Whiskey Exchange, a stock market-themed cocktail bar, opening in St. Petersburg

A spirited concept called the Whiskey Exchange will open its doors Friday, September 18 at 4pm. Situated between Cycle Brewing and Bar 548 on the 500 Block of Central Avenue, this Stock Market themed bar/restaurant should further the ‘Burg’s craft cocktail boom.

The Whiskey Exchange began hiring a few months ago as the crew behind the whiskey bar put some TLC into beautifying the interior.

“Whiskey Exchange is a Stock Market Craft Cocktail Bar, that aims to build community by providing an unique experience serving drinks and food that bring people together and atmosphere that is a hub for local entertainment,” wrote the owners on the concept’s website. “Our approach to delivering only the finest service to our customers starts and ends with our constant desire to exceed expectations.”
