Frequently Asked Questions

Street parking is subject to St Petersburg's downtown rules, much of it being 2 hour parking, which is well monitored on Rays Game days. Metered parking has not yet made its way to 18th Street and street signs should be read and followed. There is an area under the bridge that offers parking via the parkmobile app. The downtown trolley looper does stop off right at the Hideaway Cafe (on the southwest corner heading TOWARDS downtown and on the northeast corner heading AWAY from downtown) so if you have a preferred parking garage or lot anywhere off Central Ave, this is a great option. We highly recommend taking an Uber/Lyft/Cab so you can be worry free for your visit! More information on parking options downtown.

Open Mic is indefinitely on hold as we navigate through this pandemic. Now every Thursday night, Betty Fox can be found on stage.

Yes!  While music is our main passion, food is our second.  We strive to bring you fresh, delicious eats to accompany your visit to our listening room, while keeping the menu simple enough that it doesn't steal the focus.  We offer our finely crafted thin crust pizzas, flatbreads, hot grilled sandwiches and salads as well as delicious homemade apps and desserts to round out your night.  See our menus below and be sure to check the calendar or join our mailing list.

Music is at the core of everything we do, so currently, the bar/restaurant is only open to complement the music on the stage.  The Hideaway Cafe is St Petersburg's Original Listening Room and we pride ourselves on providing a space for music lovers and music makers to share their passion, uninterrupted by your typical bar scene.  That being said, if there is a show, we offer up the finest wine and craft beer along with a simple yet delectable menu to make your stay with us a complete experience.  We are currently open with limited capacity on the following days: Every Wednesday - Kid Royal Band (Doors @ 6.  Show @ 7:30); Every Thursday - Betty Fox Band (Doors @ 6.  Music @ 7:30.); Every Friday - Kirk Adams Band (Doors 6. Music @ 8.); Every Saturday Day: #SaturdaySidewalkSeries (Doors @ 2.  Show @ 3); Every Saturday Evening: ticketed shows (Doors @ 6. Show @ 8.). And keep your eyes open for select Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays for special shows (see event details for door/show times)
