Rooftop Respite at LEVEL 11 Artisan Bistro Bar

It’s been a busy time here at the Grand Plaza. Guests and locals alike now have a new place to drink in the city’s skyline, and some handcrafted cocktails too.

And so, we proudly introduce St. Pete Beach’s highest lounge,

With a focus on hand-crafted cocktails and artisan-inspired cuisine, LEVEL 11 is an idyllic place to enjoy incredible sweeping views of St. Pete Beach, flavorful drinks and shareable plates. Open daily from 3pm to 2am, food is served until 11pm. And, parking is free.

What makes our new rooftop lounge particularly exciting is the unique sensory experience of capturing limitless views, refreshing breezes and feeling the pulsating vibe of St. Pete Beach—especially after the sun goes down and the city lights twinkle.

Our new eleventh-floor space has an upscale tranquil vibe and boasts a full bar with a light fare menu. A variety of social plates like the Charcuterie & Cheese Board overflowing with fantastic meats and cheeses are just right for sharing, while items like the Key Lime Shrimp Ceviche or the West Indies Filet Skewer pack a palatable punch.

Handcrafted cocktails include a Rosemary Lavender Lemonade, an Elderflower Vodka Spritzer and fans of martinis and Moscow mules may find our Muletini particularly satisfying. And, local craft beers can also be found on the new drink menu.

Built upon the hotel’s existing penthouse roof, the new outdoor area is decked out with cushy sofas and chairs along with plenty of comfortable table seating, all bordered by a transparent railing so as not to obstruct the ah-mazing views. Umbrellas provide cool shade before sunset and mood lighting at night.

All architectural and design aspects from color palette and accessories to the positioning of the furniture was meticulously planned. Inspired by the natural beauty of our coastline, the décor embraces light neutral shades and blue-green hues are homage to the gulf.

 “LEVEL 11 is an exquisite addition to our already remarkable collection of dining choices at our resort properties,” said Roxann Vasalakis, president of Excel Hospitality, Inc. “Our new open-air bistro bar is a top attraction for guests and locals seeking beautiful coastal ambiance and delectable innovative cuisine. We are proud to add this incredible outlet to our resort.”

LEVEL 11 is the perfect place to begin and end a night you’ll never forget.
