The Canopy is a rooftop cocktail bar located in The Birchwood Hotel in downtown St. Pete. I was told that I must visit by at least two other bartenders working at other bars in my downtown St. Petersburg cocktail bar list.
I am guessing local bartenders love The Canopy because of their service industry night and happy hour. Their hospitality day (must show proof) is all day on Sunday and includes half off all food and drink. The Canopy’s Hospitality Day and happy hour is also available at the Birch & Vine’s Lantern Lane Lounge. Happy Hour at the Canopy is from 4PM till 7PM Monday thru Friday with $3 house wine, well drinks, and domestic bottles and a few $6 happy hour small plates.
Food at The Canopy is a good value with of a wide variety of “bar bites” priced from $4 to $16. The Canopy has a few signature cocktails on the refreshing side as well as their “Canopy Classics: Birchwood Old Fashion and Blueberry Thyme Collins.”
If you’re hanging out with friends and plan on eating and drinking, you may consider renting one of their 4 cabanas. There is no rental fee but there is a minimum food and beverage requirement of about $50 to $100 per hour depending on when you want the cabana.
