    This is one of my favorite bars in St. Louis - the unique atmosphere is unbeatable. Parts of it's oddness remind me of the City Museum! Their patio is A - Mazing in the warm weather!

    This Venice Cafe is an experience. ecclectic venue... great drinks, a unique atmosphere, talented local musicians and a patio like you've never seen before. It's like steping into a painting. This place attracts a crowd of friendly considerate people starting at the door with "the world's most dangerous poet". The place has a great vibe ...but you'll have to go....to know.

    Take your time and visit all the floors and the patio. You'll see something new every time you visit.

    Cool place, unlike anything else around Soulard. Cash only. Makes you feel American to pay cash for a PBR.
