New to St. Armands: The Venue

The Venue


An exciting change has transformed 15 South Ristorante into a new concept based on the iconic hospitality of New Orleans. Prepare to take your seat at Lido Key’s new hotspot for live entertainment—The Venue.   

Opening this past March 17, The Venue is owned and operated by the Samuels family, who plan to incorporate the ambience of an upscale music club into the welcoming atmosphere of the Italian cucina, 15 South. The family’s history in the hospitality and music industry has prompted them to rebrand their former restaurant into a venue focused on live entertainment as a celebration of their multi-generational passion for great music, food, and guests. 

The Venue’s live entertainment will feature the sights and sounds of renowned jazz artists along with Latin nights, DJ sets and local musicians. The hours of operation are: 12pm–10pm, Monday through Thursday; and 12pm–2am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Venue will be closed on Tuesdays. Visitors can expect to enjoy several 15 South favorites—artisanal brick-oven pizzas, a solid wine list and fabulous cocktails as they experience the Samuel family’s signature focus on quality ingredients and excellent service. 

The Venue is a member of Nosh, SRQ magazine's content marketing program for local restaurants.

The Venue, 15 South Boulevard of the Presidents, Sarasota, 941-388-1555.
