Central West End Neigborhood

It’s a little European, a little New York and totally St. Louis. Perched on the eastern edge of Forest Park, St. Louis’ chic Central West End is filled with charming sidewalk cafés, exciting galleries, fascinating antique shops, trendy boutiques and cozy pubs.
It’s the perfect place to relax after exploring the park’s popular visitor attractions, shop or simply stop and people watch.

Adjacent to the commercial district are tree-lined private streets with stately turn-of-the-century homes. The boyhood apartment home of playwright Tennessee Williams, said to be the setting of his play “The Glass Menagerie,” also is located here.
The breathtaking Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, housing the world’s largest collection of mosaic art, is one of the anchors of this exciting neighborhood. Annual events include a popular house tour in the spring, the Taste of the Central West End food festival in June, a Greek Festival on Labor Day weekend and Halloween festivities in October.
