Post Teens at Fubar

Fubar
Fubar, at the renovated former Olive Motor Company building is owned and managed by Bob Fancher, who did time for more than a decade at the Creepy Crawl. Fresh coats of paint, digital jukeboxes, video games, two bars and even some natural light filtering in provides some great atmosphere for this loud as bombs rock venue. When patrons enter the door at Fubar, they'll step into a small foyer with entrances to two equally sized, larger rooms. On the right side is the venue, with a stage at the front of the room to the right. One can expect the best local and regional rock bands, cheap drink specials and some good natured hazing from the bartenders at this midtown watering hole.

The Heavy Anchor
The Heavy Anchor is a newish nightspot on South Gravois. The bartenders serve cocktails in Mason jars, Heavy Anchor pins to festive-up that tatty punk jacket, and, just in case your Franzia problem is so out of control that you need a fix even in full view of strangers, boxed wine. Formerly the home of Antarctica, this bar/venue is one of a growing number of gin joints offering live, original music from the legions of talented music makers on the local scene and, yes, even some national artists as well. It's always free to get into the bar for drinks or movie nights, and shows are just $5. Artists lent their painting prowess to the bar, so the walls are covered with nautical-themed murals, including a glaring narwhal and a friendly blue octopus toppling a cityscape with its tentacles. You'll find local brews on tap, as well as such hometown munchies as Dogtown pizza, Billy Goat chips and Gus' pretzels.
