7036 Clayton Ave Saint Louis, MO 63117
In the basement of the Cheshire Hotel you’ll find this trendy Italian restaurant. Basso has a good happy hour with inventive cocktails served up at the huge bar that is the focal point of the restaurant. Catch the game on the TVs or cozy up with a date in one of the booths for drinks or dinner.
Dimly lit but with a lively playlist, it strikes a good balance between romantic and cozy but can develop into a party atmosphere later in the night.
Excellent happy hour: $5 select wines, $4 craft beers, $7 craft cocktails, and $4-$7 bar menu, from 4-7 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Grab one of the 40 seats around the huge bar and enjoy some authentic Italian cuisine, but more importantly, try one of the cocktails. The bar scene is always buzzing here.
