ST. PETERSBURG

The Bishop Tavern has changed hands and is going a bit upscale, said new owner Dave Marshlack. Dave and his son Dean have sunk about $150,000 into renovations at the bar at 260 First Ave. N, including VIP rooms for pour-your-own-bottle service. The 4,500-square-foot, two-story bar is popular with the college and young-professional crowd, Marshlack said. The father-son duo owns a dozen clubs in Florida and the Carolinas.
