And Where to East in St. Louis Afterward
It may not be time for football season just yet, but that doesn’t mean that your favorite football venues are going to be empty until August.
St. Louis’ Edward Jones Dome is home to many events outside of hosting the St. Louis Rams. If you’re looking for something to do in the city this spring, you should check out the other events being hosted at the Jones Dome.
St. Louis has long been considered a soccer town. Last year Busch Stadium was host to a premiere league game between Chelsea and Manchester City. The game was a huge success. This spring, St. Louis will be host to yet another big soccer event. In preparation for the World Cup coming up this summer in Brazil, Bosnia – Herzegovina will be taking on the Ivory Coast in an exhibition game at the Edward Jones Dome on Friday May 30th. You should try getting tickets while they last.
Where the Dome Is Located
If you are heading into the city for the big soccer game, you might want to learn about what else is in the area. The Edward Jones Dome is located right in the heart of downtown St. Louis. Due to its central location, it is surrounded by some of the best eats and hotels in the city. If you’re already making a trip downtown, you should take advantage of the restaurants in the area while you are there. After all, a break from your normal dining routine is always a welcome way to spend your day.
A Bite to Eat Nearby
An international event like the Bosnia v. Ivory Coast match is cause for some international cuisine. There are endless options for international cuisine in downtown St. Louis.
Just a few blocks from the Edward Jones Dome is Tigin Irish Pub and Restaurant. If you appreciate a good plate of fish and chips this is the place for you. Of course Tigin is also known for its Irish corn beef and cabbage and wonderful tap selection full of British and European brews. This standard British pub fare is perfect for a pre or post game meal.
Other options for international cuisine downtown can be found on Washington Avenue, just a short walk away from the dome. Washington Avenue is one of St. Louis’ busiest nightlife spots in the city. It’s home to some of the best restaurants and bars in the city, including a few delicious Asian restaurants.
Hiro Asian Kitchen is a wonderful alternative to standard Chinese fare. Specializing in southeastern Asian cuisine, this new restaurant is quickly becoming an area favorite. Other Asian options include Mizu Sushi and Takaya New Asian.
If international cuisine isn’t necessarily your cup of tea, you need not worry. There are plenty of popular and delicious downtown restaurants that serve classic American dishes. Pi Pizza for example is famous for having the best classic Chicago style pizza in St. Louis.
For a burger and fries, you should check out St. Louis favorites like Joe Buck’s and Mike Shannon’s.
Big Daddy’s on the Landing is also known for having a great burger and fries, and for chicken wings you can’t beat Show-Me’s.
Avoid Parking Fees
Parking in the big city can often be a pain. When you are heading downtown, finding a parking spot in the crowded city can be a hassle that is simply not worth the frustration.
To keep your day out as fun and stress free as possible, you should consider hiring a professional driving service to take you into the city. You won’t have to worry about parking and you can have a few more beers at the game. A limo service is also a great way to add a touch of celebration to your trip, perfect for birthday parties or other special occasions.
