In many ways, Midtown could be considered the college-aged twin of the sophisticated Central West End. Midtown is the home of St. Louis University, making it one of the more young and hip areas of St. Louis. The majority of the homes in the area are owned by the University and those that aren’t are usually rented out to college students. The popular “Midtown Alley” houses many great casual restaurants, including a good ol’ fashioned pizza joint and a vintage-style soda fountain. You can also find some unique shops along this row. If you’re looking for college-style nightlife, check out a few of the small, rowdy bars along Laclede Street.
