Red brick townhomes and al fresco dining lend Soulard a quaint European vibe. Just five minutes from the Arch, it’s easy to spend a night wandering the neighborhood’s bars, restaurants, clubs, and music venues. Particularly during Carnival season. Soulard hosts the second-largest Mardi Gras festival in the US. If revelry isn’t on your agenda, perhaps the Soulard Farmer’s market or a free tour of the Anheuser-Busch headquarters and brewery are.
