Naked Vine bar in Chesterfield will close permanently in early December

Naked Vine, a bar and music venue located in Chesterfield, is set to close its doors permanently on Dec. 8. The closure was announced via a Facebook post last Thursday. “I write this note one day short of Naked Vine’s 14th anniversary,” owner Bryan Herr wrote in the post. “Covid has gotten the best of us, and it’s time to shutter this ol’ girl.”   

The bar is known for its live music on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as its extensive wine and whiskey menu. “It was the most unique and best bar in St. Louis,” Herr said.

Leading up to the closing, the bar will be open now through Nov. 25, closed for Thanksgiving until Nov. 30, and then open again from Dec. 1 to 8. The hours will be noon to 6 p.m. each day. 

The bar is decorated with an eclectic mix of pictures and trinkets. Herr announced that he would be selling much of the store memorabilia. “This is the busiest I’ve been in a long time,” Herr said. “People are stopping by to buy stuff.” 

The Facebook post states that “the taps haven’t run dry yet,” and Herr invites customers to stop by one more time before closing.
