Brewington Kentucky native A.J. Brewington sells everything from Eames rockers ($425) to mounted hartebeest horns ($325). Her specialty, though, is vintage glassware, like a set of six delicate aquavit glasses ($160) from Portuguese producer Weil, made in the 1940s (4731-4733 McPherson Ave.; 314-361-5373).
Chase Park Plaza Built in 1922, this landmark hotel recently completed a four-year, $100 million renovation that includes a refurbishment of the in-house movie theater serving locally brewed Schlafly beer. The sprawling, arcaded pool terrace—built in time for the 1956 Miss America contest—is now a setting for late-night drinks (212-232 N. Kingshighway Blvd.; 877-587-2427).
Kaldi's Coffee House Kaldi's, the city's best-known coffee roaster, opened their original, charmingly rumpled café 11 years ago (a fourth is now in the works). The intense French roast is the best match for their outrageously rich "gooey butter cake" (700 De Mun Ave.; 314-727-9955).
