New to The Improv Shop? Let us help you plan your visit!

With a full kitchen, a stocked bar and a spacious patio, there’s plenty to do before and after shows. If you’ve never been to our St. Louis space, here are a few helpful tips to make your experience as awesome as it can be.

1. Pick Your Show

We have shows at 8PM on Mondays and Thursdays, and at 8PM and 10PM on Fridays and Saturdays. With a wide variety of formats – including sketch, improvisation, stand-up, and more – there is sure to be a show to your liking. You can peruse our current line-up and purchase advance tickets by clicking here!

2. Where to Park

Our St. Louis venue is located at 3960 Chouteau in The Grove, nestled snugly behind White Castle. Free parking is available in our dedicated lot East of our building, and doors open at 6PM.

3. Order Food

Feel like grabbing a pre-show bite? We’ve got you covered! In case you didn’t know, we’re a full-service restaurant – and we’re not talking about your average bar food. Our resident chef takes great care to create dishes that are flavorful and fresh. Take a spin through our dining menu to check out our current offerings. Cocktail service is also available during shows on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

4. Pick Up Your Tickets

Once 7PM hits, you can pick up your tickets at our Box Office. The Box Office is located past the bar on the left. The Box Office attendant will be able to assist you and answer any questions you may have. If you didn’t order tickets in advance, no worries! Tickets are available for purchase in-person at the Box Office as well.

5. Enjoy the Show

Our first set of shows begin at 8PM. Seating is open, so feel free to choose an area of your liking. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, order a drink during the show from our cocktail staff. Sometimes performers may ask for a suggestion from the audience. If you feel inspired, offer up a response! If that’s not your cup of tea, simply sit back and enjoy the show. Shows typically last around an hour.

6. Have a Nightcap

Just because the show ends, doesn’t mean the night is over. Enjoy a nightcap at the bar, cozy up in one of our lounge areas or settle down by the fire pit on our patio. If you do choose to call it a night, we hope to see you again soon!
