When it comes to cheap and plentiful parking, St. Louisans have it pretty good. Drivers from Chicago, San Francisco or NYC are envious, and for good reason. But even here, weekends can get crazy in trendy neighborhoods. If you (or your date) is wearing a mini and stilettos, or if the crazy St. Louis weather is wreaking havoc — or if you just want to feel like a high roller — you can indulge in some valet parking at these local hot spots.

Europe Night Club
710 N 15th St.
St Louis, MO 63103
(314) 621-5111
www.europenightclub.com

The Europe is tricked out with a cybertronic light show, the hottest DJs and live music. Night crawlers will find the rendiest crowds, two floors of action and a mezzanine overlooking the dance floor. It’s the Lou’s hot spot to see and be seen. Parking along this trendy stretch of Washington Avenue can be especially tough, so when the Europe has special events, they bring in a third party service to handle valet parking for their clientele. Check out the calendar of fun and trendy events the club puts on to see what kind of night you’re in for.

Molly’s
816 Geyer Ave.
Saint Louis, MO 63104
(314) 241-6200

On weekends, the 800 block of Geyer is a rolling mass of traffic, pedestrians with beers in hand, and shuttle trolleys going to and from ballgames. Groups of revelers block the street with the St. Louis Barcycle (a multi-seat bicycle with built-in bar) and limos. So, on Friday and Saturday nights, Molly’s offers valet parking. In the summer, Molly’s itself is the primary draw in this block, with partiers flocking to enjoy the tiered patios and live music. Molly’s is more bar than nightclub — a comfortable place to hang out with your casual (but still very cool) friends. Valet parking is $5 on Friday and Saturday evenings, so you can roll up in style and still have enough cash to grab some drinks.

The Pepper Lounge
2005 Locust St.
Saint Louis, MO 63103
(314) 241-2005
www.thepepperlounge.com

Valet parking is just the beginning of the swanky Pepper Lounge experience. The club, housed in a turn-of-the-century warehouse, evokes a 1950s Vegas vibe. Mahogany floors, warm lighting, velvet booths and a Polynesian courtyard meld together into a luxurious retro experience. The club is open Thursday through Sunday from 9 p.m. until 3 a.m., which just so happens to coincide with the perfect times to opt for valet parking. Top-drawer DJs, a full line of cocktails, and a dance floor packed with beautiful people keep The Pepper Lounge hopping. Parking will only set you back $10, unless you want to go for the VIP valet parking for $20.

Lola
500 N 14th St.
St Louis, MO 63103
(314) 621-7277
www.welovelola.com

Lola has won a load of “best in St. Louis” awards, including ones for “best bar” and “best cocktails,” so it’s no wonder they also offer valet. The drink menu includes some unique categories: Burlesque Beverages, Strippertinis,  Absinthe Cocktails,  Mojitinis and Fairitinis, just to name a few. Lola’s absinthe lounge solidifies its “trendiest cocktails” position. Music might be live or spun by DJ on any given night, and a diverse crowd means great people watching. This trendy neighborhood around 14th and Washington is packed on weekends, so you’ll really appreciate being able to slip the valet $10 and forget about finding a spot.
