The Scoop: Third location of Three Kings Public House to open in South County

Friday, November 6th, 2015



South County residents and movie buffs can grab a pint before catching a flick next year when Three Kings Public House opens its third location at 30 and 40 Ronnie’s Plaza in the complex by Wehrenberg Ronnie’s 20 Cine. Doors are expected to open in spring 2016.

“There are a lot of corporate restaurants in that area, but not a lot of independents,” said co-owner Derek Deavers. “We’ll be able to offer things that the corporate restaurants can’t.”

Among those offerings will be a private space and an upgraded menu. Renovations will turn a former Kennelwood Pet Resort and an office space into 4,000 square feet of dining and drinking. A planned 900-square-foot party room will open on a patio that will be created by reclaiming parking spots. That patio will feature a bar and 140 seats.

Three Kings opened its second location in Des Peres a year ago. Deavers said its success inspired them to “strike while the iron is hot,” adding that if that iron stays hot, they hope to open another five to six locations in the next few years.

The menu at the original University City and Des Peres locations are being revised this fall, and when the South County pub opens its doors in March, its menu and bar program will be consistent with its sister locations. Look for around 30 beers on tap, plus seasonal cocktails and a late-night happy hour.

Sneak Peek: Three Kings Public House in Des Peres

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

In March, The Scoop announced that Three Kings Public House, a gastro pub located at 6307 Delmar Blvd., in The Loop, would open a second location in Des Peres. After months renovating the former Mosaic space at 11925 Manchester Road, pub owners Ryan Pinkston, Derek Deavers and Derek Flieg are ready to open doors.

Regulars of The Loop locale can find their favorite dishes from the Three Kings’ menu at the new location, as there are few differences between the two food menus. On the beverage side, craft beer options are deeper at the Des Peres location, which offers 30 beers on tap compared to the two dozen at its sister spot in University City.

The most dramatic difference between the venues is the space itself. Gone is the open kitchen from Mosaic’s run in this strip mall. Instead, a wall divides the 140-seat space between the dining area and the bar section. Reclaimed wood holds court on both sides – on the walls, tables and flooring – with material that hails from torn down city churches and regional barns. A wooden wall also privatizes the patio and decreases noise from busy Manchester Road. Here’s what you’ll find when Three Kings Public House opens Monday, Oct. 6:

The Scoop: Three Kings Public House to open a second location in Des Peres

Since opening in 2011, Three Kings Public House has garnered a reputation as a fun neighborhood bar serving quality food and fine craft brews in The Loop. Now, co-owners Ryan Pinkston, Derek Deavers and Derek Flieg are looking to bring that same neighborhood bar feel to Des Peres.

Three Kings is opening a second location at 11925 Manchester Road, in the space formerly occupied by the now-defunct Mosaic, as reported by St. Louis Magazine’s George Mahe. June 1 is the target opening date. “That’s an aggressive timeline, but we feel we can get it done,” Pinkston said. “We feel that, right now, there is a good market out there for what we are doing.”

Three Kings fans can expect numerous similarities between the two locations. Pinkston said the Des Peres spot will have “the same look with the wood and the brick” as its sister restaurant in University City, where old photographs of The Loop pay homage to the history of the neighborhood. Although design is still to be determined at the Des Peres space, items from that neck of the woods could make an appearance. “Hopefully we can track down something,” Pinkson said. “We definitely want the people of Des Peres to feel this is their neighborhood bar.”

The majority of the food on the menu will be similar to the current Loop menu. The bar will have between 20 to 25 craft beers on tap, as well as a dozen or more bottled beers, primarily domestic brews. A cellar list is available at the Delmar watering hole, but Pinkston did not think that element would be carried over to the new location.
