Wonderful old architecturally pleasing homes with many terrific local restaurants and some shops. Bounded by Barnes-Jewish hospital and Forest Park. Has a different feel than many other St. Louis neighborhoods. Could come here for every meal in a visit and find a different good option each time. Not a lot of lodging options, though, and those that are here felt... More

The Central West End has it all - fine dining (Wild Flower is great!), pubs (Tom's), upscale bars (Whiskey House and Sub Zero, to name only 2) and great shopping (Left Bank Books - unbeatable). Great for a nice walk, great for outdoor dining and people watching. Lovely old homes, fascinating people, a blend of cultures and ages - young... More

The Christmas decorations on the turn of the century homes were charming as were at a few of the retail businesses. A short walk away from the Euclid Avenue crowds and through residential streets, it is a wonderful place for an after dinner stroll. Food at most places is average at best, yet a few places stand out, Pi Pizza,... More

Probably the best place for visitors to St. Louis. Adjacent to the huge Forest Park and in the middle of great restaurant, shopping, antique shop, etc. area. There are a lot of hotels from the iconic Chase to modern Hyatt, Marriott, etc. Area has pretty much everything you could want.

The Good: Fantastic restaurants (Wild Flower, The Tenderloin Room), great bars (Llewelyn's Tom's, Sub Zero Vodka Bar), amazing cultural sites in Forest Park, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, antique shops, Left Bank Books...a terrific neighborhood. Very unique and very diverse. Most everything is within walking distance and this neighborhood is great for walking. The Bad: Parking is atrocious and... More

This was a super cute section of town. Found this too late to investigate the whole area, but had a very nice meal at one of the restaurants and enjoyed browsing a couple of the stores. We already decided next time we visit St Louis we want to stay in this area!

This is the place to be if you love shopping and restaurants. Plenty of small boutiques and antique shops as well as restaurants and coffee shops. The Basilica is located in this neighborhood (another MUST SEE)

We walked around the neighborhood and window shopped. We went in Golden Grocer, which is a wonderful health food store that has been there for 30 years or more. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
