Update: It went back to being a sleazy storefront.
After wasting away as a sleazy storefront, the northeast corner of Cherokee and Jefferson is coming back to life, with a sensitive facade restoration and renovation. Surely the newly revealed sign will remain.

Any known history on this polka dot lounge?
I’m told the up stairs once had a four lane bowling alley? Any idea if it still exists? If so, who could I contact for a tour?
I don’t know who owns it, unfortunately. It was originally a Wehrenberg theater.
Drove past this location the other day…despite the renovation…it’s once again a crappy storefront. Very disappointing.
My sentiments as well. Particularly don’t like the “we unlock cellphones” sign out front.
There’s a “Flo’s Poke-a-Dot Lounge” in Kansas City, Mo. Have to wonder if Flo got tired of the decline of Cherokee in the ’70s and moved down there to re-open. Nice to see the kind of renewal that’s going on in Old South St. Louis. My band played in town last summer at Blank Space and did an ‘in-store’ at Dead Wax last Saturday. Love your town.
