St. Pete staple Wilson’s Sports Lounge closes

June 9, 2022 - After 50 years of serving up cheap drinks and good times to St. Petersburg residents, Wilson’s Sports Lounge has closed for good. Opened in 1972 by John Wilson, the bar was also famous as a set piece in the movie “Magic Mike.” The sign in front of the distinct, semicircular building at 3030 4th St. N. called it the “end of an era” and thanked customers for years of support. The Bellair Development Group now owns the property, and future plans remain unclear.
