Many people count Off Broadway among the best places to see live music in St. Louis -- if not the best. Every kind of music looks and sounds good here, from local punk to national alt-country. The bartenders are as friendly as the prices, and there's plenty of room, if not always plenty of seats. A non-smoking policy coupled with a great outdoor hang-out area provides the best of both worlds for smoker and non-smoker alike. Be sure to go upstairs for a bird's-eye view of the action.

Guys, Daniel Hill made it rain blood yesterday. You know, for Slayer. We don't know about you, but this past weekend was a pretty intense party, blustery weather be damned. And it don't stop. Keep thi... More »
Head to the early show at Off Broadway on Saturday night and you might find a seated crowd of senior citizens enjoying some '30s revivalism. Come back the next afternoon, and you might stumble on one of the venue's KDHX-sponsored Musical Merry-Go-Round kiddie shows, which have earned rave reviews and become a nation-wide draw for bands playing to the tot audience. Off Broadway is hardly limited to age extremes, however -- the venue's standard fare is still standout local shows with... More »
The best rock clubs feel like home -- no matter if your version of home is a dirty dive, a cozy theater or a history-laden bar. Benton Park's flagship venue, Off Broadway, is a little bit of all three. More important, in recent years the club has become a haven for the city's bands and musicians. Annual traditions -- the local band scramble, a Thanksgiving-eve performance of the Band's Last Waltz and KDHX-sponsored benefits/tribute nights for people such as Alex Chilton or Warren... More »
Since coming out way ahead of the curve and making its venue non-smoking a couple of years ago, Off Broadway has consistently improved in pretty much every way a venue can. Sure, the smoke-free nature of the club makes it inviting to folks who don't want to come home smelling like the inside of one of those cigarette-butt receptacles, but infrastructure improvements, sound-system upgrades, the addition of talented live sound engineers (see Best Live Sound Engineer in the Music section) and...

For the true live-music connoisseur, quality sound might be the most important element of a concert experience -- even the actual quality of a band's performance takes a back seat. Think about it: Shoddy sound can quickly and completely ruin a night out at a club and have you cursing the waste of the hard-earned $8 that got you in the door. On nights when Ryan Adams mans the controls at Off Broadway, showgoers can rest easy. Adams, a product of Webster University's audio program and the... More »
Just because people tend to sit down while watching Off Broadway's roots- and folk-heavy acts, don't think this south-city club doesn't know how to rock. No matter how understated acts like the Long Winters and Bobby Bare Jr. might sound on record, you can bet that when they show up for work at this multilevel joint they'll be turning the volume knob clockwise. More than twenty years young, Off Broadway appeals mostly to the socially liberal and fiscally conservative (those who like cheap... More »
Good bouncers never live up to their unfortunate occupational title. The key to good bouncing, then, is never having to bounce, save for when the occasional drunken reveler pulls his pants down and proceeds to light his pubic hair on fire. Okay, kick that guy out. Maybe. Fortunately, Big Dan Telle rarely has to consider such strong-arm tactics, owing in no small part to the fact that Big Dan lives up to his nickname. Granted, Off Broadway's off-the-beaten-path location and deep-fried... More »
When Off Broadway changed ownership last year, the rumor mill went into overdrive, and all the speculation was bad. As it turns out, Off Broadway hasn't just kept everything that made the club the best place to hear live music in St. Louis; new owners Connie Garcia and Joe Telle have made the South Side institution even better. The club now offers tasty, reasonably priced bar food; features more beer on tap; and even sports a new wine list. Most important, Garcia and Telle have hired an... More »
