In 1999, Jimbo Sinovic opened the first Big Daddy's on the Landing and Soulard in the historic Soulard district, less than a half-mile from the iconic Anheuser-Busch Brewery. The eatery's drink specials and tasty pub staples—served for lunch, dinner, and late-night owl watching—established the bar as a neighborhood favorite and inspired its owner to declare it "The Best Bar in the Whole Wide World."
With panoramic views of downtown and the St. Louis Gateway Arch looming in the background like a giant croquet wicket, baseball enthusiasts and Cardinals fans can visit sites they don't normally see on game day. During the tour, fans will swing through the Redbird Club—a spacious, closed-in section of the ballpark with some of the best views available—as well as the press box, where the world first learned that Mark McGwire's goatee was actually a toupee. Visitors get to check out other notable spots in the stadium, including the Cardinals dugout, Trinket City, and the secret fifth base. While tours are usually available daily, visitors are strongly encouraged to call ahead.
The classic American sports-bar vibe effused by Market Pub House’s memorabilia-covered walls and overhead TVs belies the eatery’s diverse spread of multinational pub fare. Like a cozy bathrobe woven from dark matter, the menu combines the comfortable and familiar with the exotic, dishing out traditional deli staples and hot wings along with tangy greek salads, crusty banh mis, and Latin- and Asian-infused appetizers. Eighteen frosty beers on tap lubricate game-day viewing across multiple flat-screen TVs as well as weekly karaoke and trivia, and an ample outdoor patio hosts guests at more than a dozen wrought-iron tables.
Nancy Novak used to throw house parties for women's rugby and flag-football teams, providing an avenue for celebratory mingling after games. When she opened Novak's Bar & Grill in 1996, those parties found a new home. Music thunders over a dance floor, karaoke singers croon, and crowds flock to a marble bar for cocktails and beer. There's even a horseshoe toss and an outdoor stage for drag performances and bands. Cooks prepare a menu of burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas to keep energy levels high.
