Audubon’s Palace Bar was first opened in 1903 by Ed Sexauer and Company. It would become a magnet for a variety of building businesses including the City Hotel (Hotel Audubon) over the course of the next century. If you listen carefully, you can still hear the sounds of times long forgotten, and the voices of countless patrons who have graced its presence! This is the same Palace Bar which offered a cold beer or a shot of spirits to both friends and travelers alike. This is the same Palace Bar which sponsored local shooting matches for ready to eat hams every Friday night in the early 1900’s. This is the same Palace Bar which welcomed the curious to see the first television in Ste. Genevieve County in 1947. This is the same Palace Bar that reopened its doors in 2014 inviting all to reminisce about the past while creating memories for the future!
All are welcome to relax, eat, and drink….and if the spirit (or spirits) moves you, please feel free to inquire about a room upstairs in Hotel Audubon…one of Ste. Genevieve’s most historic hotels!
From ice-cold locally crafted beers, hand-crafted cocktails, and the finest wine selection in the region, the Palace Bar is……where the past meets the present!
