After just four years in business in St. Louis, Howl at The Moon will close its location at Ballpark Village. STLtoday and others have learned that “Shark Bar”, a Cordish Concept, will open in the space. There is currently one other location in Kansas City’s Power and Light District. The bar is more of a tropical themed one with drinks sounding like things you find in a bar along the gulf coast. According to Shark Bar’s Page on the Kansas City Power and Light District’s website, they describe themselves as…
“Retro Surf... Retro Dance... Retro Cool...The home of the endless summer brings you the endless party. From frosty cool rum runners and piña coladas to Shark Bar's signature beach pail punch, pick your libation to unwind and hit the beach. The beach heats up with the greatest retro dance music this side of the North Shore. Kick back on the deck and hit the surf; it's the perfect party”.
Whether or not it does good here is anyone’s guess but the second phase of the project could only help it. With the Loews Hotel and One Cardinal Way, some people may just want to go a tropical bar sometimes. I guess we will have to wait and see how something like that does here in St. Louis. It should open later this year after a renovation of the space.
