Published on 01/29/24: Family owned Seven C Music and 7C Coffee! Coffee shop, guitar repair, live music, beer, wine, cider…what a cool place near downtown St Pete!

I brought Colt here in search of 8yr old guitar lessons. Not their thing, but what we found was a guitar shop where Hendrix and Page could have brought their guitars for repair back in the day. Really neat place!
