Best Basement Retreat: THE UNDERGROUND at MOSCATO’S BELLA CUCINA

Best Basement Retreat

Hidden beneath a Central Avenue Italian restaurant in downtown St. Pete is The Underground, a speakeasy-style jazz bar. Older generations of St. Pete residents marvel that the old Kress building, once a five-and-dime, has morphed into a bustling nighttime hub. Perfect for relaxing on vintage furniture under the glow of candles and live jazz, The Underground is truly the best basement in the bay. 475 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 727-322-4313, moscatosstpete.com
