Karma After Hours brings Puerto Rican inspired dishes to the EDGE District

smith and associates

Karma After Hours is a brand new concept from the owners of Karma Juice Bar, and it’s set to soft open at 1113 Central Avenue in St. Pete on March 5. 

Karma After Hours is a new sit-down concept inside Baum Avenue Market at 1113 Central Avenue. Under the guidance of Chef Jerome, the restaurant serves up an exquisite array of Puerto Rican and Filipino favorites.

“Chef Jerome has created rustic Puerto Rican inspired dishes that are unique, yet familiar, with all dishes being under $28,” wrote the Karma owners on Facebook. “And the best part- almost all dishes are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and TONS of Vegan options! There are even Keto choices, as well.”

This menu is set to rotate seasonally so the items for this season will not be available next season.

A few items you need to try on your visit include:

Brussels: Mushroom chicharron, sofrito, ajilimójili (GF, V, K)

Mofongo: House caldo, cuerito

Adobo Balls: Adobo chicken, sweet chili verde

Mussels: Grilled bread, chorizo, charred corn, cotija (DF)

Karma After Hours joins with the concept’s brand new cocktail bar, which will also be available after 5pm.

Bright, buoyant cocktails served in funky, tiki-style glasses add a bit of flair to the EDGE District’s newest drink hub.

Let’s start with the Palawan Punch. The cocktail is made with Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Aperol, Bacardi Silver, fresh squeezed lime juice, guava juice, orgeat, and mango pineapple juice. It is an absolute kick to your taste buds, but the sweet infusion of mango and pineapple transforms it into a tropical delight.

The Lychee Tini was a favorite among staff. House lychee infused vodka and vermouth are mixed  together, and the cocktail is garnished with lychee. It’s a nutritious indulgence.

The hours for Karma After Hours will be as follows:
Tuesday: 5pm-10pm
Wednesday: 5pm-10pm
Thursday: 5pm-10pm
Friday: 5pm-12am
Saturday: 5pm-12am
Sunday: 5pm-10pm
