Yesterday, King State, at 520 E Floribraska Ave. in Tampa Heights, said it would start serving a full liquor menu under the Ups-N-Downs banner (stylized "UPS-N-DOWNS")
"We've been working mad hard on this over the last year," King State wrote on social media.
The company is still waiting to receive its Certificate of Occupancy from the city before it can move to liquor service. And while there's no date on when the booze will start flowing, King State said, "it was time to talk about it."
Even under Ups-N-Downs, the space will still make King State's full coffee menu available through the evening.
Cocktails, which have yet to be detailed, will only be served during Ups-N-Downs' hours of operation, except on Saturdays and Sundays, where King State will start serving brunch-y cocktails like bloody marys at 9 a.m.
According to the post, "Grand opening party will be announced ASAP!"
