Dear Tavern community,

Over the past five years we have worked very hard to provide an environment that was both fun for diners and nurturing for local artists and performers. While the performances have often attracted large audiences, and we have always paid the bills, the business is not profitable. Because of this, we are making the difficult decision to close the Tavern after June 25th.

We are proud of everyone who has presented creative work at the Tavern: the musicians, artists, poets, etc. We are grateful for our staff and everyone who has supported us and regret that we will not be continuing our mission.

We still have some great events scheduled through the 25th that are important to both the performers and us, so please come enjoy the music, food, and drinks as always.

The Tavern of Fine Arts aims to provide a relaxed and comfortable wine bar and café. We feature fine wines, select liquors, craft cocktails, specialty beers and a full food menu available six nights per week in either the performance room or the barroom.

We are dedicated to providing an environment that encourages and fosters the patronage and presentation of musical, visual, and literary fine arts. Our space displays the work of local artists. The exhibits will change periodically and with each change we will host an opening party. We are also a venue for the performance of chamber music by the wealth of talented classical musicians in the St. Louis area.

The Tavern is a perfect place for friends and neighbors to come together for dinner and share a bottle of wine amidst beautiful art and music, or simply sit and read. We look forward to meeting you!
