and more screens than a multiplex.
The food truck scene in the Lou crackles with diversity; Buzz’s Hawaiian Grill offers a full range of Pacific Islander favorites, while Pappy’s Rolling Smoke, a classic St. Louis BBQ joint on wheels, sizzles with local spirit.
Cosmic-themed Eclipse restaurant above the penthouse of the aptly named Moonrise Hotel showcases classic and craft cocktails and out-of-this-world American fare. Maggie O’Brien’s is an unfussy, traditional Irish pub with buckets of beer and colossal bar bites to satisfy the hungriest of customers.
An Appetite for Night Life
When the night life calls, plan an evening of escapades at Juniper, with its impeccable cocktails and urbane menu providing an upscale setting with a casual vibe. Fans of funky spaces can head to Sophie’s Artist Lounge, a multi-hued cocktail lounge with a gallery of street art and nightly DJs for vibrant evenings out. Or check into Blood and Sand, a members-only cocktail bar that hearkens back to the days of the speakeasy.
Robust bills itself as St. Louis’s premier wine bar, though their menu of clean juice drinks and tapas selections indicate they’re much more. And save room for Bailey’s Chocolate Bar, a wine-and-dessert café where romance is the secret ingredient, no matter what you order.
It’s no overstatement to say that if your appetite calls for unique experiences in St. Louis, you’ll find what you’re craving in every bite.
