Acropolis Greek Taverna’s downtown St. Petersburg location has permanently closed. The closure was announced on social media on Monday.
The restaurant and bar offered Greek fare, a full liquor bar and hookahs to downtown patrons for 12 years. It had been operating as recently as Saturday. On Thursday, the doors were locked and the interior had been stripped of most of the furniture.
According to its website, the restaurant’s locations in South Tampa, Ybor City, New Tampa and Riverview are still open. The St. Pete location was removed from the website.
The social media post featured a photo of a sign that read, “Sorry we are closed,” and said that “due to unforeseen circumstances we are closed and no longer exist at 515 Central Ave. N.”
“We don’t say goodbye, we say see you later! Hopefully very soon,” the post continued. “We will keep you updated about our new location, remodeling and any news!”
This is a developing story. Stay tuned for updates.
