"The experience of this three-story powerhouse eludes easy descriptions. It’s part bar, part restaurant, part cigar club, part co-working space, part event venue, part lounge, part bottle shop and part ping pong oasis. Owner Kevin Brennan has an impressive ability to envision what his customers want before they know it themselves, which has helped the business stay vibrant since its inception in 2003." - Amy De La Hunt, Alive Mag (April 2017)

"If entering through a dimly lit, marble-clad foyer and up a wrought iron staircase (the likes of which Willy Loman would have dutifully climbed to sales meetings) doesn’t inspire curiosity, check your pulse. Just about every space at Brennan’s is inspired, but The BHIVE is a mastery of eclecticism: romantic and cool, retro and modern." - Maggie Pearson, Sauce Magazine (Sept. 2016)

"Brennan’s Wine and Tobacco interior is an eclectic curation of premium leisure experience. Modern design classics are juxtaposed with raw materials, fashion and iconic objects of contemporary culture. Natural surfaces and raw materials reminiscent of a Havana cigar lounge are paired with techni-color Warhol-esqe imagery seamlessly flowing through a turn-of-the-century Central West End building." - St. Louis Homes Mag (Oct. 2016)

"Brennan's wine and cigar bar has enjoyed unparalleled status as the Central West End's best place to while an evening. Perhaps this unwavering popularity is due to Brennan's constant desire to reinvent itself and come up with great ways to keep guests happy." - Kylah Brown, St. Louis Mag (June 2011)

"Scotch, cigars, wine, original cocktails, cheese and other tasties combine into three floors of great nightlife. This is one of our favorite stops in the city." - St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Feb. 2010)

"Back before the speakeasy trend ever even percolated, much less dominated the world's bar scene, The Maryland House at Brennan's in St. Louis was specializing in clandestine cocktails." -

"Brennan's has achieved must-go status among St. Louisans." - Riverfront Times

"If St. Louis is one of your summer travel destinations, stop by Brennan’s—whatever you’re in the mood for, we bet you can find it here!" -

"Hundreds of wines, more than 50 beers and a large selection of liquors are the reasons to visit Brennan’s. If you’re feeling competitive, challenge your friends to a chess match or a ping pong battle. We love the speakeasy feel of the inside, but if it’s a gorgeous night the patio is great, too." - Olio City

"An exclusive dual natured shared workspace, THE BHIVE caters to both creatives and entrepreneurs. Located in the Central West End of Saint Louis, THE BHIVE sets itself as a daily private work space and by night it opens itself to the public where it sets as a bar, restaurant as well as lounge. Work by day, party by night!" - (Jan. 2017)
