Welcome to the Neighborhood: Cherokee Street

Decantery is proud to be a local & small business, and we especially love the area we work in. You’ll find us typing, developing, and optimizing away on Cherokee Street in the South City area of Saint Louis. Learn more about the neighborhood we call home!

La Calle Cherokee

Cherokee Street is well-known for its vibrant and diverse residents, many of whom are Hispanic. This gives the neighborhood an amazing variety of shops, restaurants, and businesses. Delicious, tacos with a generous margarita to wash them down? Stop by Tower Taco for some grub. Craving tres leches cake? Check out Diana’s Bakery for sweet treats.

A Little Bit of Everything

Cherokee has become a hub of small businesses, both in brick and mortar and other capacities. Some of the most beloved businesses on the street have had several iterations before landing on Cherokee. For instance, Whisk: A Sustainable Bakeshop started as a cupcake booth at the nearby Tower Grove Farmer’s Market before opening its storefront on Cherokee in 2012.

This stretch of several blocks also features Cherokee Antique Row—this corridor of the street has several storefronts with clothing, household decor, and more from decades past. Starting at Jefferson, take a stroll East along Cherokee to check out all these amazing shops, and find yourself at the world-famous Lemp Brewery.

While talking about Cherokee, we can’t skip over Nebula, Saint Louis’ first coworking space. Decantery calls this nearly decade-old space home! This unique location provides a location for independent contractors, small businesses, and “unconventionally employed” folks that create an incredible hub for work, meetings, and more.

Keepin’ it Clean

A new effort in the area aims to keep Cherokee street cleaner than ever. Nebula resident and office neighbors, EFS Energy, partnered up with Decantery, Nebula, and the Cherokee Street Community Improvement District to start a new event called Cherokee Street Trashy Hour. The purpose is to bring together community members, residents, and businesses for a quarterly evening where everyone walks up and down Cherokee Street, picking up any trash they see. Afterward, everyone unwinds and gets to know each other at a local business over drinks or dinner. Thus far, we’ve had two successful events, and we’re planning our third! If you’re in the neighborhood, or a fan of Cherokee Street, please like our Facebook Page to follow along, RSVP to future events, and more!

We hope you’ve learned a little bit more about our lovely neighborhood, and we encourage you visit very soon!
