This is my favorite watering hole in St. Pete! The view is spectacular and the atmostphere is lively! They have live music as well as top hits. Be sure to get a cabana to beat the sun until it sets. Bring your camera phone!

Great views of Vinod Basin and downtown St. Pete. Excellent small plates. Best place to show off downtown to visitors. Great atmosphere and drink selection. Small plates and great seating areas and cabanas with glass bead fire pits (in the winter).

Fun space to hang with friends or have a drink and watch the sunset. Also a fun spot for New Years Eve.
