Don’t forget to wear your party shoes! A live band, The Free Years will be heating up the dance floor along with DJ European Soccer. Come prepared to party.

6/ Celebrate The We Heart STL Official Winners
Every year, our editors work tirelessly to compile a list of the top restaurants, bars, boutiques, venues, cultural institutions, salons, gyms and more. We put our finalists to a test in a round of people’s choice voting and also choose a final editor’s choice list of winners. All of these fabulous winners are featured in our annual Best of the City issue and celebrated at the We Heart STL party. It’s time to spread the love! Make plans to support your local businesses and congratulate them on their hard work. They make this city tick and we couldn’t be more thankful.
