Slo Tom's Lounge Image

Slo-Tom's Lounge is undoubtedly best described by local Americana-rock superstars The Bottlerockets in their anthem named for the bar: "I know where we could go when we ain't got nothin to do / All we're gonna need is a $10 bill, maybe we better bring two/ Baby let's you and me go down to Slo-Tom's / Let's go down to Slo-Tom's / Ain't much of nothing but it sure is something..." The humble south city hole-in-the-wall, named "Best Place to Drown Your Sorrows" in the RFT's Best Of St. Louis 2010, is one of the oldest bars on South Broadway. And while some bars are content to boast of a daily happy hour or two, here, Happy Tuesdays boasts a whopping six hours of discounts. With the right planning, you can drink all day Tuesday, sleep all day Wednesday and show up just in time for Thursday night Pool league. Just don't anger the canine head of security, Fat Girl, who rests quietly bar side, an unsuspecting (but adorable) staple to the Slo Tom's staff.
