Downtown St. Pete Gets Its' First 24-Hour Diner
UPDATE MAY 16, 2017: BUSINESS IS CLOSED.
Ken Collazo, the owner of Fuego Lounge, just shut down the restaurant on Saturday, February 4th to start renovations to open his 24-hour diner in the same space.
Diner 24 DTSP is expected to open in late-March. They will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with over 200 items on the menu, and you can order breakfast, lunch, or dinner anytime you want.
The space will be redesigned to look like a retro, art deco, 1960s diner with neon and chrome. There will be ice cream sundaes, milkshakes, waffles, pancakes, eggs, burgers, etc.
A few other food items will include; shepherd's pie, steaks, chops, fish & chips, chicken wings, and much more.
Grab & go muffins, bagels and sandwiches will be available for those on the run. There will be a juice bar, coffee bar, espresso ... and a full liquor bar serving until 3:00 am.
Think 60s Diner Meets Oxford Exchange
Since the space is so large with a second floor and different rooms, Diner 24 DTSP will also have similarities to Oxford Exchange in Tampa.
There will be two large meeting rooms upstairs currently dubbed "The Boardroom" where you can have lunch meetings while showing PowerPoint presentations, for example.
There's a separate room downstairs that will be designated a "quiet room" where you can read, work, or study.
The location, across from Williams Park, has been experiencing a slow, but steady "clean-up". The closing of the bus stop, increased police presence, and even other new businesses opening, like The Galley around the corner, has helped spruce up the neighborhood. There is also a new restaurant buildout happening on the corner where the Krispy Chicken place used to be.
St. Petersburg Foodies eagerly awaits the new 24-hour diner, and there will be another one coming later this year that you can see currently under renovations at 2nd Avenue North and 2nd Street North aptly named "2nd & Second", which you can read about on iLovetheBurg.com here.
