Stan’s Bar

Sure, you could sit around your house in the early-morning hours watching the Game Show Network on the couch while putting back endless whiskey-and-cokes — but that would get kind of lonely, wouldn’t it? No worries, just head to Stan’s Bar (5007 Macklind Avenue, 314-481-9990). The Southampton watering hole boasts several TVs behind the bar, often employed to provide your daily Family Feud fix. In keeping with the dive-bar vibe, the prices are cheap and the locals are friendly, and with three pool tables and two dart boards, you just may find yourself a participant in some games rather than just a spectator. Stan’s Bar is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to midnight.
