Bar

“In the heart of Siesta Village, this is a delightful choice for a more elegant dinner and drinks. High ceiling bar is spacious, beautiful, active and incorporating pizza oven, glimpses into the kitchen with loft seating above. Or be guided into more private quiet dining room areas. Long a growing Siesta Key favorite, great food, good for drinks and snax in the evening, super socializing in the bar, or intimate dinners, aft. ”
