The third building of the same name in St. Louis, the latest installment is a throwback to the old days of baseball. Spectacular views of downtown, including the Gateway Arch beyond the center-field fence, plus the abundance of St. Louis-style fare (including ribs, fried ravioli and Budweiser, of course), leave no question that you're in St. Louis. The right-field foul pole of the old stadium is located in deep left-center. The stadium was home to a World Series champion in its first season.
