Frankie Martin’s Garden provides award-winning food trucks, curated wines, local craft beers and a library of over 200 whiskeys.

The 2.74-acre picnic park is made complete with pickleball courts, fire pits, and a sand volleyball court.

A 130-year-old on-site home was converted into a whiskey and wine bar named The House. Its classic character is elevated by added modern-flair fixtures for an inviting yet sophisticated dining spot.

Since its grand opening in July 2022, weekly events such as trivia nights, live music, and yoga are loved among garden goers. Golf cart parking was built in to make this a neighborhood gathering spot in the heart of Cottleville, Missouri and a destination where people from St. Louis and beyond can enjoy food, entertainment, and a family-friendly environment.

“One of my partners (Jeff Kolb) told me a long time ago when he was building 9 Mile Garden (in Affton) for Larry Chapman that we have to do one of these in St. Charles County. It’s awesome down there and out here it will go gang busters. We kept that in our memory bank and when the opportunity arose we decided to do it.”
