What To Do in St. Louis in January

The holidays will soon be over and the new year will begin. After the New Years holiday, January isn’t usually viewed as a “fun” month – but it is now! St. Louis is chock full of events and activities for all ages this January.

After years of being the most unique boutique hotel in St. Louis, we’d like to think we’re pros at recommending the awesome things to do in the city. From a stroll down the St. Louis Walk of Fame to a delicious Eclipse brunch, there are endless things to enjoy within walking distance of your hotel room door alone! Take a look at just a few of the things we’re excited about this month.
