This summer, Moxy St. Pete opens as the new social hub of the city. Featuring 163 guestrooms and suites, the hotel lies in the EDGE District on St. Pete’s Central Avenue. Central Avenue extends into the hotel with a bright and playful lobby adorned with mid-century modern design and laid-back Florida beach décor.


Through the lobby lies Rose’s Coffee Bar, an elevated coffee shop serving espresso-based beverages, cold brew, nitro and drip coffee from La Colombe Coffee Roasters. Rose’s Coffee Bar serves breakfast, lunch, snacks and smoothies. This location marks the second Rose’s Coffee Bar, following its first location in Fort Lauderdale.


Moxy St. Pete also features a podcast studio in the lobby and flexible meeting space complete with shuffleboard floors. Guests also have access to a 24/7 fitness center with Peloton bikes and more.


Guestrooms and suites boast plush beds, rain showers and balconies, with each featuring floor-to-ceiling windows. Vibrant artwork and thoughtful amenities round out accommodations.


Additionally, Moxy St. Pete will soon be home to the neighborhood’s first rooftop destination. Situated on the seventh floor, a pool surrounded by cabanas greets guests, as well as open-bar Sip ‘n Dip serving cocktails and handheld favorites.


This fall, Sparrow graces the hotel, spanning 4,000 square feet as a fun-filled hideaway. In the day, Sparrow will serve as a spot for grabbing a bite beneath the sun. Come night, Sparrow transforms into a premiere nightlife destination featuring Asian-inspired cuisine, craft cocktails and sleek décor.
