Quintessential Dining and Nightlife | Food St. Charles Outside-of-the-store

Quintessential Dining and Nightlife is an important part of the riverside historic district in St. Charles. As you explore our wonderful city, finishing the evening with a nice dinner and some live acoustic music is a fantastic idea.

 

If you want to feel the pulse of the city's nightlife, visit us on a weekend night. We transform our main dining area into a dance floor and let a live DJ cut loose.

AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE HISTORIC DISTRICT

Join us for fine food, drinks,

live music, and fun at 149 North

Main Street in St. Charles, MO.

The building destined to become Quintessential Dining and Nightlife began in the 1920s as a one-story structure. Palace Clothing occupied the part that is currently our main floor and dining area. A Piggly Wiggly grocery store was where our Members' Room is today. These businesses were vital parts of St. Charles for half a century or more.

ECHOES OF THE PAST

In November 2007, Jeffrey Q. Parrish purchased the building. In December 2008, he started restoration. Because he valued the building's historic connections, he returned the building's original façade and preserved the older look throughout the interior design.

 

In 2009, the second floor and rooftop deck were installed. In July 2009, the rooftop terrace opened for business, adding a wonderful outdoor space for entertainment and socializing to the city's historic district.

 

Today, the rooftop bar is available all year long. It's enclosed and heated for winter use, but the roof opens up to the sky during the spring and summer.
