Everything You Need to Know about Busch Stadium
Natives here know it as the Cardinal Nation. St. Louis is consistently ranked as one of the best baseball cities in America, and it’s no surprise why.
All it takes is one trip to the Gateway City to see just how important baseball is to the culture and lifeblood of the city.
World Series Winners
Sitting right in the heart of downtown St. Louis, the new Busch Stadium marks the home of the eleven-time World Series winning St. Louis Cardinals. The stadium, built in 2006, provides a stunning open view of the city surrounding it, with the famous Gateway Arch casting its shadow behind second base.
Tickets to Busch Stadium
Tickets for a game at Busch are very reasonably priced, stretching from as low as $25 to $250 dollars. Prices rise as you get closer to home base, but there really isn’t a bad seat in the house.
You can also rent a private suite to take in a ballgame with a group of friends or family. When renting a party suite, your group will be able to enjoy both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as an all you can eat buffet paired with a selection of Budweiser products and soda on tap.
If a party suite isn’t for you, there are plenty of food options in and around the stadium.
Mike Shannon’s Steak and Seafood
For years, Mike Shannon’s Steaks and Seafood has been a well-known pre and post game celebration spot for all Cardinals fans. Located just a couple of blocks north of the stadium, the restaurant is in walking distance, making it a convenient and close option.
Joe Buck’s BBQ
Joe Buck’s is also another popular spot on game days. Opened by the sports announcer himself, Joe Buck’s is a BBQ restaurant that is consistently rated as one of the best in the city.
Discover Ballpark Village
If you are looking for an alternative game viewing experience along with a meal and drinks, you should check out the recently constructed Ballpark Village.
Finally after years of anticipation and planning, Ballpark Village opened its doors to Cardinals fans at the beginning of the 2014 season.
Just across the street from the stadium, Ballpark Village consists of a new Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum, as well as a selection of bars and restaurants including the Budweiser Brew House and the Cardinal Nation Restaurant, both of which have rooftop outdoor seating looking into the ballpark so you can enjoy the game from just across the street.
Ballpark Village is also the new home to the Fox Sport Midwest Live! Studios.
One great thing about Ballpark Village is that its doors do not close when the game is over.
The restaurants and bars are open all the time so sports fans always have a place to gather to watch away games.
Most recently, Ballpark Village was also home t celebrations for the St. Louis Blues most recent playoff bid against the Chicago Blackhawks.
