ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) – Some great news for some past old time patrons….a familiar haunt is back open for business.  Missouri Bar & Grille, fondly referred to by regulars as “MoBar,” reopened after more than year-long closure with a refurbished new look and brand new concept.  The old familiar drinking hole, opened on April 1st with a refined, modernized interior and some fun new menu items.  What used to be a cafeteria style restaurant is now a sports bar with grilled food.

Co-Owners Louis Panopoulos, along with his brother, Jim Panopoulos, wanted to honor their brother and keep his legacy alive.  Trifon Panopoulos was the owner for 33 years, before he passed away in 2013.  And he ran it by keeping it open 365 days a year, seven days a week, so the brothers have big shoes to fill.

Besides featuring an updated kitchen and remodeled bar, you can expect to see higher ceilings, new lighting and some fun entertainment items such as darts, a shuffleboard and a spirited jukebox.  The brothers are still serving popular mainstay items from MoBar’s previous menu, including steak sandwiches, gyros and toasted ravioli.  But they’ve added on crispy, thin-crust pizzas with your options of combinations sold in three different sizes.  They also now offer tasty appetizers, like chili-cheese nachos, spinach and artichoke dip with pita chips, as well as spicy feta.

They love their old time regulars but are hoping to entice a whole new younger crowd this time around. And with 3,500-square-feet of room that accommodates 97 seats, there’s plenty of room.  So, whether you’re wanting a great meal, or are looking for a fun happy hour with good discounted food and drinks, Missouri Bar & Grille is where you might want to head.
