Former St. Louis Blues player Brett Hull will open a restaurant in Wentzville in October

The term “sports bar” is taking on an elevated meaning with a new concept, Brett Hull’s Junction House, slated to open in October in Wentzville. 

St. Louis Blues veteran Brett Hull, who retired from the hockey team in 2005, has partnered with co-owner Keith Horneker to help bring this new idea to life. Located at 1311 Lodora Drive, the spot is a part of an 18-acre developmental area in Wentzville commonly referred to as The Junction. 

Horneker is excited to offer a unique atmosphere for Wentzville residents. “[It’s] somewhere that you can have a good night out with your friends, but also have date night or take your family to,” he said. 

The concept combines traditional sports bar cuisine with an upscale twist. The menu includes staples such as burgers and flatbreads, but also offers pastas, steaks and more. “Things you typically would not go to a sports bar and order,” Horneker said. 

Brett Hull plans to frequent the restaurant and attend the grand opening, though the exact date has not been confirmed. The inside will be decorated with pictures, jerseys and other Brett Hull memorabilia. The nearly 10,000-square-foot establishment has a main restaurant area that seats about 180, an outdoor patio that seats about 160, and an open-air rooftop that seats an additional 120. Any portion of the restaurant will be available to rent for events.

“Our vision was to redefine casual sports dining,” Horneker said. “It's something we needed in Wentzville.”
