Harry' Bar

I'm not talking about Hemmingway's favorite watering hole in Venice. This one is located on 22nd Street south of Market. The St. Louis Harry's is painted pink on the outside, and, when the sun is hitting it just right, it could pass for a swank South Beach nightclub. Having seen some of the management loitering outside the entrance, one of my co-workers, a hiphopper with street smarts, suspects the joint may be mobbed up. The irony of his assumption, he points out, is that Harry's is located directly across the street from the new St. Louis field office of the FBI.

There goes the neighborhood.
