The Grove proudly announces it’s presence with a huge sculptural banner that crosses over the street welcoming everyone to its diverse collection of bars, nightclubs, restaurants and shops. A favorite stop for GLBT visitors, the district is located between Kingshighway and Vandeventer along Manchester Avenue. You won’t find chain restaurants in this groovy section of town where the club owners and customers are creating the next new trends before anyone else knows the old trends are passé. Annual events include the Tour de Grove bicycle races in May and Grove fest in October.
Midtown and The Grove are two of St. Louis’ most buzzworthy neighborhoods. Craft beer, barbecue, soul food and over-the-top ice cream are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg in these parts of town.
