Please visit us at STLMINDFUL to possibly obtain a discount.

11 min walk to Busch Stadium.

Reassuringly expensive, but before you choose "that other cheaper place", you may want to see our reviews.

The space
STRICTLY NO LOUD PARTIES (this suite is beneath a 24-hour urgent care center).

FAMILIES PREFERRED (because they make much less noise).

THE MANCAVE IS NOT INTENDED TO THOSE WHO LIVE WITHIN 50 MILES

If you really need to have a loud party, please see our other spaces at the STLMINDFUL website, especially if you're wondering about discounts and the such.

Please note that the building has a Loud Noise Ordnance of 11pm every night of the week. If you plan to be noisy, this may not be the place for you.

8 full mattresses on 4 full bunk beds, plus 2 queen sofa sleepers.

A place to be together with your group, for mindfulness and relaxation. For fun and togetherness.

Book with the confidence that your stay will be even better than multiple hotel rooms, both in terms of price and quality. Your large group will thank you for finding this listing.

If we're more expensive than the other places you're looking at, it's simply because we're better.

We know what we're doing and we know how to look after our guests, as our reviews show. We are acutely aware that too many hosts are not familiar with the concept of 'guest service'.

We are proud to report that we have many return groups, since we began operations in 2016, usually at the same time every year.

If you're new to Airbnb, this booking will make you a fan. Rest assured that we will make your stay as comfortable as we would want it if we were the guests!

The space is designed with a 'manly man' theme, but without the inebriation and philandering that might be associated with that!

To clarify however, we do not (and legally cannot) supply alcohol in ‘The Mancave’ but you can certainly bring your own - just don't let it get out of hand please!

There is a grocery store on the same block (Schnucks) in order for you to stock the dry bar and the refrigerator!

'The Mancave' is designed for folks who want to live in a barracks-like adult 'camp'. It's ideal for a group of friends who'd rather not spend $200/night each on a cramped hotel room, and who'd rather hang out together in one big fun space, rather than have to always go out to expensive restaurants and bars. There is a dry-bar area as well as a kitchen, and you can stock both by going to the grocery store (Schnucks) across the street (literally 50 yards away).

This is a spacious basement with many things to do including:
• Foosball, Pool table
• 75" LED Smart TV with Roku
• High Speed Internet
• Refrigerators with front water and ice-dispenser
• Microwave
• Regular range with oven
• Coffeepot, Toaster

Pop over to the Schnucks grocery store (on the same block as The Mancave) and make yourself a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen.

Sleeping Arrangements (Up to 20 guests can stay in The Mancave):
4 full-over-full-size bunk-beds (i.e. 8 full-size mattresses)
2 queen-size sofa-beds (with spare bedding provided)

Let us know well in advance if you need a Pack'N'Play for a small child, and we'll make it happen.

The Bathrooms (There are two 'locker rooms', one designated for women and one for men, but those are just labels!):

The 'Women's locker room' includes 2 private showers, 2 private toilets, and a dressing area (with hair-dryers) for make-up and all that other stuff that the girls do (this paragraph is written by a man).

The 'Men's locker room' isn't as pretty but it's fully operational for stormtroopers, just like a Death Star; it includes 3 communal "rugby showers" separated just by curtains; there's 1 urinal, and 1 private toilet.

Obviously, your group can decide who uses what locker room etc. but towel fights and rump-slapping are somewhat frowned upon. It is also great for hanging out with friends while practicing social distancing and being safe for one another. Always remember to be safe.

Negatives from previous guests:
1. There is a LOUD NOISE rule of 11pm, because there's a 24/7 urgent care right above your ceiling.
2. You don't have control over your own thermostat, so sometimes it can get a bit too warm. However, there are plenty of fans, plus a wall AC unit at the north end of the suite.

Where you’ll be

St. Louis, Missouri, United States

This is quite probably the best spot to stay in Downtown St. Louis. You're close to everything. You've got all the creature comforts (aka amenities) that you need. Many guests spend more time in the Mancave than they do visiting other places. To us, that's awesome, but please go look at the City too!

The vibes from the locals are one of the great things about this amazing neighborhood!

I'm an emergency physician, internist, urgent care operator, wannabe author and repeatedly failing entrepreneur. Most of all though, I am immensely grateful for everything around me in this accidental universe. I say failing because I believe it's the only way to succeed, and also because it makes the winning even sweeter when it happens. I meditate, travel, do TaeKwonDo and listen to audiobooks. I aim to focus on catering well to my guests, just like I believe it's important to focus on my patients. I have been hosting teams for meditation and mindfulness at my suites since June 2016 and have been so fortunate to have an overwhelming demand from Day 1, with guests from around the world. They can be left to their own devices (meaning no interference from me or my people in the form of guided meditation, acupuncture, yoga and all that new age mumbo-jumbo) or they can use our services. Either way, the goal is for you and your group to have a rejuvenating and team-bonding experience, whether it's just 2 of you or 20 of you! My job is to ensure that your visit surpasses your expectations. I also love hosting guests that are new to meditation and mindfulness. I founded Downtown Urgent Care (located at 916 Olive Street, in Downtown Saint Louis) in March 2009. The mindfulness 'holosuites' that I host are part of Downtown Health & Wellness ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) and it's my passion to prevent disease, as well as help cure disease and manage trauma. I'm vegetarian and I live in the present, taking nothing for granted. I look forward to hosting you during your stay in Saint Louis.

During your stay

The Mancave is a carefully crafted space for gathering and mindfulness in The Downtown Health & Wellness building. It's also part of the private city residence of Dr. & Mrs. Saggar. You can do your own thing and we'll leave you alone, or you can use our additional suggested services, such as massage, yoga, group meditation and acupuncture - just ask about them once your booking is confirmed and we'll send you a link with details, pricing and so on. No hard sell. Only book services if you want them.

I (Sonny) and/or my associates (Laura, Pam, Jimmy) are 100% reachable 24/7 to answer any questions you may have, to make you feel comfortable getting in and out of the city, and to provide you with a smooth check-in/check-out experience.

Our goal is to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible and frankly, that you'll wish to recommend The Mancave to other good people!

We love Downtown St. Louis and we love to show it off. It's our goal that you have a fabulous stay here.

This space is an allocated meditation suite, being part of Downtown Health & Wellness. Although you may have an unguided meditation stay, please ask your host about registering your group for a guided meditation. Or just meditate on your own - it really does wonders for your mind and body. OK, perhaps that wasn’t really a Mancavey comment...
