Best Slightly Out-of-the-Way Cheap Drinks

Steve's Tavern

Everyone knows downtown St. Pete is blowin’ up, so much so that the action is starting to move west. Steve’s Tavern, better known as Steve’s Tav on the Ave. is on Central Avenue above MLK in an area that used to be called the Dome District. There’s still not a lot going on in the sector, but Steve’s is a terrific place to stop in and lube up early (or late), or if you’re a little light in the wallet, or just enjoy hanging out in a no-frills watering hole with friends. Because it’s down the beaten path a bit, it’s not mobbed like Mastry’s can be, but it is starting to draw a younger, hipper crowd. Bring a group, feed the jukebox, slap some pool balls around. Drinks are strong and affordable. 933 Central Ave., St. Petersburg.
