Get your dog wet and your martini dry. Mutts and Martinis is a new dog waterpark and bar opening this spring at 2900 Central Avenue, offering playtime for dogs and dog parents alike.
The massive space in Grand Central has been under construction for some time, and signage has now gone up touting a spring opening for the unique concept. Ownership is calling Mutts and Martinis “Florida’s first dog waterpark and full liquor bar.”
While we wait for more details on what to expect, sneak peeks show a huge space (the building is the former Kings Transmissions), with two large rooms offering plenty of room for activities. Renderings also show an outdoor pool area with obstacles and toys, as well as covered seating areas.
Oasis Pavers and Pools is leading design and construction on the dog pool, as the celebrated local company turns its talents to canine structures. Their pool design will give dogs an easy spot to cool off and play in the water.
Mutts and Martinis is being opened by the same minds behind the two Love My Dog Resorts in St. Petersburg, the upscale dog daycare and boarding facilities, as well as Love My Dog Grooming and Boutique.
The new spot is opening in a very dog-friendly neighborhood, of course, as Grand Central, the Warehouse Arts District and Historic Kenwood are home not only to hundreds of dogs, but the Burg’s best dog parties and celebrations year-round. St. PetersBARK is a popular pet market just across the street, and Dog Bar has long been a staple in the neighborhood as a combo dog park and bar. The nearby and newly-opened Zoie’s, in fact, is named for the owner’s chihuahua.
Stay tune for more updates on Mutts and Martinis’ upcoming opening.
