When St. Louis passed the new laws that tightened the reins on smoking in the area, Old Timers Saloon in Breckenridge Hills was left with a choice: Either stop serving bar food or ban smoking within the establishment. The owners chose the former, and it's a shame, because the inclusion of food would put this bar over the top. Described by staff as a "blue collar bar", Old Timers has a loyal clientele of neighborhood folks and union guys -- word is it was quite a cop hangout when it still served food, as the police station is just a couple blocks away. The upstairs area has a large U-shaped bar that can be approached from all angles and the newly renovated downstairs has a small stage for live entertainment and a pool table. Mondays are half price on everything -- so if they only still served food I think this place could potentially cure even the worst case of the Mondays.
