Okay so I've only been here for the drinks so far (hence why it's listed under cocktails) but it's because they're just that good! No seriously this is my favorite place to get a cocktail in St. Petersburg and it's for a couple of reasons:
- They change their cocktail menu every few months (still always have the usuals, but the specials change). Why every few months? That's the best part. They base it off of the exhibit being featured at the Dali Museum!
- Every single cocktail I've had here (and trust me, I've tried A LOT) I've loved. Every. Single. One.
- The bartenders make the cocktail menu themselves, making it one of the most original and delicious cocktail menus I've come across.
Here's the full menu and current cocktail list.
Atmosphere: Located right above Locale Market in SunDial, it really is ideal if you're just in the downtown area or waiting to catch a movie. It's an open area with a u-shaped steel-topped bar in the middle that has those led wire lights wrapped around the upper bar. Quite cute. They also use the cut (and obviously sanded down) wine bottle bottoms for water glasses. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a spot at the bar depending on the time of day but for the most part I'm able to find a spot easily.
Happy Hour/Deals: They have Happy Hour from 5pm-7pm on weekdays and after 5pm on Sundays with different drink specials and the occasional free wine or champagne tasting so I'd follow them on Facebook or Instagram to stay up to date. They also have #WineWednesday where it's half off for a bottle of wine and a build your own Bloody Mary on Sundays!
Tips: If you're lucky you can catch the bartenders making the new cocktail list a week or two before the exhibit changes at Dali. They like to get customer feedback (obviously) so you might be able to get a free drink and help make the new menu! They usually do it during happy hour too!
