Planter’s House is a cocktail bar that pays homage to the landmark Planter’s House Hotel, an iconic St. Louis establishment that closed during Prohibition. Out of the hotel came the first-ever cocktail book, whose recipes live on at its craft cocktail protégé in Lafayette Square. The full bar serves Prohibition-era classics like Hemingway Daiquiris, Vieux Carres, swizzles, and fizzes, mixed with new-school moves from the kings and queens of cocktail: Dale Degroff, Giuseppe González, and Audrey Sanders. And then there’s the Bullock Room, a speakeasy-esque bar located just upstairs. Full menu, low lighting, can’t lose.
