The folks behind some of St. Pete's best bars are opening a new concept that will surely boast one of the most scenic waterfront views in all of The Burg.'
is a new restaurant that will open adjacent to the St. Pete Pier and the St. Petersburg Museum of History at 600 2nd Ave. NE—a space that was most recently occupied by craft beer spot Hops and Props.
This upcoming concept will be a combination of open-air and indoor seating, since its name is a homage to the 20th century developer Perry Snell, who’s known for revitalizing several St. Pete neighborhoods with his unique approach to architecture, nature, and walkability.
Perry’s Porch will offer a menu chock full of fresh and local flavors when it debuts in the summer of 2023.
Construction will begin early next year.
