A bank with a long, illustrious, and occasionally violent history is the perfect place, we thought, for a craft cocktail bar.

In the shadow of the St. Louis Arch, the Mississippi Valley Trust Company has proudly stood at the corner of 4th and Pine since 1896. While the city transformed around it, within these walls time stood still. Today we invite you back, to old-fashioned charm, timeless hospitality, and a modern twist. 

Trust is simultaneously Downtown St. Louis’s newest and oldest craft cocktail bar. Located in the bank’s beautifully restored main hall, Trust transports you back to the era of speakeasies, flappers, gangsters, and Prohibition-era cocktails.

Here at Trust, our beverage program stays true to our pre-prohibition era roots, with a contemporary twist and an emphasis on welcome, warmth, and human connection. The Artisan Well’s Noah PG and Rob Somerscales, two of the most innovative and charming cocktailers in the country, bring passion, genius, and a fresh take on classic cocktails. They take inspiration from the history of St. Louis and the colorful past of the Mississippi Valley Trust Company to create our revolving cocktail list.

More than welcoming faces, our team is serious about libations. We make all of our juices purees, syrups, tinctures and extracts by hand, and use them to create new takes on classics, as well as original creations. Not sure what you want? Just let our crew know and we will gladly customize a personal cocktail just for you. In addition to our revolving cocktail list we also have a local beer selection and eclectic wine list.
