If there's one thing we know about Florida, it's that we have some of the best beaches for watching the sunset, but there are some other prime sunset viewing spots that you may not have known existed. The Grand Plaza Hotel on St. Pete Beach has a rooftop bar and a sky-high bistro that spins!
To get to this hidden gem, take the elevator at the hotel all the way up to Level 11 (on the 11th floor), where the views are unmatched as a setting sun splashes our skies in breathtaking colors. Grab a drink and snack on something small, or make dinner plans at Spinner's — the only revolving restaurant in The Bay.
The floor spins at 1 full revolution an hour, giving you a full 360-degree panoramic view in a single dining experience. There's not a single bad view in this place; keep that in mind if you're looking for a cute and romantic date idea.
Aside from the gorgeous views, they serve up some pretty delicious bites. Stop in for lunch, dinner, or simply munch on apps and sip on wine & cocktails while you get that breathtaking revolving view of St. Pete's beachy skyline.
Some of Spinner's menu options include Tuna Sashimi, Duck Quesadillas, burgers, pasta, steak and more. Their comprehensive lunch, dinner, and drinks menu is HUGE. Even if you decide to not eat at Spinner's, word is that Level 11's charcuterie board is a delicious work of art.
Nothing says paradise like the perfect light bite while you sip your cocktail in the sky.
Of course, the best time to go is when the sun is setting, but it's just as beautiful in broad daylight and after the sun goes down. Level 11 is open daily from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., and Spinner's Bistro is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily; reservations for the bistro are encouraged so you can save your sky-high seat.
An overview of Level 11 & Spinner's can be seen below. If you're looking for more cool places to check out in St. Pete, this trendy bar serves the wildest cannabidiol infused drinks, and this sinfully delicious eatery serves up boozy milkshakes and mac n cheese topped chicken sandwiches.
