The old and the new come together on Laclede’s Landing, as 19th century architecture meets 21st century dining and entertainment. The Landing, as the locals call it, is a collection of historic 19th century riverfront warehouses that have been converted into nightclubs and restaurants. Visit a brewpub, dance club, or dueling pianos bar, then try your luck at the Lumière Place casino complex or the Casino Queen located just across the river in Illinois. The district hosts special events like the free Big Muddy Blues Festival on Labor Day Weekend.
How to get there:
Located just north of the Arch grounds, it’s an easy walk from downtown St. Louis. The MetroLink light rail stops at the Arch/Laclede’s Landing station, and motorists should take Memorial Drive north to Washington Avenue. For more information, call (314) 241-5875 or visit www.lacledeslanding.com.
