In terms of unique local architecture, it doesn’t get much better than this. Nearly everyone in St. Louis recognizes the iconic Bevo Mill, but located just behind that famous landmark is another treasure: Little Bevo.
Built in 1924, seven years after Anheuser-Busch opened Bevo Mill as a “country club in the city,” this 5,700-square-foot bar & restaurant space looks like it just got plucked out of a German village. I have a friend who hates this building, considering it too kitschy and theme-parky, but I think it is masterful and whimsical and I love it!
It has been vacant for at least 10 years and needs extensive renovation, but oh, what potential! I can’t believe a microbrewery or a Bosnian restaurant hasn’t scooped this place up yet! Especially considering that the building has an apartment upstairs and still retains numerous vintage details, including beautiful terrazzo floors…
