Bar enthusiasts Andy Foerstel and Melissa Pfeiffer opened Intoxicology this month because they were frustrated – they couldn’t find all their bar supplies in one convenient location. “St. Louis’ cocktail culture is absolutely phenomenal,” Foerstel says. Why don’t we have a place that has it all under one roof?”
Intoxicology is now that place: The bar-supply shop in The Grove offers everything from spirits and bitters to barware, vintage glassware and cocktail books, with a focus on artisan products rather than big-box brands.
The nearly 1,600-square-foot space is also available for tastings, classes and private events. Foerstel hails from local favorite K. Hall Designs, while Pfeiffer has 23 years of bartending experience at CJ Muggs in Webster Groves, Missouri. “I think [the store] will be a great addition to an already wonderful community of cocktail-lovers and talented folks,” Foerstel says.
