New Event Space Opens in the Heart of St. Petersburg Ahead of Florida's Busy Party Season

Savant on Second is a 100-year-old property that took ten years to painstakingly renovate into a premier event space able to host the most memorable and intimate private parties. With a spacious interior and outdoor terrace, caterers and event planners will find the 5,500-square-foot venue customizable to any theme and able to welcome up to 250 guests. The interior has unique features such as 20-foot-high ceilings with skylights hand painted by the internationally acclaimed artist Ya La’ford and original octagon tiles, which have been diligently restored. The outdoor terrace can accommodate an open-air bar set-up, cocktail tables, a live band, and a dance floor.

Located at 634 2nd Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701, Savant on Second has an elegant, alluring appeal for private parties with rustic modern glam and lush greenery. The spacious, open-air venue is perfect for the upcoming party season, providing guests with a chic backdrop for graduation parties, weddings, corporate gatherings, and other private party celebrations. Caterers and event planners can easily re-imagine the interior setting and outdoor terrace to accommodate the needs and preferences of the most discerning client opting for an extravagant event or one with laid-back elegance.

“The overall ambiance at Savant on Second allows an experience not found in other halls in town, making it the most beautiful space to host celebrations that mark the most intimate and heart-warming moments in people’s lives. Within walking distance to the prominent destinations in downtown St. Petersburg, the event space is perfect for milestone celebrations, catering to the most selective clientele who wants to throw a party that creates long-lasting memories,” says Bob Glaser, President and CEO of Smith & Associates. Glaser led the restoration of the building, working with the City of St. Petersburg to complete the restoration. The restoration was carefully refined so that Tim Clemmons, esteemed architect of Place Architecture, was consulted at every change to ensure that construction respected the history yet appealed to the needs of the modern consumer. Ed Seifried Construction completed the building restoration.

The Savant on Second is available to book events now. Visit for more information.
