Kathy and Lui Arango ran Black Palm on the Pass-a-Grille end of St. Pete Beach for a number of years, building a reputation as a great place for Latin-inspired tapas and an even better place for wedding receptions and other nuptial-related gatherings. They closed that location in early in 2014 and promptly reopened in the historic Jungle Prada nightclub space. Finally the sprawling 9,000-square-foot building got the attention it deserved. Original terrazzo floors were uncovered and buffed, and the 1920s design elements were lovingly restored. There's a long, convivial bar with live music, plenty of private dining space, and enough architectural oddities that a walk around the dining room is an essential part of the dinner experience. The upscale menu is a long read composed of some Spanish dishes and a scattering of Mexican, Cuban and other Latin American offerings, many of them rarities in this part of town.

Hours: 5-10 p.m. Sun., and Tues.-Thur., until 11 p.m. Fri.-Sat. Valet: $5.
