First Look: Art Bar St. Louis

April 29th 02:04pm, 2014

Doors recently opened at Art Bar St. Louis on April 25, revealing a creative, colorful space brimming with local artistic touches at 2732 Cherokee St. Co-owners Tom Halaska and Tatyana Telnikova told The Scoop in January they wanted to create a bar that embraced all kinds of art – visual, performance, musical and more. Already, local artists cover the walls with two large murals and about a dozen paintings for sale.

A 54-foot-long bar dominates the space, offering seats for 20 to 25 patrons. Halaska said Art Bar St. Louis currently does not have a drink list, as he wants the customers’ orders and the bartenders’ creativity to determine the menu. However, this doesn’t mean options are limited. The bar is well stocked with a growing selection of 15 wines by the glass, five local draft beers, several bottled brews, and plenty of spirits to go around. The Art Bar crew is also creating its own house simple syrups, like Serrano mint, lavender and beet.

Those feeling peckish can select from a daily menu of charcuterie, cheese and house-made pickles to create a board of their choice. Or order up a paper cone of freshly popped popcorn seasoned with the flavor of the day, from orange chipotle to tequila lime. Art Bar St. Louis will soon serve up their own pierogis, prepped at HandleBar (Telikova’s other restaurant), and Halaska said there are plans to build a kitchen and eventually serve a full menu.

Hours are Monday to Saturday from 4 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Here, a look at what to expect at Art Bar St. Louis:
