In search of a better life, Pete and Sofia Panopoulos with their 3 sons, Lou 10, Trifon 9, and Jim 3, left Greece and arrived in the U.S. on September 6, 1966.
Pete found a job at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel as a banquet waiter while Sofia worked as a seamstress at a downtown factory. The boys not only went to school but also worked odd jobs to help support the family once they were teens.
Trifon eventually became a manager in the restaurant business. After several years of long hours working for someone else, he decided to open his own place. Trifon partnered with Chris Dubis. Together the partners remodeled and opened Missouri Bar and Grille on February 14,1983. A few years after the original opening of the bar, Trifon became sole owner updating the name to "The NEW Missouri Bar & Grille”. Being located near the Post Dispatch and other thriving downtown businesses,The New Missouri Bar & Grille became a popular watering hole for reporters, newsmen and local bigwigs as well as many "average joes" of St. Louis.
Trifon spent his days doing all that he could to please his customers by treating every person as though they were part of his family. Before too long, the bar known as "The New Missouri Bar & Grille” became affectionately known to all who patronize it as "MoBar". It is without a doubt that Trifon's huge heart was the reason MoBar became his second home and the second home of many more St. Louisans.
To our old and new friends alike , WELCOME BACK! With the love of our brother we welcome you to our "MO BAR" family.

The Des Lee Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Two Sides of a 45: Lisha Bai, J. Michael Deane, and Jane Fox Hipple. The works of these featured artists are tethered to each other loosely through geometry and a straightforward manipulation of materials and images. All three artists are alumni of Washington University in St. Louis, and are currently based across the country.
Two Sides of a 45 is a purposefully misleading title, as there are not just two different perspectives represented. An interesting dialogue is created when the work of one artist is placed within proximity of another artist’s work, especially when the artists are not expressively explicit in their content. For instance, when Deane’s work is juxtaposed against Bai’s, it can prompt a different “read” than when it is viewed next to Hipple’s work. The title poetically references a 45 rpm vinyl record, a 45° degree angle, and a .45 caliber pistol.
Gallery hours for this exhibition will be Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 1-6pm and by appointment.
Bai earned her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis in 2001 and her MFA from Yale University in 2004.

She has exhibited work in a variety of venues, including the National Academy, Smith-Stewart at Krut Projects, Regina Rex, and fordPROJECT (all New York); Jolie Laide (Philadelphia); and Franklin Art Works (Minneapolis).
