Drinks & Nightlife
Great live music venue for both traveling and local bands. Good sound, intimate setting, really close to the little Missouri Ave house. OB draws some of the largest acts in the area.

On the list of favorite local beers and breweries. We love everything UB offers, but visit this location and you can taste before ordering. Plus the food is very tasty (if not at all healthy) and is casual enough for a family or group setting that includes kids.

Neighborhood bar serving a huge assortment of delicious whiskeys- all within walking distance of the little house. Casual, fun vibes, popular to the neighborhood, and they hire decent bartenders. Worth a visit!

Perfect place to taste local beers and/or pick something up to bring back to the house. Super friendly local owners. The ultra cool counters and display shelving were designed and built by a neighborhood woodworking superstar.

Entertainment & Activities
This is the MUST SEE/DO place to visit in the Lou. An entire downtown city block renovated/sculpted by local artist Bob Cassily into an artistic indoor/outdoor playground. Get ready to be physical and inspired all at the same time.

Shopping
Top secret warehouse full of St Louis architectural artifacts. PLUS it's housed in the Lemp Brewery (entrance at Lemp between Cherokee and Broadway). Only open on Saturdays, and run by a very special human named Regan. Access to the incredible (and long defunct) Lemp brewery is more than enough to make a visit worthwhile if you're into old buildings and foraging for dusty architectural treasures.

Truly beautiful little nursery with unusual plants, pots, flowers and gifts. There's a full yard for gardeners in the spring and summer months, Christmas trees in the holiday season, and truly special indoor plants and succulents all year round.

The poster of St Louis neighborhoods which is hanging in the little house was designed and printed by these shopkeepers. Everything here is locally produced and celebrates St Louis in a creative (rather than touristy) way. Silkscreened T-shirts, cards and posters. Custom projects also are an option.

Weird and fun collection of antiques, old signage, random vintage finds... Great spot for poking around, or catching locals chatting it up with the shopkeeper.

Excellent place for ramen, small plates, and great cocktails. Swanky design with hipster vibe. It's our 'go to' walkable spot for an intimate celebratory meal or toast. We just found that they also have Sunday brunch but haven't yet tried.

Truly delicious small plates and cocktails in a part of town which has a distinctly European flare. Park far away, and walk if the weather is good, and you'll see some of the most charming shops and incredible houses in the city. Plus they have cafe style seating in nice weather.

Can't say enough about this Louisiana inspired menu and fare! This is coming from a girl born in New Orleans. The shrimp and grits is out of this world. Also, upstairs is 'The Chocolate Bar'- a dessert cocktail spot for after your meal. Mildly pricey but worth every penny.

Loud music, funky dark vibe, great pizza for eat in or take out. Every 'meat' option in the place is actually meatless, so vegetarians can go crazy. Good New York style slices, and even our most carnivorous friends love the 'sausage' pizza.

This is a special spot because A- the delicious food offerings change daily and are all cooked from scratch B- the prices are insanely inexpensive for top notch goodness in large quantities and C- the experience of dining here is like eating in your best friend's very comfortable living room. This is a 5 star insider's tip for lunch located in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood, so take your iPad in with you.

This is the best portobellos burger I've ever had. All meats on the other burgers are carefully sourced, and the shakes and fries are amazing. Plan to wait in line, but worth the effort if you're looking for a back to basics kind of lunch.

Beautiful collection in historic building located on one of the loveliest spots overlooking the water in Forest Park (known as Art Hill). Dedicate some time for both the museum and the park and you'll have a perfect St Louis day.

I don't even play chess and I love the chess museum. They have genuinely world class, highly curated exhibits in all sorts of interesting, mildly chess related topics. I even saw a great fashion exhibit there. Gift shop is excellent.
