Changes afoot at downtown St. Petersburg bars

ST. PETERSBURG — Changes are going on at the Jannus Live complex downtown. Yard of Ale beer pub will soon open in place of the Bishop Tavern and a club called 260 First is already hopping upstairs in the former Bishop Lounge. A fitting name since the address is 260 First St. N.

Both are owned by MacDinton's, which also operates in the Jannus complex. After a complete remodel, Yard of Ale, which already has a location in South Tampa, will open in about three months, according to Niko Alvertos, manager of 260 First. The Tampa store features more than 20 craft beers and import drafts on tap and 75 different kinds of bottled beers. It also boasts games such as Connect Four and Jenga.

The new upstairs club, 260 First, has a different DJ booth, new LED lights and more VIP seating. It will bring in recognized DJs from around the country, offer more top-shelf liquors and have ladies' nights with perks such as designer shoe giveaways.

A few blocks away at 149 First Ave. N, Durty Nelly's is closing, according to its Facebook page. Its last night, Saturday, will feature "green beer and shenanigans for all."

After a quick remodel, a country rock bar called The One Night Stand will open in its place the first week of May.

Katherine Snow Smith can be reached at (727) 893-8785 or kssmith@tampabay.com.
