For some additional travel inspiration, here are some ways your clients can start dreaming about their next trip to St. Pete/Clearwater. Elevate your cocktail hour with these rooftop bars throughout St. Pete/Clearwater.  Head to any of these hot-spots to enjoy a drink or two with panoramic views that include sunsets over America’s best beaches, picture-perfect Bayfront backdrops and silhouettes of the St. Pete skyline:


360 Rooftop Lounge:  craft cocktails and a stunning St. Pete Beach sunset from the top floor of the fully restored Mediterranean style Hotel Zamora;

Jimmy’s Crow’s Nest:  Voted ‘Best Rooftop Bar’ in St. Pete/Clearwater, this waterfront spot at Pier House 60 Hotel overlooks the action of Clearwater Beach;

Pier Teaki:  this hot spot will be atop the new St Pete Pier structure (opening soon) with stellar views of Tampa Bay

Hi-Fi Rooftop Bar:  The Original Fenway Hotel speakeasy was in the basement, but this rooftop bar has one of the best views in all of Dunedin.  Take in the historic Fenway architecture along with views across the Intracoastal Waterway and over to Caladesi Island


If you want to take advantage of a bar with a view that also serves food or small bites, here are some suggestions:

The Hurricane Seafood Restaurant:  one of the most breathtaking sunset views in the area is at historic Pass-A-Grille and the Hurricane’s truly legendary rooftop deck. Try famous grouper sandwiches with a cocktail.

The Canopy Rooftop Lounge:  The top floor of the Birchwood Hotel serves light fare and martinis with amazing views of the St. Pete skyline.  Cosy up in a private cabana and watch the colourful sky as the sun goes down.

Level 11 Rooftop Lounge:  Sunset views overlooking white sands of St. Pete Beach at Grand Plaza Hotel, open daily from 5pm–1am, this classy take on the rooftop experience offers small bites too.

The Dewey Beach Bar & Grille:  The newest spot on this list, it’s a gorgeous rooftop bar offering gentle sea breezes and views of the sunset from charming Pass-A-Grille.  Sitting atop The Berkeley Beach Club, enjoy three different gathering areas and a menu of elevated ‘beach cuisine’


Finally, the team wanted to share a list of beach FAQ’s in response to recent questions. From what watersports are available to which beaches are the quietest, the answers to these and many more questions can be found HERE.


Looking forward to Brighter Days Ahead.
