2733 Sutton Boulevard St. Louis, MO 63143 +1 314 646 0370
A very neighborhood diner, Deluxe is where the locals gather when tummy rumbles. A pleasant little place, the ambiance here is very casual, the interiors too are simple, minimalistic and homely. Though serving the regular fare on menu, there is nothing regular about the food, for it is simple and nourishing. The drinks are decent, just the ones that seem great to gulp down. However the icing on the cake is their live music events, where, local and upcoming bands are featured who dramatize the evenings like no other.

Home of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra since 1966, Powell Symphony Hall began life in the 1920s as a vaudeville hall and movie palace.

The entry area was designed to emulate the Louis XIV Chapel at Versailles and includes a spectacular stained glass window of St. Louis on a horse.

Laclede Street Bar & Grill is famous among the local college students, being right across from Saint Louis University. As a campus bar, Laclede's (as it's been nicknamed) is a great place to go to get away from the school cafeterias and enjoy the night life without having to drive or venture far from campus. Starting Wednesday night and into Saturday, the place is popping with 20-somethings and a DJ who knows how to get the party started. Everyone's carded at the door, and the fun is only for the 21+ crowd. Locals in the neighborhood frequent Laclede's for their happy hour menu and lunch specials. The food is pretty typical. Naturally, there's the burgers, fries and chicken wings, but "Billiken Specials" include steak and homemade lasagna. -Cathryn D. Blue

101 South Hanley Road Clayton, MO 63105 +1 314 725 4700
The attraction of this Clayton restaurant is not so much the food as the popular bar, which is a busy meeting spot with singles. Of the entrees on the menu, the baby back ribs are a bestseller. The thin crust pizza with mozzarella and provolone cheeses is also a favorite. Oddly, you will need to ask for the separate appetizer menu to see the majority of the appetizers. The onion rings are nice and crispy and definitely worth a mention.
