Topgolf has broken ground on a new entertainment complex in Chesterfield, with construction set to begin soon on the Dallas-based company’s first Missouri location.

The three-story, 65,000-square-foot venue at 16851 N. Outer 40 Road is slated to open toward the end of 2018, the company said Tuesday.

Shake Shack to Open December 11 | 32 North Euclid Avenue

It’s finally happening…Shake Shack, the nationally beloved burger and frozen custard joint created by St. Louis native Danny Meyer, has officially announced Monday, December 11 as the opening day of its first-ever St. Louis location.

St. Louis’ Shake Shack will be located at 32 North Euclid Avenue in the Central West End. Doors will open at 11 a.m. that day.

“I learned the meaning and feeling of genuine hospitality while growing up in St. Louis, a lesson that has shaped my life and guided my career,” Meyer states in a press release. “When I jotted down the first Shake Shack menu, it was my favorite childhood food memories that most inspired me, and I’m thrilled that Shake Shack has at last found a home in my hometown.”

On top of the regular menu, the Central West End location will be serving special menu items made with ingredients from local purveyors, including the “Central West BLEND” (Park Avenue Coffee gooey butter cake with vanilla custard and salted caramel sauce), the Chocolate Chip cookie (a Winslow’s Home chocolate chip cookie with Askinosie dark chocolate chunks, salted carmel sauce and chocolate custard), the Mound City Double (a double provel cheeseburger with Niman Ranch bacon and “STL sauce”) and the Pie Oh My (Vanilla custard with a slice of seasonal pie from Pie Oh My!). A bonus: five percent of sales from the Pie Oh My concrete will be donated to Forest Park Forever.

The St. Louis location will include other local touches as well, such as Urban Chestnut, 4 Hands Brewing Co. and Schlafly beers being on the menu. In addition, two permanent art pieces created by local artists Noah MacMillan and Adam Koon will be on the exterior windows, while three vintage photos from the St. Louis Cardinals Archive will be on the walls. St. Louis woodworker David Stine also made two communal tables with local sustainably harvested walnut lumber as well for the Central West End Shake Shack.
