Bar-goers have a new destination for food, drinks and live music at a recently renovated space on The Hill. Gaslight, an homage to St. Louis’ midcentury Gaslight Square entertainment district, aims to delight its patrons with three components: a full bar, Latin American-inspired eats and an in-house recording studio so visitors can watch musicians record live. Guests can get a glimpse into the studio via an expansive window, while a live audio feed provides the soundtrack for sipping spirits. Cha Cha Chow provides food via a walk-up counter, which patrons can take to go or enjoy in the bar.
The bar’s cocktail program features several drinks named after late, great Gaslight Square establishments: The Smokey Joe, for instance, is a sweet, savory, spicy and smoky ode to the bar of the same name, made with bourbon, mezcal, habanero syrup, peach, basil and Bittermens’ ‘Elemakule Tiki bitters – a harmonious combination befitting the artsy environs.
