Construction begins on Par Bar, an 18-hole mini golf course + cocktail bar, in St. Petersburg

An argyle mural, and a large empty lot that will become a putt putt course

A putt putt course with a cocktail bar? Yes please. The concept was initially announced in early 2020. Teaser videos posted on Par Bar’s social platforms reveal the beginnings of a marvelous, and potentially tough course.

We also greatly appreciate the argyle mural on the exterior of the covered bar.

This will also offer the opportunity to let downtown residents get their putt putt on without having to head to the beaches.

The concept from Marcel Gruber and Kurt Campagna just received its permits and construction has officially begun today (Oct. 30).

Food trucks could be a fixture at the concept, to pair with the planned 10 taps and array of frozen adult beverages. The course will be family-friendly during the day at least.

Fingers are crossed for a near impossible Clown Hole.

Par Barr is located 2253 1st Avenue South. Follow the concept on Facebook and Instagram for updates.

An official opening timeline is still TBA.
