St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood is getting a new cocktail bar this weekend.
Lazy Tiger, the latest venture from Yellowbelly and Retreat Gastropub co-owners Tim Wiggins and Travis Howard, opens Fri., Sept. 4 at 210 N. Euclid Ave. The bar, in the space of the team’s former event space, The Hideout, is described as the pair’s first true American cocktail bar.
“What I think St. Louis doesn’t really have that I’ve seen in other cities and I love is the dark, intimate cocktail bar that has 13, 14 drinks on the menu, doesn’t list classics, is experimental,” says Wiggins, who is also the bar’s beverage director.
Alongside Wiggins, the cocktail menu was also designed by David Greteman, Lazy Tiger’s new lead bartender who was most recently behind the bar at Elmwood, and Seth Wahlman, general manager at Yellowbelly. The menu is sorted by style of cocktail – Negronis, Martinis, Clarified, Flips, Highballs, Sours and Spirit Free – as opposed to sorting the cocktails by another criteria, such as the base spirit.
