Bishop Lounge to become Yard of Ale

On Friday, I Love the 'Burg reported that the downstairs area (formerly Bishop Lounge) is undergoing construction to become Yard of Ale, a craft beer bar that originated in South Tampa.


"That's right, the rumors are true and the plans are drawn up," Yard of Ale DTSP posted on its Facebook on Friday. "Thanks to the team of owners from MacDintons Irish Pub, Yard of Ale will be the newest addition to the Downtown St.Pete community in just a few weeks! We don't want to give away too many details but we will be tearing down a portion of the building at our location to make room for a great outdoor patio space."

Bishop Tavern & Lounge, home to one of the most well-known ladies night specials, has new ownership.

According to their Facebook page, the owners of MacDinton's Irish Pub teamed up to expand another South Tampa watering hole into Downtown St. Petersburg. Friday, the upstairs bar and nightclub became 260 First.

"Staff will be the same," said VIP manager Kelsey Hale. "It will be bar and nightclub. We will have more parties and more events."
