    Nik's Wine Bar & Hookah Lounge

    by imjustsaying Updated Aug 3, 2004

    A great place for Martinis and wine, a light dinner, flavored hookahs and people watching and live music. I was there mid-weeek in the summer and it was quite busy outdoors. We had great service and a great evening. Here's an accurate online review that I found (I need not say more)

    Dress Code: Hip Crowd. Quite Casual.

    The Pageant: The Big Rock Club

    by ymike2000 Written Sep 28, 2004

    The band I work with usually plays theatres, and we don't get to the big rock clubs very often. The Pageant was a real treat because the sound system was awesome because and Bob the lighting guy really got into his work, giving them a cool backdrop to the performance.

    Check my travelogues for inside pictures.

    Dress Code: Whatever.

    Mississippi Nights: Live Music on the River

    by ymike2000 Written Sep 28, 2004

    Right on the banks of the Mississippi River is Mississippi Nights. At a capacity of 1,000 It's smaller than The Pageant. Check the website for upcoming events. Most shows are all ages, so there's a raised area in the back for the bar.

    Dress Code: Whatever.

    Mangia Italiano: Budget Bars

    by redherring Written Dec 13, 2004

    Its kind of a nice place to do lunch, maybe dinner, the food is pretty good I guess. The real draw would be its the late night spot for local hipsters, too-cool-for-schoolers, scenesters, and mild alchoholics--most of which live in the area or want to once they move out of their parents house...which is considered a very cool area to live in (slightly impoverished) if young-ish and hip, naturally and effortlessly alternative and/or too-cool-for-school. Great people watching, theres a hideous mural in the women's bathroom featuring a richard simmons look alike in some sort of hellenic sacrificial scene, and an owl who casts an ominous shadow on the wall from time to time. $1 Stag, $2.50 for PBR...full bar, including wine apparently. often Live music some days, DJs others.... The tables and chairs are cool--like sitting in your grandmas kitchen. If its not charmingly dive enough for you (though they seem to try to be classing-up the image of it on the website) just down the block to the left is CBGB's which makes it look downright preppy on the seedy scale. Be careful in this area at night, dont let the ladies walk alone please. And if too drunk to drive, South City diner is just to the right and is recently renovated....

    Dress Code: no dress code, except badittude.

    Bars and Stones

    There are numerous bar's, club's, and entertainment things at Laclede's Landing, near the Arch, by the water and near a stop of the light rail. Many of the places are bar chains (Fat Tuesday's, Moose Mc...). The neighborhood is very interesting with brick buildings, gas lights and cobblestone streets.

    Dress Code: Varies.

    Harrys (on Southwest): Burger Mania!

    by Sunshine64 Written Nov 30, 2002

    There are 2 establishments named "Harry's" in St. Louis. This one is affectionately know as "Harry's on Southwest" (Southwest is the name of the street). The other Harry's is downtown, and is much more fancy.

    Harry's on Southwest is a pub with good pub food and good drink prices. In the summer they have a nice patio for some outdoor drinking.

    Wednesday night is Burger Mania and Harry's serves huge burgers for $2.99!

    Dress Code: Whatever you want. I have been here in jeans and a sweatshirt, and dressed up after a wedding. Most people are dressed casually.

    John's Town Hall: A Secret Drinking Spot

    by Sunshine64 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    John's Town Hall is similar to a pub. It's not loud and crazy like a nightclub, and it has both a bar and restaurant section. It's on the street level of the Dorchester Hotel - which really isn't a Hotel at all - at least these days - it's a high-rise condo overlooking Forest Park.

    They server decent beer on tap as well as mixed drinks.

    The jukebox is awesome. Mostly classic rock from the 60's - 90's, old standards like Frank Sinatra, plus fun stuff like Squeeze.

    Dress Code: Come as you are. Jeans, suit, whatever. You will see it all.

    Soulard area: great blues bars in a walkable neighborhood

    by johnandlynclarke Updated Jan 18, 2004

    On the weekends there are a dozen bars with live music and enthusiastic crowds. The Soulard Blues Band plays at several of the local bars. Once you park in the area, just wander until you hear the music. Some places have cover charges, others not. Park any where around Soulard Maket, 7th and Lafayette Streets and wander.

    Dress Code: the entire area is casual.

  • The Saints roller rink has...

    by jjsmoot Written Aug 24, 2002

    The Saints roller rink has Gospel Skate from 11:30 pm to 2:30 am on Friday nights.
    If you like to skate, it's really a great time. The music is great and they even stop and pray a few times during the night.

    Dress Code: Wear some comfortable jeans or what ever you normally skate in.

    This seems to be a reoccuring theme for my trips...I have this tendancy to make an appearance at every one of them that is in the city I am visiting. This long and somewhat narrow bar gets really packs a crowd and hence, the reason girls start climbing on the bar to dance...well, that and probably to draw attention to themselves! But they play great dance music and you can always expect to see a good crowd.

    Dress Code: Dress smartly

    McGurk's: Best Irish Pub in town - well maybe the only one

    by Sunshine64 Written Oct 19, 2002

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    McGurk's has live Irish music, and the musicians are usually imported from Ireland. It is a great place to have a fun, sing-along time. And they pour a decent Guinness.

    Dress Code: Anything
