ST. LOUIS  (KMOV.com) – Just south of Downtown you can find live music of almost all genres, from blues to jazz to rock n roll, but now there’s a new spot for country music lovers.

Game 6 Honky Tonk Joint opened Friday night on 4th Street. The brothers behind the bar grew up in the Lake of the Ozarks and have experience with honky tonks in Nashville and they realized there was a need in St. Louis.

“St. Louis is the Blues and we’re not taking that away but underneath that there’s a current of country music lovers and live music lovers and we happened to be a spot with a lot of live music, and we know how to do it,” said Ryan Binkley, one of the co-owners.

Ryan, along with his brother Jeremy hope to fill a need for not only country music fans, but musicians, giving them a place to play.

Jeremy Binkley was the general manager at Paradise Park in Nashville, a popular honky tonk.

Game 6 is located just blocks from Busch Stadium at Gratiot and 4th and takes it’s name from a night familiar to all Cardinals fans.

“The name Game 6 is the 2011 World Series, all cardinal fans in St. Louis and around the region know that, with excitement and memories, we can all galvanize around that, so we wanted to pay homage to that and add that excitement every single night with live country music,” said Binkley.

The bar has two rooms, with a stage in one and the main bar in the other. They’ll serve lunch and dinner. To start they will be open Wednesday – Saturday, 11:00am-1:00am. When baseball season starts, they’ll be open during all Cardinals games.
