The renovated Old Rock House building, which borrows its name from a historic riverfront building dismantled in 1959 to make way for the Gateway Arch, features 6,000 square feet on three distinct levels, a state-of-the-art sound, light and video system and a menu created by an award-winning chef.
Co-owner Tim Weber- an industry veteran best known for ten years at the helm of legendary music club Mississippi Nights- believes this combination, a concept the Old Rock House calls an “integrated music venue, eating and drinking place” will allow for a new experience unlike any other in the St. Louis music scene.
“It seems like the concert business- especially at the club level- focuses almost exclusively on the bands and never the customers. Our mission is to focus on both,” Weber said. “We plan to book the best talent and deliver it in the best, most customer-friendly environment. If you want to rock out front and center with the band, you should be able to do that without passing out from the heat or getting crushed against a barricade. If you’d rather chill on a couch in the back and sip a single-malt, you should be able to do that too. There are so many ways to experience a concert; our aim is to accommodate what every customer’s version of an ideal concert environment is while still maintaining a rock and roll vibe.”
In addition to a meticulously restored building, the Old Rock House offers well-lit, free parking directly across from the venue, food to satisfy every craving, and boasts a drink selection to suit every palate and every wallet. “Our customers are able to come here right from the office or right off their couch, any night of the week, and get great music, great drinks, and a great meal. Ultimately, they create their own experience; the energy and the very nature of this venue allows people to do just that.”
The Old Rock House is located at 1200 South 7th Street, St. Louis MO 63104
