Guerrilla Street Food has found a second home – inside the new Tropical Liqueurs. As The Scoop reported in June, Tropical Liqueurs is moving from its current location in Soulard to at 4104 Manchester Ave., in The Grove. Its last day in Soulard is this Sunday, Dec. 4.

At the time, Billy Thompson, a co-owner of the frozen cocktail bar, spoke excitedly about the neighborhood, the building and the possibility of partnering with a local restaurant at the new space. This possibility became reality when Trops decided to join forces with Brian Hardesty and Joel Crespo of Guerrilla Street Food. The new space is slated to open in early March.

“We hadn’t thought that a new location in St. Louis was what we wanted to do before,” said Hardesty. “We really didn’t have a serious conversation about a second St. Louis location because we were focusing on Chicago, but this is a cool new development, and we’re excited about this partnership.”

While Tropical Liqueurs will cover the beverages, Guerrilla Street Food will handle all the food. “The location is going to have its own chef and its own specials, but people can still expect to see some of the old-school classics like The Flying Pig, the chicken adobo and the lumpia,” said Hardesty.

Guerrilla Street Food will offer lunch and dinner, as well as weekly brunch service. Hardesty said he looked forward to the fun combination of tropical slushy drinks and Filipino fare. “I think it will be a good addition to the neighborhood and that it will integrate really well with what is already there,” he said. “We’re just really excited to get it started.”
