Pelican Pub re-opens today in St. Petersburg

The first phase of the Jannus Landing overhaul makes its public debut today when the newly remodeled Pelican Pub stages its re-opening. The interior of the longtime downtown watering hole, located next door to the Jannus courtyard entrance at First Avenue and Second Street N., was gutted and rebuilt from the ground up. Certain features are the same — the bar, the exposed brick walls — but the crusty old restrooms have been upgraded to nice, six brand new flat-screen HD TVs are scattered throughout, and a new state-of-the-art multi-media sound system will, according to the press release, "pump in endless music and videos."

And even though it's been elevated from its dive bar status, the pub will still offer generous drink prices on premium well offerings; 3 Olives Vodka, Bacardi, Captain Morgan, Johnny Walker Red, Crown Royal, Jagermeister and others are regularly priced at $5.50.

The Pelican Pub re-opens at 4 p.m. with a 2-for-1 happy hour until 7 p.m.
