LADUE > Restaurant gets OK to upgrade beer garden * The City Council voted Tuesday to allow Schneithorst's Restaurant & Bar at 1600 South Lindbergh Boulevard to upgrade the outdoor beer garden on its clock tower terrace.

At a public hearing, Allen Roehrig, a principal with Mainline Group Architecture, said the current beer garden, atop the main restaurant, had been operating since 1995. Plans are to replace a deteriorating A-frame wooden canopy structure with two glass-and- steel canopies, as well as to add six frosted-white globe lights and a festoon-style strings of lights, a living wall of plants, small banners/Bavarian flags on the lower canopy, and other improvements.

A speaker system would be replaced by modern sound-contained equipment for a new TV.

Roehrig said the upgrades were meant to make maintenance of the area easier and to allow customers to stay in the beer garden during inclement weather. The area is to have climate controls, such as heating and fans. Improvement work is set to start within the next month or two, city officials said. (Special to the Post-Dispatch)

The issue surrounding the company's ability to continue its services in the city drew contentious crowds to several City Council meetings over the past several months, with many speaking out in favor of the business, which has occupied a building in the Old Webster section of the city since 1968. …
