Riverfront Times' Description

Brennan's has achieved must-go status among St. Louisans. The quaint Central West End cigar bar and wine market recently got a big city renovation, adding to its already considerable allure. The bar on the main floor of Brennan's is presided over by a billboard-sized sign, with text that changes regularly. Recent offerings: "When a smoking Indonesian toddler looks cooler than you, it's time to reevaluate your Ed Hardy gear," and "Chuck Norris will be upstairs this evening playing ping pong with an ironing board and a watermelon." An unmarked door in the middle of the room leads to the modern-day speakeasy in the basement cellar.

    Laid back downstairs, louder and rowdier crowd upstairs.

    This place is great - especially their patio! If you go on Wednesday they have "debate nights" which are very entertianing! Highly recommend this place!

    This is by far my favorite bar in the West End, if not in St. Louis! The atmosphere is amazing, and all you have to do is go up or down a level if you're feeling something different. The staff is amazing; always helpful and courteous. The prices are a bit high, but well worth what you're paying for in my opinion. And, the music selection is always great!!

    Enjoy a cigar in the basement. Sip on a glass of Sawtooth while playing Ping Pong as Snoop Dogg looks on.

    My favorite St.Louis night spot! A small, yet hip place to hang out with friends and have a great glass of wine..

  • Jay B. on 05/20/10

    Visit the scotch and fine congnacs cellar with a cigar! Tell Kevin (Brennan) to give you a good story about one of his recent debate nights on topics of no consequence whatsoever. The best.
