Folks associated with Jug & Bottle are opening La Setima Club natural wine bar in historic Ybor City on the corner of Nebraska and 7th Avenues. (La Setima means “The Seventh” keeping the Cigar City love flowing.)
Though the opening date is unclear, the Instagram account shows Jug & Bottle General Manager Ryan Fouche sitting in an empty shell with monthly updates in the “Sneak Peek” stories. Public records show an application in for Alcohol Beverage Sales (beer and wine only) for the site at 1724 N Nebraska Ave. with a 47-person occupancy load.
Records also show that the Barrio Latino Commission— responsible for “preserving the historic fabric of the District and maintaining its architectural integrity”—approved La Setima’s requests to restore, or replace, the original mostly-glass storefront.
Previous tenants at the address include a pool hall and Hargrove's Restaurant.
ICYMI, Jug is located at 6203 N Florida Ave., opened in 2015 and focuses on craft beers, unique wines and specialty foods–keeping a lot of its product local. It also is home to the yummy vegan spot 3 Dot Dash.
Creative Loafing Tampa Bay has reached out to Fouche who will provide more details after construction is finished.
