Mandarin Hide is definitely one of the best cocktail bars in St. Petersburg. The Hide is a speakeasy themed cocktail bar located on the Central Avenue Block in downtown St. Pete and if you’re not looking for it, you will walk right past. I actually walked past the bar two different times and didn’t even notice it and the 2nd time I was actually looking for it. I guess you can say that the third time’s the charm when I finally realized that the Hide is hidden in plain sight.

Mandarin Hide’s Happy Hour which is actually called Violet Hour is Wednesday to Friday from 4:30PM to 8PM featuring a list of $5 classic cocktails.

Mandarin Hide’s daily drink features are as follows:

  • Test Kitchen Tuesday with $6 themed cocktails of the week
  • Wine and Whiskey Wednesday with $6 glasses of wine and $6 whiskey cocktails
  • $5 Moscow Mules on Thursday with Live Jazz
  • $5 coffee cocktails on Friday and Saturday till 8PM

If you want to consider this cocktail bar listing a review, I give both Drew the bartender and Mandarin Hide a rating of 5 stars.
