Nestled in a space that was once a Five & Dime in the historic Kress Building in downtown St. Pete, Iberian Rooster is a Portuguese Fusion restaurant and speakeasy. The complexity of colonial street food meets the simplicity of tapas with dynamic flavors worthy of the harmony that exists between the culinary cultures of Mozambique, Macau, Brazil, and Goa. Take the stairs down to the underground known as Subcentral and you'll feel as though you're worlds away. The modern speakeasy offers up delicious – and potentially dangerous (yet always entertaining) hand-crafted cocktails, and entertainment designed to fit whatever mood you're in (depending on the day), from music inspired by the storied rooms of Mouraria's Fado houses, to jazz quartets belting old school stride-swing standards, to the glittering spectacle of brilliantly bawdy burlesque. You'll even find yourself romanced by silent film (with live piano accompaniment, of course), mysteriously marvelous melees, and artfully curated storytelling events, where you might even find yourself center stage.
