The Scott St. Pete, a coffee and cocktail bar, opening in downtown St. Petersburg

smith and associates

A new craft coffee and classic cocktail bar is opening soon in downtown St. Petersburg inside the Cordova Inn. Built in 1921, the Cordova Inn offers the unique charm of a historic boutique bed and breakfast. The hotel was built in the Neoclassical Revival architecture style, a unique building type in St Petersburg, and is located just a few blocks from the St Pete Pier and many other downtown museums, restaurants, and attractions.

The Main Lobby can accommodate up to 16 guests and requires either a half night or full night buyout. Reservations are available 6 weeks before the date of the reservation.

Coffee from Hogg Batch is served at The Scott from 8am-11pm daily. Spirits are served from 4pm-11pm Wednesday through Sunday.

A classic cocktail spot in the heart of St. Pete

One cocktail, the Cordova Martini, is made with locally sourced ingredients that include Banyan Reserve Vodka, freshly pulled espresso shot featuring the signature Scott Coffee Blend, and coffee liqueur.

The Scott is also home to an amazing Old Fashion, a Cuban Mojito, and a Tom Collins.

The Scott St. Pete is located at 253 2nd Avenue North. An official opening timeline is still TBA.
