It's difficult to think of Dogtown without Pat's Bar and Grill coming to mind. Opened in 1942 by Pat Connolly, then a recent immigrant from Galway County, Ireland, the eponymous pub is the canvas on which much of the neighborhood's green, white and orange history was painted. Over the decades, the venerable bar-and-grill has mastered the classic Irish pub formula: a down-to-earth atmosphere, friendly service, cold Guinness on tap and a solid menu, which includes not only a number of traditional Irish meat-and-potatoes entrees but also a smorgasbord of deep-fried fare. The chicken wings are arguably the best in Saint Louis, which might be evidenced by the fact that an entire roll of paper towels is supplied with each order.
In Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter drank tea. In St. Louis, Mad Hatters drink booze. On Saturday, March 30, Fuel, a local social volunteer group, is hosting its annual Mad Hatter's Pub Crawl. Dri... More »
Dogtown residents are an almost universally genial bunch. They open their neighborhood and occasionally their bathrooms to faux Irish revelers, and generally accept that overflowing trash cans and par... More »

Yeah, chicken twice this week. I felt bad about stumping everyone with the Weber's Front Row wings. And I'm pretty certain this is the easiest one yet.Guesses as comments. If you need clues, I'll be d... More »
Host a party at the Roost, and you rule. The second floor of Dogtown watering hole Pat's Bar and Grill, the room is equipped with a pool table, Golden Tee, darts, Internet-linked jukebox, television sets and its own bar. Rent the whole place, bartender included, for $200, and it's yours for the night. You can bring your own decorations and your own cake. Hell, bring your own karaoke machine if you think you'll get that drunk. There's plenty of pool-shooting elbow room for upward of 50 people. For $45 per tray (serves twenty), Pat's kitchen staff will supply guests with endless helpings of bar food — toasted ravioli, wings, potato skins, spinach-artichoke dip or lobster rangoon. If you want a more substantial menu, they'll serve up the standard roast beef or fried-chicken dinner for $13 per person. The Roost is possibly one of the best places in the neighborhood for no-frills unwinding, so don't be surprised if you find a pair of jealous regulars creeping up the stairs on a Saturday night. But chances are they'll turn away as soon as they spot you in your Mardi Gras beads and foil crown.
Love Pat's! They have a great breakfast and one of the earliest happy hours in town - 8:30 am! Pat's is also a hot spot for The Dogtown St. Pat's parade. If you are ever looking to rent out a space for a private party - pat's 2nd level, called "The Roost" is a perfect, cheap, spot!

Figuring out a way to get over a hangover is like trying to figure out how the great pyramids were built: Everybody's got a theory. Maybe back in the day, after some wine-soaked feast for Ra, ancient Egyptians cheered each other on saying, "I swear to Osiris! Just get your ass lifting some 10,000-pound limestone blocks and you'll feel so much better!" Screw that. It's all most of us can do to lift up our heads, regardless of the century. But Pat's--the Dogtown landmark akin to Egypt's... More »
Urban folklore can't get much better than how the hell frogs' legs found their way onto the menu of an Irish dive in Dogtown that's been around since 1942. Problem is, nobody who's alive today really knows for sure how that happened. All that's left to ponder is the end result: the best (and maybe only?) frogs' legs in town. Like much of Pat's menu, they're breaded and fried. Also like much of Pat's menu, they rock. With a greasy yet flaky texture to the meat and a cup of tartar sauce served... More »
There are at least as many places as ways to leave your lover. Some are more cruel than others. Excusing yourself to grab a beer at Busch Stadium and then hopping MetroLink, for instance, is a strategy that should be employed only if you truly want to make a statement and the other party really deserves it. Even then, the Cards are only in town a guaranteed 81 times a year, and some of those games are sold out. You need something more reliable, and -- unless your relationship is the kind... More »
