#mySTL Downtown Guide: Nightlife

Night owls, this list is for you. From drinks to dancing, Downtown St. Louis is full of late-night options for those who prefer to party after dark. We’ve rounded up a few establishments to add to your list perfect for everything from girl’s night out to a place to party after the game. Cheers!

Flamingo Bowl

Nightlife doesn’t just mean dancing—instead of the dance floor, hit the lanes at a late-night bowling alley! Open until 3:00 a.m. seven days a week, Flamingo Bowl offers an extensive menu of appetizers, pizzas and sandwiches in addition to drinks and bowling. Who cares if you don’t get a strike when you can order a Strike It Pink vodka cocktail?

Start Bar

Step back in time to your days at the arcade. You may not win prizes at Start Bar, but you can order a Drunken Slushy or parm-and-garlic Bread Nugs which beats a 75-ticket sticky hand or balsa plane any day. Test your skills at this adults-only arcade with Skeeball, Killer Queen or a myriad of console and pinball machines.
