B B's Jazz, Blues and Soups
700 S. Broadway
BB's Jazz, Blues and
Soups is St. Louis' Premiere Blues house. The 700 South Broadway building which
houses BB's was known as Phil's Hotel as late as 1969 and has a colorful past.
Since its original construction in the mid 1800's, in an area then known as "Frenchtown" with a further 3 story addition at the turn of the century, the location has been used as a home, boarding house, reception hall, merchantile, millinery, transient hotel, bar, diner, and a House of Ill Repute with 37 rooms between its 2nd and 3rd floors.
