South Tampa-based MacDinton’s to open St. Petersburg location

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

MacDinton’s, a long-time fixture in the South Tampa bar scene, will be opening another location in St. Petersburg.

The Irish-themed bar, known for large crowds and live music, is expected to open mid-December in the Jannus Live entertainment complex.

“We’d been searching for another venue for about a year-and-a-half and we needed a large space,” MacDinton’s founding partner Barry O’Connor said in a news release Wednesday. “Seeing as Jannus Live is the best live music venue on this side of the Bay, and MacDinton’s has a strong commitment to live music, it’s the perfect match.”

MacDinton’s will open in the space formerly reserved for SPiN Galactic, a ping pong social club with a bar and restaurant. Jannus Live recently announced the club was no longer under development in the complex.

SPiN franchise partners expressed commitment to open elsewhere in St. Petersburg.
