If you’re looking for metal or punk in the area, Fubar is self-described “everything louder than everything else.” Housed in the renovated former Olive Motor Company building, Fubar is owned and managed by Bob Fancher, who did time for more than a decade at the Creepy Crawl. Fresh coats of paint, digital jukeboxes, two bars and a music equipment supply corner provide a great atmosphere for this loud-as-bombs rock venue. (source: Riverfront Times)

The renovated Old Rock House building, which borrows its name from a historic riverfront building dismantled in 1959 to make way for the Gateway Arch, features 6,000 square feet on three distinct levels, a state-of-the-art sound, light and video system and a menu created by an award-winning chef.
In addition to a meticulously restored building, the Old Rock House offers well-lit, free parking directly across from the venue, food to satisfy every craving, and boasts a drink selection to suit every palate and every wallet.

There’s something primal and viscerally satisfying about paying to stand and sweat among the crush of bodies while your favorite indie band or local rockers obliterate the stage. If you’re looking for a club that is based on atmosphere or ambiance, you might need to look elsewhere. But if it’s music you’re after, whether it’s punk, rock, metal or something completely different, the Firebird is your new best friend. Having hosted everyone from the Dead Milkmen and Swans to Big Freedia and Best Coast, the Firebird is a lively and open-minded host to an show-going experience to be remembered.

Delmar Hall is the newest addition to the St. Louis concert scene – a 750 capacity venue situated directly next door to The Pageant in the heart of The Loop.
Conceived and developed by The Pageant owners, Delmar Hall’s mission is to be St. Louis’ premier mid-level concert venue, filling the void left when Mississippi Nights, the beloved riverfront club, closed after a thirty-year run in 2007.
Upcoming shows at Delmar Hall:
In 1985 we opened up the Elvis Room to bring live music into Blueberry Hill. It was the next step for us and for helping to make The Loop the live music center of St. Louis. Fast forward to 1997: the legendary live music room the Duck Room is born. The Father of Rock & Roll and first person inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Chuck Berry, inaugurated the Duck Room and played over 200 consecutive monthly concerts in the intimate 340-capacity room.
Upcoming shows at Blueberry Hill Duck Room:
Foam’s spacious shop on Cherokee provides plenty of space to spread out, either for a long night of studying, or perhaps drinking over some choice entertainment in an intimate atmosphere. Nightly performances include everything from local and touring bands of all kinds to open mic night and live comedy. Belly up to Foam’s counter for a coffee, tea, beer or cocktail, or get the best of both worlds with the house specialty “Kosmo” made with Kamora coffee liquer, vodka, espresso and cream over ice.
