360 St. Louis

At nearly 400 feet above ground, just atop the Hilton St. Louis, you’ll be able to see every inch of downtown. In fact, you can take a bird’s eye peek right inside Busch Stadium—an awesome way to see a Cardinals game.

  • Nosh: The Lobster Roll features saltwater-poached lobster and pickled red onions with a tarragon aioli arugula slaw.


That historic downtown architecture is really something, isn’t it? In the name of consistency, SqWires restaurant has maintained the industrial charm of the former Western Wire factory in which it now sits.

Fully renovated, SqWires has the antique vibe of an old Victorian. Its handcrafted steel fireplace and leather banquette seating make for the perfect environment to reconnect with old friends.

  • Nosh: Vegetarian and gluten-free eaters will love the roasted vegetable curry, featuring button mushrooms, fennel, sweet potato, kale, and stewed lentils.

Tigin Irish Pub

  • Nosh: Their traditional Irish breakfast includes two eggs, sausages, rashers, black and white pudding, mushrooms, tomatoes, and Guinness cheddar bread.
