View Full Version : Those asking about things to do

I had my own questions about what to do in St Louis. Now I know there are plenty out there who live in the area can tell us where the cool places to go- but I got a nice alternative list from a friend who is into the nightlife in St Louis and figured I'd post what he had to say about it(ignore all references to other places, he was comparing it to Richmond for me):

Also, are you staying at the Renaissance near the airport or on Washington Ave (Downtown). That makes a big difference. If you are staying downtown, then there are plenty of decent places to hang out. Your hotel would be close to a number of things. You have Washington Ave. which has irish bars (Dubliner), a sports bar (Flannerys), an upscale bowling alley (Flamingo Bowl - bowling is big in St. Louis), an 80's club with pool tables (Rue 13), an upscale club (Allure), a dive bar (Hair of the Dog)... basically something for everyone. Then, nearby you have Lacledes Landing and the Lumiere Casino. Lacledes Landing is kind of the Shockoe Bottom of St. Louis (theme bars), but it can get a little thuggish. The Casino is pretty good and it stays open until 5am, if you are late night kind of person or if you like to gamble. Nearby you also have a neighborhood called Soulard, which is like the Fan or Church Hill. There are neighborhood bars on a lot of corners (McGurks, Llewellyns, are a couple that come to mind). If you are up for driving a little, then you have thesor U-City loop which has good nightlife and a few music venues. You also have the Central West End, which is kind of like Carytown. Don't forget to go up in the arch and take a tour of the Budweiser Brewery which is right downtown. Another thing to note is that some neighborhoods have bars open until 1:30 (Soulard) and some are open until 3:00 (Downtown - Washington Ave). Let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you guys have fun.

An bowling open till 3am?- sounds classy to me :D

Since there may not be the trip to Pointer's Pizza, you wanna hit up some late night bowling?

Dude- totally. I'm up for a what- friday night game? You gonna be at the Ren?

"That's a great plan, Walter. That's fuckin' ingenious, if I understand it correctly. It's a Swiss fuckin' watch."

"Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling."

OK. Sounds good to me. I'd have to see what time I get back from the Columbia Tour. I can go out there early and try not to stay too long.
