George and Kris Hansford opened the first Trainwreck Saloon in Rock Hill, Missouri, July 2, 1982. Dating back to 1890; the Trainwreck in Rock Hill is considered to be the oldest continually operated tavern in St. Louis County. Upon its opening, great care was taken to restore and preserve the structure. The original back bar is still in use today. In 1992, a caboose was added to the Beer Garden. In 1995, an innovative bar was built in and the caboose, making Rock Hill's Beer Garden one of the most unique patios in St. Louis. After surviving a flood in 2009, a dining room was added, adding seats for year round dining.
The Trainwreck Rock Hill continues to be the definitive neighborhood tavern.
A second Trainwreck Saloon opened April 1, 1991 at West Port Plaza. Opened originally in 1973 as Burnham's Opera House, many elements remain. The 1902 antique bar, swinging door and much of the current decor, including pictures, stained glass and booths are from the original Opera House. The West Port location has expanded three times, acquiring a florist, t-shirt shop and the Victorian House, a men's clothing store. These changes have included an expanded kitchen and dining area, a large stage for live music and a second antique bar.
The Trainwreck Saloon at West Port Plaza continues to be a popular destination for lunch, dinner, happy hour and live music.
