Downtown on Tap: Bridge Tap House Opening

David Bailey opens Bridge Tap House and Wine Bar Downtown.

 

The recent opening of Bridge Tap House and Wine Bar marks the trifecta for restaurateur David Bailey. The proprietor of late-night/date-night great, Baileys Chocolate Bar, and hip brunch spot, Rooster (just one block from Bridge), has another hit on his hands in the form of a specialty spot for sipping and supping on local, artisan offerings.

The gem among the handcrafted menu is the cheese and charcuterie selectionfeaturing a rotating medley of meats both smoked on-site and procured locally. Every brew-o-philes fantasy is played out behind the bar with 36 taps, many representing Missouri craft beers. And the globally inspired wine list rotates regularly based on whats in demand, both by customers and by Baileys seasoned palate. In memory of Baileys late brother, who was a violinist, Bridges de?cor is composed of solid wood components with stringed accents throughout. Bailey said he chose the name Bridge because, “a violins bridge is artistic yet functional, a necessity that is often overlooked.” Poetic, for sure, but you’ll undoubtedly find the simple allure of Bridge impossible to over-look (1004 Locust St., Downtown, 314.241.8141).
