With its center-of-it-all location, just steps from Tampa Bay, Art House offers effortless connection to all the attractions that rank St. Petersburg as one of the most celebrated and desirable waterfront urban addresses in the world.
Upon leaving the building, downtown’s rich tapestry of sophisticated dining, arts, nightlife, water sports, and year-round recreation unfurls in every direction.
World-class cultural destinations include the world-famous Salvador Dali Museum, Museum of History, St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts, Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum, James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art, the Chihuly Collection of glass art, and the impressive new Museum of American Arts & Crafts.
Performing arts venues abound, from year-round theater, arts and music festivals in the city’s waterfront parks to the historic Palladium Theater, and Mahaffey Theater/Duke Energy Center for the Arts, the city’s major performing arts center, presenting an all-star lineup of international headliners.
Take a leisurely bike ride to a waterfront restaurant or bar overlooking Tampa Bay at the exciting new St. Pete Pier. Shop the Saturday Farmer’s Market on the bayfront. Attend a gala opening night at the Dali Museum or Mahaffey Theater.
Take a tour of the city’s ever-changing lineup of murals. Catch a Brazilian jazz combo at the Palladium Theater’s intimate Side Door Cabaret. Dine on international cuisine or the fresh catch of the day at a café table outside the eclectic array of restaurants and bars lining Beach Drive and Central Avenue.
After soaking in another inspiring sunset over Tampa Bay, kick back under the stars to gaze up at Janet Echelman’s breathtaking “Bending Arc” net sculpture. Woven with 84 miles of twine in more than one million knots, the massive, lighted, 76-foot-high, 428-foot-wide sculpture billows in the evening breeze above a bayfront park as the lighting constantly changes colors overhead.
“In what other city can one leave home and step into so many world-class museums, cafés,
entertainment venues, and sporting events without ever getting into your car?
For walkers, St. Pete is truly a remarkable place to live.”
Bob Vail – President, Kolter Urban
