This bar used to be sooo cool! But now avoid at all cost. It is the smokiest bar in the city, and now they have covered the doors with plastic so no fresh air can come in. When...

Wonderful local bar with delicious bloody mary's! 1/13/2008

This is one of my new favorite bars in St. Louis. It is kind of small but they have a new back room with couches and tables which is great. The Bloody Mary?s are amazing... best I've ever had. The atmosphere is relaxed, the people are fun, and it is very clean. I love the bartenders because they are fast, friendly, and know their stuff.... and their stuff is GOOD. Go here. Pros: Atmospere, staff, drinks Cons: Smokey more

Great bartenders, Fantastic martinis, Cigar friendly 10/18/2007

The Famous Bar is one of those overlooked, forgotten holes in the wall where an adult can go for a drink early after work, unwind to a delicious Bombay Sapphire martini, smoke a good cigar, and listen to some great music selected by the bartenders - blues, jazz, etc. before the young trendy crowd comes in and takes over. I highly recommend Steve the bartender make your drink. He has made it into an artform, and in a drink style of culinary perfecto, something delicious and smooth. This is an old school bar with a feel of a 1930's movie, and not an in your face 'ooh look at me' kind of drink haunt. Afternoons 3pm to approx 6pm on weekdays are quiet with a few regulars and some new faces, but overall it IS the best place in St Louis for martinis, AND sinfully wonderful bloody marys. Non-smokers beware however, it can get cloudy towards the evening. This is a good smoker's bar. Service is impeccable and prompt, and parking can be problematic if you arrive too late. For unwinding after work, there is no substitute for the Famous Bar. Pros: bartenders, martinis, cigar friendly, afternoon quiet Cons: none if you are a smoker and go early more

Really great 5/2/2007

This place really is pretty good for most purposes. I would stay away in the late morning but other than that I would recommend it! more

Avoid anytime after 7:00 pm on all days! 8/17/2006

This bar used to be sooo cool! But now avoid at all cost. It is the smokiest bar in the city, and now they have covered the doors with plastic so no fresh air can come in. When I first moved to St. Louis I was a regular of this place, and I will never say anything bad about the drinks, but I will speak poorly of the clientel. If you want to visit a bar where giggly little girls and their loud obnoxious boyfriends discover what it means to drink too many martini's this is the place. This place not only has lost it's appeal as a nice place to have a drink it has attracted all the obnoxious wanna be's from county. Pros: The drinks are good. Cons: The place is very smoky and the clientele are obnoxious. more

Martini Lover's Paradise 5/18/2005

The best martini I ever had was at this bar. And all the bartenders & staff are so friendly. It's a great place to have drinks after work. So everyone must check this place out. And try the Slutty Girlscout Martini, it's a regular favorite. Pros: Great drinks, Friendly service Cons: A little crowded more

great little diva dive 3/20/2003

Looks like a hole in the wall, but their chalkboard drink menus are out of this world. If you're a bloody mary or martini fan, you're in heaven. It can get very crowded on weekends, but I recommend going early and chatting with the cute and fun barstaff, or trying a weeknight. Pros: drink menus, staff, atmosphere Cons: street parking, crowded more

    Famous Bar is an anomaly: half blue-collar, half silver spoon. This crusty hole-in-the-wall manages to attract an eclectic assortment of revelers each weekend. The long, dark bar...
