(BaseballStL) – Three final tenants that will occupy Ballpark Village have signed leases with the St. Louis Cardinals, the team and developer Cordish Companies announced Thursday.
Ted Drewes, Howl at the Moon and Drunken Fish complete the first phase of Ballpark Village.
“We are excited to welcome these diverse tenants and brand partners to Ballpark Village,” said Bill DeWitt III, the President of the St. Louis Cardinals. “Drunken Fish, Howl at the Moon and Ted Drewes will help ensure that our grand opening next spring is a resounding success.”
Howl at the Moon is a dueling piano bar with 14 locations across the country and two in cruise ships, according to its website.
“By providing our customers with an outstanding entertainment experience reminiscent of the best of New Orleans, Howl at the Moon attracts a diverse audience comprised of guests of all ages,” said Jimmy Bernstein, founder of Howl at the Moon. “We are thrilled to once again partner with The Cordish Companies and become a part of Ballpark Village.”
Drunken Fish already has three locations in the St. Louis area: Laclede’s Landing, Westport Plaza and the Central West End. It will occupy about 5,250 square feet on the first floor of the village.
“We are very excited to be a part of Ballpark Village,” said owner Munsok So. “As a local resident, I am so proud to be playing a role in the revitalization of our downtown. Our entire Drunken Fish team is ready and fully committed to providing a paramount dining experience in a sophisticated and fun atmosphere.”
The new tenants join the list of business the Cardinals have announced, which include Cardinals Nation, described as a bar-restaurant and Hall of Fame museum, and the Budweiser Brew House, a restaurant and beer garden. Both will be located alongside Clark Street. Other venues include Ballpark Village Live! Marketplace and PBR St. Louis: A Cowboy Bar.
Ballpark Village is expected to open by Opening Day 2014.
