Downtown St. Petersburg Lounge Keeps the New Year’s Party Rolling All Month Long  

Tampa Bay, FLA (January 13, 2020) – Ruby’s Elixir, St. Petersburg’s premier downtown destination for good times and great live music, continues to ring in 2020 with an eclectic and always-entertaining array of performances throughout the month of January.

The casual-chic lounge has long been a favorite among St. Pete nightlifers for hosting a variety of the best in local and national music, and Ruby’s continues the trend into the new year. The rest of the month promises something for everyone from the only downtown venue to showcase two performances seven nights a week without ever charging a cover. 

Tampa Bay’s own funky, bluesy Matt Bellina Band, West Palm Beach alt-rockers Thoughts, and Bradenton R&B/roots-rock outfit Doug Deming & The Jewel Tones are among January’s weekend featured headliners. But there’s no need to for fans to wait until the weekend to get their live-music fix—Ruby’s fills the week with a diverse schedule of acts ranging from local favorites like beloved soul performer Shawn Brown, singer-songwriter Ella Jet, veteran entertainer Jeremy Thomas, local jazz great Hiram Hazley, and Wednesday night’s beloved blues jam.

Patrons can stop in for a tasty cocktail or beer from the full-liquor bar every night and hear something different each time. It all happens in a warm, stylish, slightly retro environment that provides the timeless vibe of a classic music lounge as well as one of the best stages in town. 

The full schedule for the rest of January is below. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. each night. For more information, visit or
