Marriott St. Louis Grand is excited to co-sponsor the Blues, Bourbon, and Beer event with the National Blues Museum on Thursday, February 22, 2024. Hosted by Marriott St. Louis Grand at 800 Washington Avenue, the event is an opportunity to enjoy soulful blues music and savor hors d’oeuvres, crafted bourbon, and local beer. It is taking place in the registered landmark Statler Ballroom, the former lobby of the historic Statler Hotel that opened in 1917.

The event starts at 6 pm, with live blues music from 6:30 pm to 10 pm by well-known St. Louis-area vocalist Charles “Skeet” Rodgers and his musicians. Robert Nelson from the National Blues Museum is the host and emcee for the evening.

Attendees can sip on a selection of carefully crafted bourbons known for their rich flavors and smoothness, including the hotel’s custom Maker’s Mark® 1917 Grand Reserve, and taste a variety of local and international brews. Delicious bites from the Grand’s own kitchen will complement the drinks, music, and overall experience.

Tickets are $25 each, and 200 are available. Each includes the blues performance, passed hors d’oeuvres, and one drink per person. Ticket holders will have a $5 valet or complimentary self-parking if they park at the Grand. To get tickets for the Blues, Bourbon, and Beer event, go to
