Not a big place, but plenty of seating on benches or couches if no room at the bar. Classic decor and love the buffalo head. Nielsen, our bartender, was great. The complexity of the drink making was top notch. If you are a mixologist this place is for you. Not for college spring break kids who only want a beer. We had 4 unique drinks of their menu which were great. Pricing was appropriate to a little on high end. Only complaint...music was too loud. Definite recommend.

I live in St. Pete for about half of the year. I spend the rest of the year travelling. This might be the best cocktail bar in the world and that's not hyperbole. I usually drink wine and beer because most cocktails are too sweet and filled with trash liquor. Not here. I can't even find a bad liquor on their shelves--and I've looked.

Tonight--and this is just one example--I decided to try “Choose Your Own Adventure” - “let the bartender guide you to a personalized bespoke cocktail.” Market Price.

He made this: Corazón Anejo Tequila, Lime, Lapsang Souchong Smoked Tea syrup, Jalepeño with “Mango Caviar,” Worm Salt (sea salt with mezcal worm—he said the worm is optional, but recommended) served with rum soaked semi-frozen grapes. FYI: He made the syrup. $10

I could go on and on with the exotic ingredients, but instead I'll give you the best tip ever: Go on a Tuesday for the Test Kitchen. $6 each. They often have to find or make their own ingredients for this.

Finally:
1. Do not order beer or wine here (and this from a beer and wine drinker).
2. Anyone that rates this less than 5 dots is a hillbilly rube. Sorry, not sorry.

We had wonderful, inventive cocktails by an engaging, personable mixologist who crafted an amazing off-the-cuff cocktail for my friend’s wife. The on-menu items are a,so interesting.

Dangerous environment in the back patio area. Numerous slip and falls have happened in this establishment couldn’t care less. Not a safe place. Too many other wonderful businesses to chose from- especially ones that value their patrons.
Chooses elsewhere. This is coming from a local.

If you're only going to 1 bar in Downtown St. Pete (sad, if that's the case-please don't only go to 1) this has got to be it!

The Mandarin Hide is almost too easy to pass, its dark and on a busy little side of the street so you have to look for it.The drink list is mesmerizing, enough options to push you out of your comfort zone but it probably has your go-to as well (the best version of it you'll ever have). I recommend going on a weeknight if you can, specifically Tuesday. Each night has it's own special. They list ALL the information online, which is super helpful.

As if this place couldn't get any better..the prices are fantastic. It's pricier, sure but not like most high end craft cocktail bars. You can get a wild, life changing fantastical, strong drink for 10 bucks!

Great DJ mixing. Music was a fusion of 1980s as the under beat and 2019 music as the main. Great great great spot. Under the stars in st Pete’s.

Drinks take a few extra minutes to make, but are well worth it. They really take the time to know what kind of drink you want and don't dissapoint.

The kind of bar that other bars would like to be. Extremely knowledgeable bartenders and a wide range of drink options. Good value with special offer nights and sometimes excellent live music too.

Absolutely one of the best bars/cocktail lounges I have been to. Very authentic in every way. Went on a Tuesday when they have special cocktail creations at discounted prices. Would return many times to explore all the creative options.

We were lucky to be here late afternoon before the crowds. Enjoyed the bartender and assortment of drinks. Nice ambience along fun Central Avenue.
