The Bends is a bar located here in St. Pete. It does attract hipsters so if that's not your thing, look somewhere else. There is a great selection of drinks here. They host local bands in the back room. The back room turns into a little dance club when there's bands and DJs. The bartenders are super talented and know how to make a mean cocktail. A great plus is that the cocktails are about $7-8 here when at other places their about $10-11. It is a small place, so come early if you are looking for a place to sit.
