Central West End

Perched on the eastern edge of Forest Park and over a century old, the chic Central West End is full of charming sidewalk cafés, galleries, antique shops, restaurants, boutiques and pubs. It's a little European, a little New York and totally St. Louis. The CWE is the perfect place to relax and people-watch after exploring the neighborhood's popular visitor attractions. Adjacent to the commercial district, tree-lined streets with stately turn-of-the-century homes distinguish the area. Look for the family apartment of playwright Tennessee Williams, said to be the setting of his play The Glass Menagerie. The breathtaking Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, housing the world's largest collection of mosaic art, anchors this exciting neighborhood. The World Chess Hall of Fame, home of the world's largest chess piece, also has its roots set in the CWE. It regularly plays host to the top chess players in the world and major national and international competitions.

Annual events include a popular house tour in the spring, the Central West End Art Fair & Taste Festival in June, a Greek Festival during Labor Day weekend and Halloween festivities in October.
