Best Throwback Bar

The Tick Tock Tavern

Staff Pick

If "The Heat Is On" makes your throat catch a little, if you're convinced that Vince Schoemehl was the city's last great mayor, if "owling" to you means decorating with birds and not perching on a fire hydrant like a jackass, welcome home to the Tick Tock Tavern. Belly up with some cash and order a Schlitz or a Stag or whatever your old man's drink of choice was back in the early 1980s. There's a good selection of liquor, and local beers are also well represented. Join Tick Tock from "Bored Game Sundays," or geek out on your own at the Centipede/Millipede/Mission Command console. Tick Tock reopened in 2014 after a twenty-year absence in Tower Grove East, and by pairing with local artists and businesses for special events, it has once again proven itself to be an excellent neighbor. It also proves that you can, in fact, go home again. To approximately 1982. 3459 Magnolia Avenue, St. Louis, 63118.
