The Safest Bar In St. Louis

The Safest Bar In Town

Where to go when you need to drown your sorrows with complete security. In the US, a precinct is a local division of the police department. I don't know if this old building was once a police station but it could have been. Maybe cops hang out there when off duty. Can't say - I've never been in it. The logo resembles a St. Louis police department badge.

Jim Edmonds, the principal owner of the place, was a star center fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals. He wore the number 15. Edmonds was so full of energy and enthusiasm that he was sometimes called Jimmy Baseball.

If the architecture seems to match an old police station, then it would be a mix of the old use and the owner's number. Terrific reflection!

I remember when the Cardinals traded Adam Kennedy for Edmonds and (at the time) I thought it was a bad trade. Hah, what did I know. It's said the be the 5th best trade the Cards ever made (see hereL). The Lou Brock trade is considered the best, btw.

This would be a great bar to visit. I remember Jim Edmonds. Interesting that he stayed in St. Louis.
