When Norwood Court residents want to get their groove on, they have several dance and nightclub options within a few miles of their homes.
If you want to dance the night away, head to the Pepper Lounge downtown. This place mixes up rap, EDM and other dance music in an energetic atmosphere. Sip on cocktails in between sets, and be prepared to get close to others; the dance floor here is small.
Although Norwood Court residents can dine in corporate
chain restaurants such as Applebee's and Chili's, the area surrounding the quiet neighborhood includes several independent restaurant operators that offer a diverse array of cuisines. Highly rated Ruiz Mexican Restaurant blows away chain Mexican restaurant cuisine by creating authentic dishes that incorporate fresh spices and vegetables. Try the jalapeno frijole dip for starters before diving into a sizzling hot plate of spicy sausage fajitas. This affordable Mexican restaurant overflows with customers on the weekends, which means Norwood Court residents should arrive early to secure tables.
Located just a few minutes away from Norwood Court, Lombardo's Restaurant serves Italian specialties that are surprisingly affordable. The first time you visit the iconic St. Louis County restaurant, try the linguine Lombardo with a glass of house chianti. Peking Chop Suey on Old Halls Ferry has earned critical praise for its crisp egg rolls that burst with flavor.
