But one word w e w o u l d n ’ t c h o o s e i s “ k i t s c h y. ” W h i l e i t ’s t r u e that a buffalo head looms on the wall near the entrance, this is not a shop centered on mounted wildlife. Instead, it will have you stocking up on accent pieces and seasonal decorations for every room in your home—and planning ahead for new furniture from the selection of tables, chairs,

sofas,

and

more.

W ith its mix of restaurants, craft breweries and bars, downtown Edwardsville stays active well into the evening. Even so, the Stagger Inn is in a class by itself. With its 2:30 a.m. closing time on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the old-school bar is a gathering spot for all ages thanks to its live music, friendly staff and generous drink prices—and the burgers a n d f r i e s u n t i l 2 a . m . o n w e e k e n d s d o n ’t h u r t e i t h e r. The long wooden bar and checkerboard floor are throwbacks to another era. But instead of quietly fading away under the mounds of history contained within its walls, the bar and grill is vividly alive, with regulars gathering at all hours and for all reasons, including live music several times a week and every weekend. The menu is quintessential bar food, made with deep pride. The fries are from real potatoes; the burgers are pattied by hand from freshg r o u n d h a m b u r g e r. D e e p - f r i e d p i c k l e s a n d o n i o n rings are hand-battered. Its signature sandwich, T h e S n y d e r, i s p a c k e d w i t h h a m , r o a s t b e e f , brick cheese and mayo on a fresh-baked Kaiser roll.

Edwardsville is a complex combination of old and n e w. A s t h e t h i r d - o l d e s t c i t y i n I l l i n o i s — i t w a s established around 1812, six years before Illinois b e c a m e a s t a t e — i t ’s j u s t i f i a b l y p r o u d o f i t s h e r i t a g e . B u t i t ’s a l s o a n i n c r e a s i n g l y a t t r a c t i v e o p t i o n f o r homebuyers looking for a relatively low cost of living and easy commute into St. Louis. There are both challenges and synergies to this growth. A case in point: The W ildey Theatre, which closed as a full-time movie theater in 1984 and was later a c q u i r e d a n d r e n o v a t e d b y t h e c i t y. N o w t h e 1 9 0 9 opera house hosts national touring bands as well as local artists from Erin Bode to the Jeremiah Johnson B a n d — a n d i t o ff e r s $ 2 Tu e s d a y s c re e n i n g s o f c l a s s i c s like “Breakfast at T iffany's” and “Hocus Pocus.” I n a d d i t i o n t o t h e 3 2 5 - s e a t t h e a t e r, t h e W i l d e y features two floors of special event spaces. The smaller second-floor room was originally an i n t i m a t e t h e a t e r, w h i l e t h e t h i r d f l o o r — d e s i g n e d as a meeting hall for the Independent Order of Oddfellows—is a beautifully restored ballroom, complete with hardwood floors and a ceiling dome. Both spaces are popular for community events and rentals like yoga sessions, corporate meetings, daddy-daughter dances and weddings.
