Holiday celebrations are right around the corner. The holidays mean the busy season for us at SqWires – working longer and harder and serving more creative and classic meals. We will be closed December 24th and the 25th and will reopen on Friday the 26th. All through December, the kitchen will turn out the quintessential tastes of the season with dishes and drinks accented with jewel bright pomegranate and sweet juicy clementines that bring verve and zing to celebrations. A perfect way to start the holiday season is with the Lafayette Square Holiday Parlour Tour December 14 – Ten Victorian homes dressed up for visitors. Tickets here at SqWires or at 314 772-5724.

Make your reservations for New Years Eve at SqWires – Dinner and music by Falling Martins in the restaurant. Drinks and appetizers in the Front Room Lounge. All accompanied by a crackling fire for a warm and welcoming New Year.

Any way you slice it, our small portions on Tuesday night SqWare Plates are perfect to share and savor $5 each or 5 for $20.

Celebrate Champagne Day on Wednesdays with half price bottle of wine with your entree. The brut rose Fleur sparkler is a celebration all its own.

It’s never too early to gather the family for the perfect dinner. Thursday night family style fried chicken dinner with all the sides – creamy whipped potatoes and gravy, old fashioned green beans, mac’n cheese, slaw, biscuits. You might even save room to celebrate Apple Pie Day and order our caramel apple pie with ice cream.

Oysters are called food of the gods and this unique culinary experience is in high season this month. Come in Friday 5-7pm for icy cold fresh shucked oysters and chilled steamed shrimp. Just $1 each.

Ho Ho Ho (you know what’s coming next) it’s “Happy Hours” 4-7pm Tuesday thru Friday featuring great prices on beer, wine, appetizers. Give yourself a little treat before the big celebrations begin.

Maple Syrup Day is this month and we feature the luscious liquid at Saturday and Sunday Brunch – think buckwheat or buttermilk pancakes and English toast – yum. The never-ending Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar is a better way to “warm up” than a holiday sweater – and an invitation to brunch is guaranteed to bring smiles to all those on your list. 8am-3pm

What are the holidays without music – SqWires brings you the sounds of St. Louis musicians Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights and Sunday brunch.
