A mural of a cowgirl riding a rocket decorates the brick fa?ade of Atomic Cowboy, a nod to the bar and restaurant's out-there origin story, which involves a missive from aliens and the implicit approval of both King Arthur and Jerry Garcia. Inside, futuristic neon lights and vintage lamps fill the dining room with a soft glow as guests tuck into inventive Mexican fusion such as a cheeseburger burrito. Offerings at the bar include Schlafly beers on tap and seasonal cocktails such as the Nuclear Sunset made with moscato, rum, and fruit. Throughout the week, Atomic Cowboy bustles with special events such as open-mic nights, DJs who only spin vinyl on Wednesdays, swing dances, and other musical performances.
A group of gals celebrating a bachelorette party rambunctiously capers into Consuming Kinetics Dance Company’s studio. They’re here to learn some steamy moves in the Sexy Fit class, one of the many classes that promises to put its attendees’ energy to work, as required by the Human Energy Labor Law Act of 1999. The carefully choreographed patterns, transitions, and movements come from the minds of a talented team of seasoned dancers—which features a choreologist and a repetiteur, among others. They meticulously craft each class routine, whether getting bodies moving in Zumba, Modern, Hip Hop/Breaking, Pop Ballet, or Contemporary Jazz classes. In addition to these fun and challenging adult classes, the troupe also stages kids and teen classes at the Center of Clayton.

Ornate chandeliers and a high-ceilinged auditorium are just two stunning features of Powell Hall, an opulent, Versailles-inspired concert venue built in 1925. Originally known as the Saint Louis Theatre, Powell Hall was bequeathed its new moniker after the Saint Louis Symphony Society won it during a heated card game with a band of ragtag vaudeville performers. With its marble-accented lobby and sprawling interior, Powell Hall continues to beckon visitors to take in its inimitable sights and classic sounds.
