While we have been getting our accolades back up – namely being readers choice a number of years in a row on the Riverfront Times best of St. Louis – we stumbled across this review of The Waiting Room on the RFT’s website. They got the wit and wisdom right, and it’s pretty neat to see mention of the bar being made from pocket doors. As one of the things that came from the original bar in TWR’s location, we are glad that it got some well-deserved recognition.
The Waiting Room is a rock’n’roll joint done right, with wit and wisdom to spare. The bartenders and the patrons are some of the friendliest, down-to-earth people you can hope to meet, and the drinks and signature shots are fantastic. The Waiting Room carries excellent micro-brews, import and domestic beers, and TJ’s pizza. It’s also got a pool table, a darts league that meets on Wednesdays and a lovely patio out back. Every Thursday there’s Beer League, a beer-tasting club that welcomes aficionados to sample international brews. Make sure to check out the beautiful hardwood counter — it was fashioned from historic pocket doors.
