It doesn’t require passwords or secret handshakes, but stepping down into Subcentral, an underground speakeasy-style lounge below Portuguese fusion restaurant Iberian Rooster, provides an exclusive nightlife experience unmatched in downtown St. Pete.
At 475 Central Ave., the elegant lounge has nightly entertainment, ranging from local jazz to open-mic comedy to risque burlesque shows. In addition to craft cocktails and wine on tap, late night snacks, like savory Goan patties, are available from Iberian Rooster’s kitchen.
Open since November, the locale received national attention for its “Angel Shot” — a symbolic menu item designed to help women on unsafe dates.
