The Mess Around is all about social dancing to fantastic St. Louis music in cool venues throughout town, at a relaxed, even pace. You’ll enjoy funky landmarks like the City Museum, historic grandeur like the Lemp Mansion, and quintessential live music culture at Off Broadway. Our bands feature the diverse range of danceable jazz in St. Louis from Miss Jubilee’s swingin’ early blues, to Sweetie’s jump, to Tommy Halloran’s modernized swing, to the Arcadia’s vintage big band jazz. Plain and simple, for people who love dancing and jazz, this is a great hang.
