Free Live Music on Your Lunch Break Is Totally a Thing in Downtown St. Louis

This isn’t your granddaddy’s lunch break.

Starting May 3, Downtown STL, Inc. is launching an all-new Lunchtime Live experience. Every Friday through June 28, The Old Post Office Plaza on Locust Street will transform into a live outdoor concert venue from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm.

After a long winter, you’re probably used to ordering in or huddling inside your favorite restaurants. Well, it’s time to grab your lunch to-go and head over to the Old Post Office Plaza for amazing (and free) live music performances going down every week in the heart of Downtown St. Louis. In addition to new live music shows, Lunchtime Live will also feature cornhole tournaments, outdoor rock climbing walls, and more (to be announced). Did we say free?

So, who’s performing at Lunchtime Live? We’re glad you asked. Hot off the press, we just got exclusive access to the official Lunchtime Live artist lineup. Here it is:

May 3: Kevin Babb + cornhole tournament

May 10: Steve Ewing (of The Urge)

May 17: DJ Nune featuring a live music twist

May 24: River Kittens + FREE chess lessons

In addition to a live performance by St. Louis’ very own River Kittens, the St. Louis Chess Club is offering free chess lessons at the Old Post Office Plaza. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or don’t know what a “checkmate” is, the club’s instructors will give you a newfound appreciation for this timeless game.

May 31: Sean Coray

June 7: Kenny DeShields + Upper Limits outdoor rock climbing wall

June 14: Johnny Chase

June 21: Hillary Fitz

June 28: The Leonas + Upper Limits outdoor rock climbing wall

Your boss might wonder why your lunch breaks run so long on Fridays. But if you bring them along to Lunchtime Live, they’ll understand why.

We’ll see you this Friday.
