Fans of Gothic architecture will not want to miss this fine example of the style, complete with a belfry tower flanked by gargoyles. The church's most impressive feature, however, is found inside behind the altar, an area graced by intricate carved screens called reredos made of stone from France. Parishioners held the first service in this church on Christmas Day of 1867. It is the seat of the oldest Episcopal parish to be established west of the Mississippi River. Free tours are conducted weekdays inside the cathedral that is a National Historic Landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Market Street of St. Louis lays spread right in the center of the city, along the stretch of the downtown area. One of the prominent streets of the city, the Market Street connects with the Interstate 64, and other major avenues of roadways of the city, thus making it a prime real estate location. So, visitors to the city would be recommended to start their exploration of the city from this street, which is lined with several shops, restaurants, bars, and other entertainment haunts. The street also features prominently in many of the city's events, such as the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, which starts off here, and the Market Street Blues Festival. Call to know more.

A massive and architecturally important building in the center of downtown, the Old Post Office opened in 1884 after more than a dozen years of effort and expenditure that went into millions of dollars. Built of Missouri red granite and Maine gray granite, the building was designed in the French Second Empire style and greatly resembles its contemporary in Washington, D.C., the Old Executive Office Building. By 1961, the building was virtually empty, with its federal courtrooms and offices having moved to newer buildings. Targeted for demolition, the Old Post Office survived only after a 15-year, nationwide effort by preservationists.
The Boom Boom Room offers its diners an experience like no other. Although the French delicacies which are cooked in a contemporary style and the zippy craft cocktails offered at the bar are more than up to par with the highest expectations, it is the variety show which takes place while one dines which really attracts the crowds. From singing acts to high-flying aerial acrobatics, the show runs the gamut. Entertainment also includes burlesque, old-school singing acts, side-splitting comedy sets and a number of specialty performances. For a unique and lively dinner date, this is the perfect destination.
