It’s the most wonderful week of the year — Delmar Loop Week! Kick-off summer on your favorite boulevard with a week full of fantastic events for all ages, including food, drink, shopping and entertainment. There’s nothing we love more at The Moonrise than an excuse to host parties and unique events for our guests, so we’ve got a jam-packed week of fun planned! Take a look at everything on the schedule:
Yappy Hour Wednesday, June 19
What makes a happy hour truly happy? When you get to bring your four-legged friends along! Join us on Wednesday from 4 – 7 PM on the rooftop of our pet-friendly hotel with your pooches for a special Yappy Hour event. We’ll be featuring a specialty “Best In Show” cocktail made with Una Vida tequila, and a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Stray Rescue of St. Louis. We’ll also be offering our standard happy hour specials.
Water and free Moonrise bandanas will be provided for your pups, too! Humans must be 21+; dogs of all ages are welcome but must leave the rooftop by 7 pm.
This event is weather permitting and will be rescheduled for a later date if rained out.
Queens in Space: 2019 Spice World Return Thursday, June 20
What better way to celebrate Pride month than with an out-of-this-world drag show on our LGBTQ+ friendly hotel rooftop? Queens In Space is an annual event that takes attendees on a journey back to Spice World, a planet trapped in the 90’s. This is not your average drag show, so get rad and ready for a full-blown concert with the “Spice Girls”! This event is the official after party for Pride Day in The Loop, where you can bring a canned good donation to participating businesses to receive special offers and discounts, so come early to enjoy all the fabulous food and shopping The Loop has to offer, and end your night with the best show in the galaxy!
Ticket price is $15 when purchased in advance on Eventbrite ($20 at the door) and each ticket includes one complimentary Pearl Vodka cocktail and light refreshments.
Everyone is encouraged to dress in their finest Pride-themed apparel and come prepared for a good time!
Make Music Day Friday, June 21
Make Music Day is a free, annual celebration of music that takes place around the world every year on June 21st. After its start in France in 1982, this event has become a tradition in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.
Make Music Day is open to anyone who wishes to participate! Musicians young and old, amateur and professional, and of every musical persuasion show out to share their music with the world, and St. Louis’ celebration takes place right here on the Delmar Loop. Bands will be performing up and down Delmar all day long — we’ll even have one right in front of our boutique hotel! Plus, the annual Pianos in The Loop installation will be here throughout June, so you can stop to tickle the ivories wherever you find one of these pretty painted pianos!
Delmar Loop Arts Fest Saturday, June 22
Celebrate the arts all day in the Delmar Loop, from the culinary to the visual to the literary and beyond! Creativity and activity centers will be located along the Loop at participating businesses and the Midtown Farmers Market, where adults and children alike can indulge their artistic inclinations and enjoy various specials and discounts. Be sure to come to “Chalk The Loop” from 10 am to 4 pm to leave your artistic mark on the sidewalks!
Monkey Mixer Sunday, June 23
Grab your bananas! We will be hosting Monkey Mixer, the official Saucy Soiree (presented by Sauce Magazine) afterparty, at The Moonrise this Sunday. Monkey Shoulder’s infamous “Monkey Mixer” truck will be parked right outside the hotel from 10 pm til 2 am, playing tunes and handing out free samples of whiskey.
The full “Miami Vice” themed afterparty will be up on the rooftop, where we’ll be featuring drink specials like blended Miami Vice cocktails, mixed signature and classic cocktails, and beer and shot specials!
