Spectator's Bar & Grill: Boulevard Brewing Company
Located next door to the Peppercorn Duck Club, I spent a small amount of time in Spectator's with a few of the guys while we were waiting for everyone to show up for whatever we had planned for the evening.
This is a typical sports bar with nicely spread out tables and big-screen TVs scattered here and there. While we stood at the bar nibbling on their bits & bites dishes, I decided to try some of the local draft Boulevard pale ale. It was quite good, so I later tried something a little darker - a bottle of their unfiltered Wheat beer. That was also very enjoyable.Related to:

Dukum Inn and Toons: Kirksville Nightlife
These two bars are located in Kirksville, MO, so they are also detailed on my Kirksville page. But in case you haven't seen them there, these are the great Thursday night bars in what we affectionately call "The Ville". So if you're a college student looking to go get slightly intoxicated and meet other students on a Thursday night, go to the Dukum Inn on the Square in Kirksville for $5 ALL-YOU-CAN-DRINK and then walk down the street to Toons, where you can go dance (small, but effective dance floor...pretty good for Kirksville!). Make sure you bring your ID!
The President Casino
Note: The President Casino closed in 2010 due to decreasing revenue resulting from competition from larger land-based casinos, as well as a flood that ruined much of the gambling complex.
The President Casino used to offer Las Vegas-style gambling on the banks of the Mississippi River. The casino featured over 1,200 slot machines, 385 video poker machines, keno, table games, and live poker in two land-based buildings and the S.S. Admiral, a permanently docked former riverboat.
The centerpiece of the President Casino was the S.S. Admiral, a legendary riverboat that had plied the waters of the Mississippi River since 1907. It originally served as a railroad barge, but was converted to passenger service in 1937. At that time, it was the largest inland waterway steamer in the world. It was bought by the President Casino in 1993 and converted to a permanently docked casino.
It remains to be seen what will happen to the S.S. Admiral now that the casino has closed. It is hoped that its historical importance will result in its being restored and used for other purposes.
There is no night life in the...
There is no night life in the entire state - with the possible exception of St. Louis. Kansas City closes up about 9:00. This is the mid-west, folks.
Dress Code: Anything goes. Jeans are ok practacilly any place - perhaps not at Tony's, the only 4 star restaurant in MO, which is in St. Louis and is basically Italian. Still, it is rather classy. And very expensive.

Pudge's Pug in Bethel,...
Pudge's Pug in Bethel, Missouri is my favorite night spot in the entire state of Missouri.
Pudge's Pub is just a small town tavern. Reason I like it so well is that Becky's uncle JV used to be a regular customer at Pudge's Pub. When JV died the folks at the pub insisted we come over. They fed us and gave us drinks and even gave Becky a free hat. We were treated like family there. If you are ever in Bethel stop in and tell them JV Latimer's niece sent you.
Dress Code: Casual.
blueberry hill: food, drinks and fun stuff to look at
great imaginative landmark restaurant, located on the delmar loop, with people from all ages, genders and walks of life...
the walls and ledges are packed with sports, music and pop culture memorabilia. you can play darts, video games, and of course drink beer. there are booths with tables that prove years of wear, and you can order some local dishes, one of which is toasted ravioli (the toasted part originated in st. louis, along with ice cream just for some trivia).
lively atmosphere, historical and local st. louis scene.
Dress Code: hamburger
delmar lounge: after hours bar
i would have classified this as eating and drinking, but i don't know if they serve food. it's just a good place to go after the other bars close, cause they stay open later. at this point, you would probably walk or cab home.
atomic cowboy: best bonfire and outdoor ambiance
this place actually is cool. it's a giant brick structure and on the inside, there is art on the walls, a u-shaped bar, a dancefloor, booth seating, and a kitchen that serves common food in an inventive way. the back area has a covered patio with plenty of seating, another bar, and an uncovered area with a huge bonfire that sits in a giant wok that is supported by 3 steel bars. you will see the trendy people of st. louis come out here, but it's not snooty or a "need to be seen" kind of place. peter, the owner, is a good guy.
Dress Code: casual
sasha's wine bar: non-pretentious wine bar
this non-obtrusive wine bar offers a great selection of wine, of course, but the best thing about it is how many wine boxes were used to cover every square inch of wall and ceiling in this place! there is often live music, a pleasant, friendly and talkative loyal clientele, a down to earth (and a little crazy) staff, and beautiful mosaic tables for intimate conversation.
Dress Code: wear what you want!
the royale: a used-to-be dive
good food, cheap canned beer, outdoor area with individual bonfires, friendly staff. it used to be divey enough to be the last bar on a pub crawl, but now, you may just start out there and stay for a while.
