Mike's Tap and Tavern flows to downtown St. Pete

St. Petersburg

Mike's brings TVs, pizza, craft beer to downtown

You can't ask for much more than the combination of beer and pizza. But throwing in walls lined with TVs and 40 craft beers makes the classic pairing better. Mike's Tap and Tavern will offer all of the above when it opens in coming weeks at 169 First Ave. N. There are already locations of Mike's Pizza and Pub, part of the same company, in Clearwater and Largo. Those stores offer delivery and the St. Petersburg eatery is expected to as well.
