The district is named after Pierre Laclede, the man who founded St. Louis. Amuse yourself by walking on the cobblestone streets or, if you are feeling bold, take a horse-drawn carriage ride and enjoy the view of the riverboat casinos on the Mississippi. There are several restaurants to choose from, and when the weather permits, you can dine outside and listen to the street musicians. Partake in a dinner theater show at the Royal Dumpe, which is actually a lot better than the name implies.
Likes: The Old Spaghetti Factory, and a couple of other eating places and bars, but we didn't go in the others this time
Dislikes: everything is starting to look really run-down - it appears the city isn't doing the upkeep they should; there appeared to be several closed places. And by this I mean things like the signs on the buildings that say the name of the streets are wearing, and if you look at the ground when you walk, you are glad to have shoes on - there is quite a collection of gum stains, bird dropping stains, discarded wrappers, napkins, etc., and more; and more.... just 'little' things, but they add up to an overall impression of a sad place that once upon a time used to be great.
I've been here in the 90's when it was hopping, and well-kept-up. I am sad about it now.
I rated value high - we ate at The Old Spaghetti Factory and the prices were very reasonable.
We rode the metro down to Laclede's Landing mid-afternoon. There weren't any stores open for shopping, but plenty of bars and restaurants were open. It was cool to just walk around and see the old architecture and cobblestone streets.
Every city I visit has a historic neighborhood that someone tried to revive as a nightlife district. Usually they are just depressing. If you want to get drunk with other tourists and college kids go here. I though St Louis had enough real neighborhoods where regular people can go and have a nice dinner/drinks.
Everyone should be informed to stay away from Club Buca. The bouncers are brutal, skanky waitresses, etc. It's a dangerous place to go and there are racist understones. Please be aware that this place is not representative of Laclede's Landing and St. Louis. One visit to this place will make tourists be glad they are just tourists in the city!
The old building made the landing a great place to just, hang out and have a bite to eat. It is really relaxing. you don't realize that you are in the middle of the city. The brick streets are blocked off for only horse buggees and humans.It is a great place. Great transportation to and from Lacledes Landing.
we lliked to sit outside at the restaourants and have a drink at happy hour and watch the people and carriages go by closr to the arch so yyou can walk around and look and come back and sit we also found having dinner before 4 you could get luch still and was a lot cheaper so you could get a great expensive dinner for less price
