SAINT LOUIS CLUB: The BEST part of your day.

Creative, year-round, Club-sponsored events offer members a reliable, remarkable, enjoyable “third place,” after home and work – a place to bring family and friends to celebrate every season – a place to learn and to laugh – a place to make lifelong friends and memories to last a lifetime.

  • New Year’s Eve Celebrations

      Clink a glass of bubbly in our ballroom or keep it simple in our BACK DOOR BISTRO.

      All the lobster, all the salmon, all the sushi, all the shrimp, all the in-season specialties – scallops, soft-shell crabs, oysters and more -- all the salads, soups and sweets you can hold (plus something from our carvery for the omnivores among us, too.)

      This popular event keeps us hopping!

The grand traditional furnishings serve as the perfect backdrop for the cuisine and fine dining service. Dinner in the Saint Louis Room is widely considered the best meal in the city! 

      BAR & LOUNGE ON 15
      With a grand granite fireplace (original to the Club, circa 1964), a grand piano and a spectacular view of the Gateway Arch, this Lounge offers lush space for conversation and cocktailing.

      Read one of our complimentary newspapers here during the afternoon. Visit for a soothing beverage at the end of the day. Spend a few minutes before you head to the theatre or a business meeting. Wait here for friends or colleagues to gather before your lunch or dinner reservations … or … stay late for your favorite after-dinner libation overlooking the lights of the city. This space provides a complete departure from the faster-pace, higher-energy vibe of BAR 14 -- formal enough to make you feel oh-so-posh and pampered but not stogey, stiff or stuffy.
