50 St. Louis Area Bars We Love


In our past bar guides, we’ve offered various guides to various bar genres: best craft breweries (2015), best dive bars (2016), best cocktail bars (2017) and best neighborhood bars (2018). That just about covers everything, so for this year’s guide, we decided to get a whole lot more subjective. Rather than choosing this genre or that, we decided simply to present 50 bars we love.
