We are excited to announce the rebirth and reinvention of Tempus (tem·​pus – ˈtempəs), noun, latin meaning “time”.

Located in the heart of the popular Grove neighborhood in St. Louis, MO – Tempus is a beautifully designed space that patrons describe as “luxurious, yet cozy”.

New in 2022 – Tempus is now available for private parties and will also feature ticketed pop-up events as well as enlightened dining experiences.

At the helm of this new culinary journey is the husband and wife duo, Vito and Amy Racanelli, with over 20 years experience in the industry.

What makes Tempus so unique?


Our one-of-a-kind pop-up events, rich with storytelling and culinary history, feature local food + beverage artisans as well as culinary collaborations with celebrated and renowned local chefs. Read more
