About Us

When they finished the Old St. Charles Waterworks building back in 1920, the city planners aimed to improve the quality of life by providing running water to every home and business in the county.  When the Moonshine Blues Bar took over the building in 2013, we came in with a different “water of life” in mind.

Today, we’ve transitioned from pumping high quality H2O to providing the highest quality spirits and music that’ll fill your soul. The Moonshine Blues Bar is proud to offer over 125 different whiskeys, ranging from 23 year old bourbons to moonshine straight from the still. Whatever your whiskey druthers, we’ve got something to satisfy your itch; from Bonded, Single Barrel & Small Batch rarities to Canadian, Irish, Scotch, & Rye!

Our hand picked staff is made of the most knowledgable bar barons that you’ll find this side of the Mississippi, and are happy to direct you towards one of our dozens of craft beers, a classic cocktail, or to throw out the rule book and build a drink specifically for you.

We’ve embraced the rustic concrete of our history home and added soft lights, reclaimed wood, and bright, hand painted murals in order to create that classic blues atmosphere. At the Moonshine Blues Bar, we believe music should be a full body experience, that music isn’t just something you hear, but something that resonates in your very spirit. We’re committed to providing not only the best drinks, but the best blues, soul, rockabilly, and swing musicians the country has to offer. We can make all the claims in the world, but it’s all hearsay until you swing by the Moonshine Blues Bar and find out for yourself.
