In a way, the main Maplewood drag feels like a jump back in time. It was one of St. Louis’ first suburbs, predominantly built in the early 20th century, and many of the homes, buildings and signs are original. The only difference is those shops are now filled with innovative restaurants and boundary-pushing artisans, not to mention a hidden bowling alley and two of the country’s best craft breweries.
