David Stine for Tiny Bar

Tiny Bar, St. Louis

Small but mighty, Aaron Perlut’s Tiny Bar is one of the best bars in St. Louis. At just 250 square feet, Tiny Bar packs a mighty punch, and we were thrilled to craft a custom bar top, bar shelves, and table for this landmark watering hole.

Aaron Perlut is a visionary. As the co-owner and co-founder of the St. Louis-based marketing agency Elasticity, Aaron has helped major brands tell their stories in spectacular, unconventional ways. And Tiny Bar is no exception. Who else but Aaron would take a wafer-thin lobby — just 250 square feet — and turn it into an amazing bar? You have to walk through Tiny Bar to get to the elevator that takes you up to Elasticity’s offices. Genius.

Dave Stine worked with Aaron to appoint the bar with the most beautiful wood he could find, in this case black walnut, sustainably harvested from our farm in Illinois. Dave crafted live-edge shelves, a live-edge bar top, and a slim two-top to nestle near the elevator. Creative geniuses, the both of them.
