The Wet Spot, a new pool bar, coming soon to the Grand Central District

The Wet Spot Pool Bar in the Grand Central District of St. Pete has received final signatures on the physical pool construction — and digging will soon officially begin.

Cocktail St. Pete immediately made a splash on Central Avenue. The vibrant bar owned and operated by David Fischer, who many will know from Zazoo’d and The Saint, opened in time for St. Pete Pride this year, and has become a must visit destination in the neighborhood. Soon, a brand new swimming pool, and 3-sided bar will join the block. Welcome to The Wet Spot.


The owners of Cocktail recently announced that plans had been approved.

The Wet Spot Pool Bar cools off the Grand Central District

“COCKtail is very soon going to have a baby brother The Wet Spot and we are grinning,” wrote the Cocktail St. Pete team on October 4.

The outdoor space will include a large 3 sided bar, a live music cabana, a large swimming pool, men’s and women’s restrooms, and ample space to enjoy the sun.

The Wet Spot will also serve food, though an official menu is pending.

Here’s a bit of background on Cocktail St. Pete, just in case you haven’t visited yet:

Owner David Fischer, who also operates The Saint and Zazoo’d, may be one of the most assiduous designers and small business owners in the Sunshine City.
