Best Midnight in Paris-inspired night out: Mandarin Hide

Ray Biscoglia on piano, Glenn Stevenson on upright bass at Mandarin Hide on Wednesday evenings.

It’s the most legitimate jazz jam session you’ll find in downtown St. Petersburg on a Wednesday night. Local notables like guitarist Nate Najar and bassist Glenn Stevenson play as part of the regular group, with pianist Ray Biscoglia. Bartenders mix up some classic and inspired cocktails, like the Moscow Mule, the Blue Moon or a perfect Manhattan. Sip classic drinks under low lights and take five.
