Wicked Lady Pub - CLOSED
St. Louis, MO 63116
Riverfront Times' Description
There's nothing wicked or ladylike about The Wicked Lady. Look past the odd decor (stained-glass birds!) and the fact that this is a pub without any draft beer, and it's clear this Bevo spot is a hidden gem. The fare ranges from Scottish pub food (Scotch eggs and the meat pies known as "birdies") to excellent thin-crust pizza to burgers and wings. The standout isn't one specific dish but the restaurant's signature "Wicked" sauce, as thick and nearly as dark and molasses, a little sweet, with a heckuva kick. It tops the "Wicked" burger and might wean you off ordinary Buffalo wing sauce forever. The joint has a decidedly masculine air; rough-hewn stones line the entrance way, and the booths are made of brick and mortar. The octagonal bar resembles a giant umbrella, and there's an unexpected dash of color at the very top -- stained glass peacocks, which add visual flare to the Wicked Lady's otherwise neutral palette.
Tips from foursquare
Why is it always so friggin cold in here?
We love that the bartenders made us feel right at home, and the cheap drinks are good, too. If you like American Honey, try a Sweet Lucy and water. (Gabe Hartwig)
Scotch Eggs are good. Service is quick & friendly
Great Atmosphere and Great Food
It's one of my favorite bars. I love their wings. Not to mention one of my favorite bartenders work there. If you go fri. or sat., ask for Tina. She's the best.
