Webster Groves

Bursting with creativity, Webster Groves encompasses internationally recognized arts institutions, lifestyle boutiques stocked with inspired goods and irresistible culinary destinations.

Originally five separate communities along adjacent railroad lines, Webster Groves is now a unified city with must-see attractions. Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, for instance, aims to make opera accessible and inclusive through innovative and collaborative storytelling. Every year, Opera Theatre presents a spring festival season with inventive productions sung in English and accompanied by the Grammy Award-winning St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. As of the 2022 festival season, Opera Theatre had presented 33 world premieres, which ranks among the highest percentage of new work in the repertory of any U.S. company.

Amid the tree-lined streets and historic homes of Webster Groves, you’ll also find a range of restaurants, serving everything from Bosnian ćevapi to Thai khao soi and prime rib eye to St. Louis-style pizza. If you need a quick pick-me-up, you can snag gourmet coffee, superfood juices, craft beer, bread-sliced bagels, artisan chocolate, cake pops, freshly baked pastries and more throughout the neighborhood.

That said, once you’re here, you’ll want to stay awhile.
