Happy Hour – Gramophone
May 15, 2015
Finally! The sun has come to Saint Louis! To celebrate the arrival of those rays, we will be converging on the patio of Gramophone in The Grove this Friday.
Gramophone recently underwent a transformation earlier this year from a music venue to a bar/restaurant. They now offer a variety of sandwiches, as well as drinks. And for all you music lovers, don’t worry! Gramophone still has their stage and will have live music this Friday.
So come join us for food, drinks, music, and most importantly, sun!
