Busch Stadium| Must Do

Visit Ballpark Village

Ballpark Village is located outside of the ballpark, behind center field. You’ll find plenty of food and drink options, as well as some shopping (including one of our favorites, Baseballism). The outdoor plaza recreates the original Busch II infield, so you’ll even have a chance to step on the same ground as some of the Cardinals greats. Inside, you’ll find options like FOX Sports Midwest Live!, which is a huge entertainment area very similar to Texas LIVE! at Globe Life Field.

Enjoy the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum

Before you head into the ballpark, stop by the Hall of Fame and Museum located in Ballpark Village. You’ll find tons of Cardinal relics and history including a championship gallery, a chance to hold a game used bat, and a section on the three different ballparks the Cards have called home. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and military, and $8 for kids.

Visit the Cardinals Greats

Just outside the ballpark on the North West corner (8th and Clark), you’ll find 10 statues of past Cardinal greats. They are: Rogers Hornsby, George Sisler, Bob Gibson, Stan Musial, Ozzie Smith, Dizzy Dean, Cool Papa Bell, Lou Brock, Red Schoendienst, and Enos Slaughter. Just around the corner, at the 3B gate, you’ll also find a larger statue of Musial at bat. This statue was moved from Busch II. Halfway between gate 4 and 5, you’ll also find a statue of the Cardinals great broadcaster Joe Buck.



Enjoy the Baseball Sky

Busch Stadium’s outfield view ranks pretty high up there. Since the park is situated in the city (as a ballpark should be!), you get amazing skyline views of the Arch and surrounding buildings, including the oddly circular Millennium Hotel Tower. Home plate faces South West, which usually means an amazing sunset view in the beautiful park. It’s hard to think of a better way to spend a summer evening.

Busch Stadium | Transportation and Parking

Busch Stadium is located in the heart of downtown St. Louis, which can make it a little difficult to get to if you haven’t been there before. Like most downtown grids, St. Louis consists of both two-way and one-way streets, so you’ll want to scope out your parking plan ahead of time to avoid confusion and stress. Luckily, you have plenty of parking and transportation options to choose from.

Official Busch Stadium Lots

There are no official parking lots at Busch Stadium.

Off-Site / Free Parking Options Near Busch Stadium

There are no official lots to be found, but you have plenty of parking options near the ballpark. Street parking: You can find free street parking near Busch Stadium if you get there early. You’ll see metered spaces, but they’re only in effect Monday – Saturday from 8am to 7pm. So if you can add enough time run the meter until 7pm, you’ll have a free spot for the remainder of the night. If you’re attending a Sunday game, no need to worry about meters at all.

Shuttles: Just a short ride away is the Soulard neighborhood, which has plenty of bars and restaurants. You can park free at most of those spots, then hop on their shuttle. Be sure to support the business helping you out by buying a beer or some food. Three such places are Llywelyn’s Pub, Duke’s, and Molly’s in Soulard, but there are many options.

If you are staying at one of the nearby hotels, they will also run shuttles to the ballpark, you just need to ask!

Public Transportation

MetroLink’s Stadium Station is a very short walk to Busch Stadium or Ballpark Village. You can take the MLB or MLR train depending on where you are coming from. Keep in mind that the Metro St Louis has several park-n-ride lots where you can park your car for free, then hop on the train into downtown. You also have a few bus options. The #40 Broadway bus and #99 Downtown Trolley each have stops near Busch.

Uber & Lyft

Lyft is the exclusive rideshare partner of the Cardinals. We think that means that their rideshare lots cannot be used by Uber. The official pickup zone is near Ballpark Village.

Since everyone else will be staring at Lyft signage all night, you may be better off walking a block or two and calling an Uber. If you’re new to Uber, you can use this link to get a discount on your first few rides.

Busch Stadium | Best Seats

Best Seats for Cardinals History

While you can’t technically sit there, the grassy knoll batter’s eye in center field is probably the most iconic section of Busch Stadium. Most baseball fans will remember a wild Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, where the St. Louis Cardinals battled back — down to their last strike…twice. David Freese’s walk off home run in the 11th inning of Game 6 landed in the grassy knoll, where an Illinois radiologist scrambled to grab it. Traditionally speaking, the folks sitting in either section to the left or right (bleacher sections 197 and 101) have been allowed to dash into the batter’s eye to grab home run balls.

Best Seats for Game Views

The Infield Redbird Club seats along each side of the infield offer great views at a decent price. Sections 241 – 246 and 254 – 257 get our pick for best game views. Keep in mind that Busch Stadium also has amazing outfield / cityscape views, so you may want to consider that when purchasing tickets. While we’ve never sat there personally, we have heard great things about the seats directly behind home plate, on any level.

Where not to Sit

Busch really doesn’t have any major obstructions. There will be a few views where you can’t see the scoreboards though. The worst game view obstructions come in the the first few rows of the upper sections, where the handrails are. If that’s an issue for you, consider moving down to the lower levels, or up a few rows so your line of site is above the rails.

Best Seats for Shade

If you’re looking for shade at a day game, you’ll want to avoid sitting in the bleachers, or near the field. The last few rows in most sections have overhangs that will protect you from direct sun. For mid-day games, your best bet will be to sit on the 1B side, as the sun will set by moving towards home plate.

Best Seats for Foul Balls

Looking to catch a foul ball at Busch Stadium? According to FoulBallz.com, your best bets are in sections 153 – 156 on the 3B side, and 141-146 on the 1B side.

Busch Stadium| Ballpark Food

The Must Have: The Pulled Pork Nachos

You’re in BBQ country, so embrace Country Bob’s BBQ. You’ll find house smoked pulled pork topped with Monterey Jack cheese, jalapenos, banana peppers, and special spices and BBQ Sauce. Head to Broadway BBQ in section 109.

Something Special: The Bratzel

Part bratwurst, part pretzel, all awesome. Find the pretzel wrapped Brats in sections 252 and 248 at the Red Bird Club stands.

The Challenge: The Grand Slam Mixed Grill

For the low price of $26, you’ll find 4 chicken bats (chicken legs slathered in sauce), 2 sausage bites, and a shrimp skewer. This feast is served in a box shaped like home plate and is big enough to feed a family, or just you if you’re up for the challenge. Find it in section 429 at the Terrace Grill

Vegetarian and Vegan Options at Busch Stadium

While Busch doesn’t have as many options for Vegans as some of the other parks, you’ll still be able to find a decent meal. Options include Stir Fry in sections 136 and 242. Busch also offers a Beyond Burger in sections 135 and 358, look for the Double Play Tap and Grill. The good news is, the Cardinals claim that their fries are vegan. And of course you can build your own salad at the Red Bird Club Cucina Italiano in section 250. Vegetarians can also enjoy pretzels (section 248), nachos, and cheese pizza (sections 139, 162, 250, 437).

Restaurants, bars, shops, and even the Cardinals Nation Museum and Hall of Fame.

A local favorite, known for its fun NOLA vibe and great seafood.

Bars and Restaurants

We believe that in order to fully experience a ballpark, you should spend some time in the nearby area. We’re also big believers that pre and post game rushes are awful. We suggest you spend some time at these local establishments instead of sitting in traffic or rushing to the train.

Ballpark Village | 601 Clark Ave, St. Louis, MO 63102 | Website
Ballpark Village is directly across the street from Busch and offers plenty of places for you to eat and drink before catching a game. If you’ve ever been to Texas Live! outside of Globe Life Field, or Live! at the Battery Atlanta around Truist Park – this is basically the same concept. Inside, you’ll find restaurants, bars, entertainment, sports gear shops, huge tv screens and the Cardinals Nation Museum and Hall of Fame.

Broadway Oyster Bar | 736 S Broadway, St. Louis, MO 63102 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
This place is a local favorite, known for its fun NOLA vibe and great seafood. B.O.B. has been around for 35 years and you just can’t find more traditional Cajun and Creole food anywhere in St. Louis. It’s about a 5 minute walk to Busch Stadium so it makes for a great pre or post game spot to hang out at.

Three Sixty | 1 S Broadway, St. Louis, MO 63102 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
If you’re only in the area for a night or two, this rooftop bar, located in the Hilton at The Ballpark, is a cool place to go to get a broad sense of downtown. As the name suggests, you’ll get 360 views of Busch Stadium, the Gateway Arch, the Mississippi river and surrounding St. Louis. They serve snacks, small plates, and pizzas so don’t expect to be super full when you leave but the views and drink selection are the main attraction.

The Midwestern | 900 Spruce St, St. Louis, MO 63102 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
The Midwestern is a modern sports bar just one block west of Busch Stadium, so naturally a great spot to pregame or wait for your ride afterwards. And their food is gooood, we like the brisket sandwich. You’re in Missouri, you have to have some BBQ, right?! They also have an awesome brunch menu if you’re heading to an early afternoon Cardinals game.

Local Attractions

If you’re traveling with a family or just trying to make the most out of your trip to the St. Louis area, here are some recommended nearby attractions.

The Hill | Website
The Hill is a cool old Italian-American neighborhood in the St. Louis area, filled with family-owned delis, bakeries, trattorias and pizzerias. It also used to be home to baseball greats, Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola. They both grew up in this neighborhood and their childhood homes are actually across the street from each other, on Elizabeth Avenue. It’s a great place to explore, eat and soak up a little baseball history as well.

Forest Park | Website
Located about 6 miles west of downtown St. Louis, this awesome park is a great way to spend a day, especially if you are traveling with the family. In it you’ll find the St. Louis Zoo, Missouri History Museum, a planetarium, a golf course, several small lakes, a fish hatchery, tons of historical monuments and landmarks, and lots of picnic areas.

City Museum | Website
If you ever wanted to relive your childhood, this is the place to do it. The City Museum has floors and floors of fun, from magic shows to caves you can explore, to vintage pinball and arcade games to a rooftop ferris wheel. The building is full of slides (one is 10 stories!) and oddities, guaranteed fun for kids and kids-at-heart. Trust us, you just gotta go! Tickets run $16-$22 plus tax, kids 2 and under are free.

FYI: City Museum is cashless, there is no re-entry and outside food and drinks are not permitted.
