Fright Nights!

‘Tis the season to plan some supernatural Halloween hilarity. St. Louis is home to a trio of eerie attractions, including Creepyworld, which happens to be the biggest, longest haunted screampark in America (think theme park with a few terrifying twists). Another fave is the Haunting of Lemp Brewery, an underground adrenaline rush that puts you face-to-face with William Lemp who shares the haunted history of the old place and a word of warning: don’t go in! Just a few minutes from our Delmar Loop St. Louis hotel [is St. Louis in here for search purposes?], there’s The Darkness, the grand-daddy of them all. Featured on National Geographic Channel, the Travel Channel, the Today Show and USA Today, this haunted house celebrates 20 ghostly years of spine-chilling technology. And, of course, no visit is complete without a haunted hayride…alongside a few friendly zombies and fellow guests of our St. Louis boutique hotel.

Address: 3500 Lemp Avenue, St. Louis

Toe-Tapping Good Times

From up-and-coming indie bands to rock-and-roll icons, the music scene in St. Louis is alive and well. Moonrise guests hardly bat an eye when they see superstars kicking back with a cocktail on our Rooftop Terrace Bar. After all, there’s no better place than our cool St. Louis hotel to relax before heading out to one of more than a dozen music venues in the Loop. One of our favorites? Blueberry Hill, where St. Louis’s own Chuck Berry plays to standing-room-only crowds during a once-a-month gig drawing locals and visitors to the club’s laid-back Duck Room. Play darts while you enjoy a pint of one of 18 beers on tap (or choose from 62 bottled brews). Is it any wonder the Moonrise is the city’s favorite St. Louis boutique hotel?
