Spending a long weekend in St. Louis for our anniversary. Trying to pick a "neighborhood'. We like cool (old) architecture, great restaurants (farm to table type), fun bars (wine, bourbon, live music). We don't need to stay anywhere fancy as we rather spend money on food and drink. Would like to stay in a neighborhood type feel more so than downtown or suburby with chains - no malls, shopping..not interested. Walkable, but with options to be close enough to visit other "neighbourhoods.
Soulard would be a great neighborhood.
Also check out The Loop and the Central West End.
