Joe Edwards

Joe Edwards St. LouisJoe Edwards is the driving force behind the revitalization of The Loop, designated “One of the 10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association.

Nationally-renowned restaurant and music club Blueberry Hill was the first of a new era of unique owner-operated businesses in the area. His subsequent attractions include the beautifully restored 1920s Tivoli Movie Theatre, the non-profit St. Louis Walk of Fame with its stars embedded all along The Loop’s sidewalks, The Pageant concert nightclub, the Pin-Up Bowl and the sensational Moonrise Hotel, Eclipse Restaurant and Rooftop Terrace Bar.

Joe also has renovated numerous historical buildings and encouraged one-of-a-kind specialty shops, restaurants and cultural institutions to make The Loop their home.

Currently he is spearheading the effort to bring a fixed-track, vintage trolley system back to the area.
