So St. Louis wasn’t necessarily on the top of my list of places to visit, but work sent me there and so I decided to explore.
For my accommodations I stayed at the beautiful Magnolia Hotel which was built in 1924 and is a historic building. It was love at first site when I walked in and saw the sunken bar and chandeliers all over the place. Then off to the side in the library the windows were stained glass reminiscent of a church. Next when I reached my room I fell in love. A bedroom with french doors and a tufted headboard had me swooning. I love a good boutique hotel and this place satisfied all my needs.
I managed to sneak out to dinner a few evenings but my most memorable meal was at Robust Wine Bar Downtown. The selections of wine was vast and overwhelming so I went with my favorite — a champagne flight. I was quite impressed. I also did glazed brussels sprouts and roast trout and they were simply amazing.
I also had a chance to visit the beautiful Union Station which was the site for a meeting I attended and I turned into a 7 year old when the amazing light show came on. I didn’t get to explore much outside the city but I hope to get back so that I can explore and taste more of the city (including Sweetie Pies). I did however get to have some St. Louis Gooey Butter cake and well that made my trip.
