WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS OR ANY CALL AHEAD SEATING.
WE OPERATE ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS.
WE HAVE VERY LIMITED SEATING OPTIONS FOR GROUPS LARGER THAN SIX PEOPLE.
Our beverage program, led by Tim Wiggins, is a seasonally rotating menu of spirit-forward cocktails, craft beer, as well as wine.
The bar showcases primarily aged spirits in a cocktail menu featuring both classic cocktails, and our own original takes. Our cocktails are made with fresh quality products, many of which are made in house such as our shrubs, syrups, and tinctures.
We feature primarily local breweries on our ten rotating taps, with some out of town guests primarily showcasing sours or barrel-aged options. We have a selection of nearly 50 craft cans and bottles (including sours) from across the country. We also have several large-format beers for sharing.
We cook simple, but elegant, food bringing regional produce and fresh ideas to recognizable pub fare. Our kitchen, led by Chef Michael Friedman, takes a modern approach to pub food featuring many hot and cold small plates, burgers, flatbreads, and entrees. More than half our dining menu is vegetarian-friendly. Most vegetarian options are also available vegan. Only a few items cannot be made gluten-free.
Guests should feel comfortable coming in for a quick lunch, a couple of drinks, or a 4-course meal. Our mission is to provide guests with a memorable meal and a full-service experience.
We source as many products as we can locally, or from locally based suppliers.
We serve brunch on both Saturdays and Sundays.
Our vibe is comfortable and casual. Modern, yet rustic. The reclaimed wood and concrete bar is the centerpiece once inside. The concrete was poured on site and stained once dryed. The wood was all reclaimed from sites here in St. Louis.
Cedar tables and benches were Missouri-sourced, custom-designed, and hand-built for seating around the bar. Gas lanterns are re-purposed into light fixtures hanging throughout. Those combined with outdoor string lighting, brings the outdoors in.
Our 'patio' is a screened in sunroom that can both protect from the elements, and provide open air. We also have sidewalk seating as well.
