Opened in late December, founded by two St. Pete natives and advocates –
The Galley has brought new life and success to a pivotal downtown area
The Galley is donating a portion of proceeds from opening events to Tampa Bay Watch
- PETERSBURG, Fla. (January 24, 2016) — After a not-so-soft “soft opening” around the holidays, immediate popularity of The Galley – “a St. Pete Tavern” – seems to have firmed up a spot within the fabric, the buzz, the redevelopment, and the commerce of the downtown St. Petersburg community.
“New Year celebrations brought together not only a full house, but a range of generations,” co-owner Ian Taylor proudly said. “Lunches and happy hours include community and business leaders, long-time sages of the neighborhood, young professionals, students, and many other neighbors, friends, and out-of-town visitors. We’re thrilled and fortunate to see the mix.”
On January 27 & 28, The Galley will celebrate its official grand opening with many friends from the community, the St. Pete Chamber, the City of St. Pete, friends of Williams Park, and many more.
January 27 @ 4:45pm – Ribbon Cutting Celebration with the St. Petersburg Chamber
January 27 & 28 – Food & drink specials, live music all weekend, giveaways, kitchen open late
A portion of proceeds from the two-day event will be donated to Tampa Bay Watch. “The Galley aims to reflect and support core elements of our community – the waterfront and estuary are key to Bay life,” said co-owner Pete Boland, “Tampa Bay (the body of water) binds us here together, we love our waterfront, it’s a big part of why we’re here – we want to contribute to help protect it.”
Located at 27 Fourth Street North, The Galley is a street-cross from Williams Park, the open-air post-office, and Snell Arcade. Nearby are several notable developments both underway and planned.
