The Barton Happy Hour

The Barton Happy Hour

The Barton clubroom is the place to be this Thursday, May 17! Residents, future residents and guests are invited to mingle with neighbors from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Refreshments and small bites will be served.

The Barton is located just west of the Clayton downtown business district and across from the shops and restaurants of Ladue Crossing. The apartment community takes “dog friendly” to a whole new level, with a dedicated dog park for its lucky four-legged residents. When further adventure beckons, the Greenway Trail is just steps away. (You can’t miss it…it’s just a few steps from the heated saltwater pool.)

Thoughtfully built to take advantage of its corner lot, The Barton’s entrance is an expanse of pavers, reminiscent of a European motor court. A dramatic two-story lobby portends the spacious feeling of the apartments, where ten-foot ceilings, eight-foot doorways and wide hallways let every resident live large. Heated bathroom floors turn a too-early morning into an “ahhhh” moment while you catch your favorite morning news show on the 19” in-mirror TV.

Community Manager Julia Garcia  says The Barton was designed to be close-knit and friendly. “We’ve had a few social events already, and many more planned for the summer, so everyone can get to know one another!” The Barton keeps its residents in the loop with a YouTube channel (“The Barton Buzz”) so no one misses any big news. And when you’re ready to toast with new friends? Just retrieve your favorite vintage from the climate-controlled personal wine storage room.

An oversized tiled shower and in-mirror TV add to the lux mood at The Barton, recently open in Clayton. Fine finishes and thoughtful details are evident throughout every apartment at The Barton.
