Riverfront Times' Description

As a pseudo bar-cade and punk venue, CBGBs carries the dive bar aesthetic on its sleeve. GBGB has cheap beer, good jams and great people. Grab a cold PBR and hit the arcade cocktail table or the Pac-Man machine. Shuffeboard, pinball and darts provide more entertainment options in the next room. On a lucky night, the bar gets packed with show-goers and live music, ranging from dirty bar rock to snotty punk. Plenty of ashtrays and bar stools occupy the space, so smokers won’t need to bear the weather of the outside world. However, for the outdoor-inclined, a spacious patio with wooden benches provides ample seating. The building itself looks distinctly St. Louis, carrying with it a classic style preserved by punk culture. CBGB stands as the solid regular hang for the brazen barfly.

    Small, fun bar on South Grand, and you've gotta love the Light Bright! They don't really get going until right before they close, but their beer is cheap and they're a quick walk to/from many other bars in the area!

    Wear a gas mask - cigarette smoke is thicker than pea soup. Nasty.
