Downtown St. Louis will gain an itty bitty bar this spring. Tiny Bar will be set up a 250-square-foot shop in the lobby at 1008 Locust St. The bar, set to open in April, is a joint venture between Aaron Perlut (pictured), Andrew Barnett and Brian Cross of public relations firm Elasticity and the building’s owner Daniel Cook, as reported by St. Louis Business Journal. Elasticity is located on the third floor of the same building.

“It was a really instinctive decision in that Dan was trying to find a use for the space,” Perlut said. “We really wanted to create a very unique space that would complement what’s already downtown and serve high-quality beverages.”

True to its name, The Tiny Bar will seat just eight to 12 people, and Perlut said Tiny Bar will serve wine, five local craft beers on draft and top-shelf liquor and cocktails. We’ve been working with (co-owner) Ted Charack from Planter’s House to create a drink menu. We certainly won’t be relying on any of the (Elasticity) owners’ expertise for that stuff.”
