World's Largest Man-Made Moon

The rooftop bar provides great drinks and beautiful views of the city!

[Mike Gassmann, 09/30/2017]


World's Largest Man-Made Moon

The Moonrise Hotel, in a St. Louis arts and culture district known for its quirky vibe, has a rooftop lounge with a rotating Moon. As the moon turns, a slight hollow noise can be heard, which adds to the magical lunar atmosphere. The hotel has several mini-exhibits of space-themed memorabilia in the lobby, and even the bathrooms have space art!

You don't have to be a guest at the Moonrise to take a trip to the moon -- a quick elevator to the rooftop will do. It's really a nice view of the city (we were eager to get some city views since the Arch was closed during the government shutdown).

[Lakita, 10/20/2013]

The hotel, built by space collector Joe Edwards, is proud of its World's Largest Man-Made Moon title. Its decor includes signed photos of every Apollo astronaut who walked on or orbited the moon.
