Midtown St. Louis Information
Welcome to Midtown St. Louis
A vibrant entertainment, restaurant, and shopping district
We are super excited to be bringing America’s best cyclists to Midtown St. Louis. The Locust Business District, Grand Center, the Midtown Alley and St. Louis University all mix together to create one of the coolest and most eclectic districts in St. Louis
From the 1920s until World War II, this area was known as automobile row. The historic significance of the area was recognized in 2005 when it was added to the National Register of Historic Places, as the Locust Street Automotive District.
Midtown Alley’s “engine” is the 3000 block of Locust Street but cruises all the way from Theresa Avenue to the west, Leffingwell to the east, and Highway 40 to the south. After sitting idle for years, the neighborhood is revved up with new life from businesses, restaurants, galleries, shops and lofts.
Many buildings are the work of famed architect, Preston Bradshaw, and showcase beautiful design and detail. Come to Midtown Alley and discover the historic neighborhood that’s on the fast track to becoming St. Louis’ newest hot spot.
