Sunday Tiki Sunday (August 30)

August 29, 2015

tiki photoSunday, AUGUST 30

Join us for the third and final installment of TIKI SUNDAY, the day where we open early, close early, and we shake, muddle and blend up delicious rum potations for your sipping, swilling, or slurping delight. We’ll be wearing our finest Tiki garb, serving up suckling pig, and giving this last sultry summer Sunday our absolute all. Once a month we toss out our well-loved menu and banish those small plates in favor of rum, reggaeton and the surf-happy sounds of the sixties. We’ve dug up recipes from the Tiki heyday, with vivid names like Missonary’s Downfall and Suffering Bastard. You might see blue curaçao. Expect a glorious mix of clashing floral patterns, coconuts cracked open with a katana, and the sound of a Vitamix pummeling it’s way through fresh pineapple and mint.


The TIME: 2pm SHARP to 9pm

The DAY: Sunday, August 30.

Best Bar

A mainstay of STL’s cocktail culture, Taste never fails to impress, thanks to its top-notch cocktail menu, speakeasy decor and innovative fare. In the hands of the talented bar staff, carefully curated spirits and housemade ingredients become crisp renditions of cocktail classics. Sip on a Southside (Broker’s gin, sugar, lemon and mint) while snacking on an order of the addictive spiced cashews, and there won’t be any question why Taste was a James Beard nominee for Best Bar Program. Central West End, 314.361.1200.

Cocktailians have flocked to Taste by Niche in St. Louis ever since the craft cocktail lounge opened in the summer of 2009. But the tiny 18-seater quickly outgrew its digs. Chef-owner Adam Altnether recently moved the cocktail haven to a larger space in the trendy Central West End neighborhood, where he and talented beverage director Ted Kilgore are raising the bar to new heights.
