Cat’s Meow

2600 South 11th Street, 314-776-8617

Fake dive bars may come and go, but the Cat’s Meow lives forever. This wonderful Soulard dive offers cheap prices, truly stiff pours and an incomplete but vivid history of the neighborhood’s Mardi Gras festivities on its weathered walls. Put down that fancy craft brew and come see how the real drinkers pass the time. RFT photo.
