Sip & Dry, a brand new blow dry bar is opening in the burgeoning Water Street neighborhood. Sip & Dry Blow Dry Bar is a St. Pete-based business looking to expand its footprint in the region. Strategic Property Partners just announced the signing in Via Corazon, across from the Cora residential development and on the ground floor of the East Cumberland Avenue parking garage in Water Street Tampa.

The new location will be Sip & Dry’s first in Tampa and will add a new offering to Water Street Tampa’s retail landscape as more residents, visitors, office tenants, and USF medical school students continue to move into the district.
