What the Locals Know: The Grove is now one of the hippest neighborhoods in town with lots of great live music venues including Atomic Cowboy and The Ready Room … but there are also smaller bars, many of which has live music on any given night, like the Handlebar. Some places will have a duo or solo act not advertised, so you never know what you’ll stumble upon!
Music Note of Note: For more than 20 years, the non-profit Jazz St. Louis has been the foremost presenter of jazz in St. Louis and throughout the region, as well as being a leader in preserving the legacy of this musical genre. Hundreds of local- and nationally-renowned musicians including Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Harry Connick, Jr. and Al Jarreau, grace the Ferring Jazz Bistro stage each year. And make no mistake, it is one of the best listening rooms in the country…or as Bob Mintzer, multi-Grammy nominated saxophonist said, “Sonically, the best room on the planet!”
