Best bar

Blueberry Hill
6504 Delmar Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63130

Sometimes simpler is better. With dart boards, pinball machines and a jukebox inside, Blueberry Hill has a low-key vibe that’s perfect for students.

Patrons are friendly, laid back and always open for conversation. Blueberry Hill’s prices are reasonable, service is quick, and high-heeled sorority girls are kept to a minimum.

Founded in 1972 by Loop legend Joe Edwards, the bar is filled with old-school knick-knacks and memorabilia, including vintage lunch boxes and toy figures—all of which make for great conversation starters. The bar is also famous for its beer selection of over 60 bottled beers and 18 draught taps.

Located on the Delmar Loop, Blueberry Hill is a clear pick for “best bar.”

Blueberry Hill’s concert venues, the Duck Room and the Elvis Room, bring in local music acts—in particular, famous St. Louis blues legend Chuck Berry, who plays there every month (and sells out at lighting speed).

Though the drinks are on the weaker side and the food is on par with the typical bar fare, the distinct, the hometown feel of Blueberry Hill sets it apart as our favorite. Plus, its convenient location on the Loop makes it easy to bar hop or head back home—or better yet, to Jimmy John’s.
