These are the best places to start when you're trying to find a hookup in STL:
Do you happen to be a big fan of Budweiser and sexy St. Louis girls? Then you’re going to want to check out The Biergarten. This brewery brews over 25 brands, including Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Select, Select 55, Natural Light, Busch, Busch Light and several other American style lager beers.
Along with a fantastic beer selection, this also happens to be a wildly popular place for singles to hang out. The brewery supplies guests with delicious comfort food options along with amazing live performances. You won’t want to miss out on meeting the girls who come to The Biergarten.
Adult FriendFinder is for guys who are tired of Tinder. This is a great option for guys in their 20's but if you’re 30 or older, or you’re hoping to find a hookup with someone 30+, Adult Friend Finder REALLY shines. There are more than 90 million users which means chances are good you’ll find a local hookup in St. Louis.
In all of our time experimenting with just about every option out there to find a woman for a quick fling Adult FriendFinder has stood out. They are the options we tend to recommend first and are the one that we have seen the best results with. You can’t have as many users as they have and be popular as long as they have been without helping men AND women find what they are looking for. Everyone should at least give their free trial a shot.
When you're tired of wasting time and actually want solid results AFF is the best option.
We have had the best luck on AFF and think you will too. It’s a popular hookup option used not only in the city but all over the world. People have been hooking up on Adult Friend Finder since 2006, and it’s one of the oldest and most established hookup platform still in use today.
When you're looking for good drinks and something with a lot of single women these are the bars you should check out first:
If you’re looking for a fun sports bar, look no further. It stakes its claim as the Original Baseball Bar and why not? It’s a short walk from Busch Stadium -- you can watch the game on the TV and hear the real-time crack of the baseball bat. It’s centrally located to the Anheuser Busch Brewery, The Arch, and the historic Soulard neighborhood. If you park here, your first drink is on them. And if you come here on a weekend, you might meet some Wichita girls too.
This is where Cardinal fans stop for $4 beers before having to pay the bitter $9 per beer in the stadium. We’ve heard the alcoholic drinks aren’t that great, so take our word for it and stick to the beers.
We thought St. Paddy O’s was an awesome place for a pre- or post-game drink and a pre- or post-game hookup. If you get lucky before the game, sit on the patio and watch some of the game from here to avoid the crowds at the stadium entrance. Otherwise, come back after the game to enjoy the win or sulk over the loss. Either way, this is the best hookup bar for Cardinals’ fans.
We can’t say enough about this incredible little bar nestled in The Grove. The walls are decorated with deconstructed bicycle parts, there are church pews and patio seating, s’mores shots, Russian food and designer pizzas. On Wednesdays, they bust out the bingo boards, and on Fridays, it’s a $5 cover -- not a lot to pay for one of the most badass nights you’ll ever have. And in case you're having trouble finding Oklahoma City hookups, you may have better luck here.
We loved this bar because we’ve never experienced a Wednesday quite like this. Happy hour is from 4 pm to 6 pm, the drag queen bingo was hilarious, and if you’re not down for bingo, there’s plenty of eye candy to keep you occupied near the bar and pool tables. The house-infused spirits will keep you happy while you mingle with some of the coolest people town has to offer.
Karaoke is one of those rare activities that allows anyone to fly their inner freak flag as it mingles with the inner rockstar to create the ultimate badass. At the Double D Lounge, your groupies are waiting for you. When you want to find hookups near you try a local place like this.
The peeps who hang here are primarily older, late 30s and up, while a few younger folks dot the crowd. The drinks were cheap, the popcorn was free and the food was not worth writing home about … but that crowd! Oh my, that crowd.
We thought it was a little trashy, but sometimes trashy can be super hot. You’re bound to meet someone when you steal the stage, or maybe you’ll be her biggest fan. If you’re not so lucky on stage, there are connection points like darts, pool tables and some older video games. For us, this was the best bar to get laid in St. Louis. Have fun and get some!
The 360 bar is a magnificent tribute to the city. It is elegant and casual all at the same time. You needn’t be a hotel guest to check out the sweeping views of the city. From this vantage, you can get a literal 360-degree view of Busch Stadium, the Arch, and the surrounding area. We understand why Thrillist voted this rooftop bar one of the best in the world.
We loved 360 because it sets an immediate romantic mood. Whether you’re here on a date or hoping hookup, you’re sure to win her over regardless of whether she’s a baseball fan, a fine wine connoisseur or a foodie. Can't get laid in Omaha? You won't have that problem here!
We recommend timing your exit, though. You can wait up to 30 minutes or more to go back down, and by that time she may no longer want to “go down” if you know what I mean. The 360 is great for lunch, dinner, dates, hookups or big groups. Have fun!
Located 20 minutes from the city center, the Hoffbräuhaus of St. Louis-Bellville is the ultimate dining, drinking, dancing and live music experience for any size group. Bring a couple of bros and get social at their communal dining tables or share a pitcher of your favorite brew with a babe.
There’s live music Monday through Saturday at 4 pm and Sunday at 11 am and 4 pm. If live music doesn’t toot your Alphorn, then check out their calendar for seasonal parties.
We liked the Hofbräuhaus of St. Louis because it feels like a magical place to meet with others, drink, dance and possibly find a hookup for the night… or for life.
No list of St. Louis hookup bars would be complete without McGurks! That’s John D. McGurk’s Irish Pub if ya nasty. Established in 1978, they’ve built a positive reputation ever since.
Sure, we could mention how they were featured in Esquire magazine, or that they were named America’s most authentic Irish Pub by National Geographic, or that Buzzfeed and Business Insider voted McGurk’s the best Irish Pub in town and all of Missouri. However, we think it’s more important to note the authentic Irish Music they play, the Irish food they serve and the 15,000 square foot outdoor garden for guests to enjoy on a beautiful day.
We agree: McGurk’s has to be the best Irish Bar we’ve ever visited. What we loved most was the relaxed atmosphere, the chill vibes and the diverse guests who travel from all over the country to sit and enjoy all that McGurk’s has to offer. It goes without saying, if you’re looking for an interesting St. Louis hookups, this should be at the top of your list.
The low-lit dive bar atmosphere of CBGB makes it the perfect place to pick up girls. The bar is super low-key with fantastic drink prices. It’s one of the best dive bars in the city and always has an energetic and fun crowd hanging out. Along with great drinks and even better people, the place also hosts fantastic live music acts. If finding Tulsa hookups at dive bars is becoming difficult, you'll have an easier time here.
This dive bar truly has it all. You can even challenge a cutie to a game of pinball or darts. There are lots of great ways to break the ice here. This is definitely one of the most popular bars for meeting cute girls in the area.
Here are a few other bars that were pretty great and also worth checking out:
If you're looking for something a little more exciting with a lot of single girls these are the clubs that have been great options lately:
Club Viva during Latin Nights is by far the best place to pick up girls in St. Louis. This is one of the hottest nightclubs in the city for dancing. Lots of girls come here to unwind with a drink in hand while on the dancefloor.
The club plays an amazing blend of eclectic music that gets everybody energized. Even if you’re not great on your feet, you can take advantage of the salsa lessons that they offer as well. This is your best opportunity for meeting girls. So come here on a Saturday night and prepare to be blown away by the beauty of all of the girls here.
You’ll always find single girls in town hanging out at Pop’s Blue Moon. Out of all of the possible nightclubs and bars in the city, Pop’s is one of the homiest and comforting of them all. The venue often hosts amazing live music acts that get the audience pumped up. The girls here are also hot and easy to approach!
The beers are cheap and delicious, so you won’t have to empty your pockets to have a good time here. When the band plays a great song you’ll immediately see girls on the dancefloor looking for someone to dance along with them. So be brave and take your chances. You could walk away a lucky guy.
These are other great clubs for meeting cute single girls that didn’t quite make the top of our list for one reason or another:
If you're not much of a night owl these are some great spots that have a TON of single girls and are easy to start conversations:
Not every hookup joint has to be a bar, and not every bar has to serve alcohol. Picasso’s is a coffee bar that slings espresso at two locations: St. Charles’ city center and on Beale Street in St. Charles. Although each Picasso’s Coffeehouse is about 30 minutes from the city center, we knew our list would be incomplete without it. The singles and the place are that cool.
They serve coffee roasted specifically in town and local pastries from The LaBonne bakery. Fill your eyes with the work of local artists whose work adorns the walls, and fill your ears with the sounds of local musicians who perform throughout the week.
It stands out as a local favorite for both daytime and nighttime hookups. Where else can you start the afternoon with coffee and end the evening with Salsa Dancing? If you’re looking for a classy lady who lives for coffee, live music and local art, try Picasso’s.
You’re thinking about meeting someone and you’re not sure where you want it to go. Quick one nighter? Something that lasts longer than a hookup? Depends on who she is. The last place you imagine for hookups is a local grocery, but believe us, you’ll want to pop in at Straub's. If you’re a foodie, why not find someone who is equally fascinated by the different food selections available for every palate?
We chose Straubs as a local hookup spot because it’s as eclectic as its customers. Locals come for their daily needs. Out-of-towners staying at the Chase Park Plaza like to visit the Straub’s and explore the aisles, marveling over the exceptional options in snack foods, import cheese and drinks.
If you’re sick of the apps and the bland open liners, and you want someone original and fresh, find them at Straub's.
Would you believe us if we said that we’ve picked up tons of St. Louis girls at a coffee shop? Well, it’s time to test it out for yourself because it’s true. There’s really no better place to approach girls during the day than at Blueprint Coffee. This awesome cafe is super inviting and has lots of space to sit and enjoy your drink. If you've met someone on the best hookup apps in Lincoln and she happens to be in town, why not meet her here?
The coffee here is roasted in-house and tastes amazing. You’ll be addicted after the first sip. You’ll also notice that there are tons of girls here who happen to be reading their books or typing away on their laptops with their coffee. So don’t be afraid to ask them what drink they recommend. Everyone here is incredibly friendly!
Would you ever think that we’d be suggesting the gym as a great place to meet girls? Well, CrossFit Gambit happens to be an incredibly popular place to meet people. This happens to be one of the best places to get a workout in. So if you’re looking to get fit while meeting girls who take care of their bodies, then this is the place to check out!
We highly recommend taking one of the classes. It’s a great way to get your body pumped while joining the rest of the group. It also makes for a great segway when you’re looking to strike up a conversation with the cute girl you noticed. Figure out the best way to approach the girls that helps you feel confident and self-assured. And of course, don’t go interrupting a girl in the middle of her workout.
No list would be complete without these last options:
