Features of Urban

Augusta Block
Behind the bar you’ll notice Augusta Blocks. These originally were on the streets of St. Petersburg when the city was first developed. As time went on the blocks were covered with asphalt, but some original streets still remain – 19th St. N and Central for example. When the city performs road construction, many times the Augusta Blocks are discarded with used asphalt and that’s where Urban was able to save and preserve these 100+ year old pavers that are synonymous with old St. Pete.

Penny Floors
When the time is right you can visit our bathrooms and check out the floors that are tiled in pennies. The men’s bathroom is laid in two different patterns, rows and field, and all of the pennies are head’s up. Since the president on the penny is Abraham Lincoln, they are all pointed south.

The women’s bathroom has pennies that are all tails up and laid in a diamond pattern. This effect was created by hand selecting pennies by their patina. Also, the diamond in front of the commode is made up of all wheat pennies (pennies that were manufactured before 1958).

There are over 5000 pennies on each floor that were laid and glued individually. An epoxy was then laid over the top to seal everything in place. Combined the two floors took over 30 hours to complete.

Annual Mugs
Urban is striving to revive the community/tavern type atmosphere that was prevalent 100+ years ago and one of the ways it is doing that is by creating the Annual Mug Club. Members pay a one-time fee that allows them to drink for free for the rest of the year. Ask your server for details and availability.

Tap Handles
You’ll notice there aren’t typical tap handles on the towers, only black shorties with numbers. This was done with the purpose of improving the craft beer drinking experience. At Urban we want you to enjoy the beer much more for the style or locality than how cool the brewer’s brand looks.

Craft Beer Lineup
There are a couple of parameters for our board. No brewery can have more than one tap, there has to be a fair representation of styles, and nothing can cost more than $7.

Half Pours
At Urban you have the option to choose a half pour instead of a full in case that’s all you want, or you want to try multiple beers but don’t want to get too full.


Features of Mural on Central

On the opposite wall of the bar you’ll notice a 30′ mural of buildings that used to be on Central Ave. in the late 1800’s to the 1920’s. The portraits of the buildings are historically accurate and created from photos from the historical archive. The addresses of the buildings weren’t recorded with the photographs so we’re not exactly sure where the buildings were located or if they’re still standing – do you know?

We wanted to tell a story with our mural and provide something are district can be proud of for years to come. Beyond being a beautiful work of art, there’s also meaning behind everything placed in the mural.

Palm Trees
The palm trees represent Vinoy Park and the rich history there as well as the essence of St. Petersburg. A reminder of how the city has progressed and developed over the years.

Augusta Blocks
If you been in Urban or the Beer Garden then you’ve probably noticed the Augusta Blocks. Since they are central to Urban’s theme it was only right that they were prominent in the mural.

Train
Urban is in the Grand Central District and so as a nod to its community, a train was used. The train represents Urban itself and is bursting onto the scene of St. Petersburg with an explosion. There are two numbers on the train, 611 and 62709. The 611 stands for June 11th, the day Urban opened in 2013. The 62709 stands for the owner and his wife’s wedding anniversary.

Breweries
During the latter half of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 four breweries opened in St. Petersburg, all within 2 miles from each other. These are the first four breweries in St. Petersburg ever and it was thought important enough to memorialize it on the mural by using different symbols. They’re easy to see if you look.

Features of Beer Garden

Florida is blessed with beautiful weather and we wanted to be able to provide our patrons with a way to enjoy it in an Urban way. There are no TV’s or individual tables, only five large picnic style tables because a traditional beer garden is a place for people to socialize with their neighbors and community.

Planter Boxes
All of the plants in the beer garden are native to Florida. In addition, all of the plants in the planter box are edible. Depending on the time of year you can see chili’s and peppers growing.

Augusta Blocks
There are approximately 1200 blocks that were individually split long-ways and laid on the ground in the garden. The cutting alone took 100 hours. The goal was to make it appear that it was an old St. Pete street that had been there since the beginning of the 19th century.

Barrels
There are two barrels in the beer garden, one from Cycle Brewery and one from Three Daughters. These are barrels that were actually used in brewing beer.
