Pelican's Restaurant

Located on South Grand Blvd (2256 S. Grand to be exact) in the Tower Grove East neighborhood, this building was built in 1895 as a "first class restaurant and liquortorium."  Known later for owners James and Catherine Pelican, who ran the establishment from 1945-1978, the former restaurant was recycled into offices in 1986.  However, today it sits vacant and in need of renovation.  This building became a St. Louis city landmark in 1976.


  1. If I had millions of dollars, I'd buy and refurbish that place. Maybe put a sign on it, "Leif's Liquortorium!" Welcome to the CDP blog community - I hope you enjoy the ride!

  2. Thought this was an appropriate "Thank You" since it's what I thought of when you opened with "had a million dollars."
