Our Story

George Peabody believed in the power and importance of education in the lives of others. One of his many legacies is The George Peabody Library, an institute he built for, and dedicated to, the citizens of Baltimore in 1857.

Johns Hopkins was inspired by his close friend George Peabody to use his great wealth for the public good. The collaboration between these men and the institutions they created is the inspiration for our restaurant, located within Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.

At The Peabody, the familiar aroma of coffee, the promise of a delicious meal, and the anticipation of friendly buzz will offer a reprieve from the daily chaos. It is where the community as a whole comes to refill their cup, both proverbially and, often, quite literally.

In collaboration with the teams behind Oxford Exchange, Oxford Creative Studio, Oxford Design Studio, and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, The Peabody Restaurant was created; we hope to honor our namesakes through this restaurant.

We will see you at the library!

Our Concepts

Oxford Exchange

We began with a mission to create something that would cultivate community and conversation. Designed in the spirit of human engagement, Oxford Exchange is ultimately a gathering place housing a collection of ideas and experiences under a single roof. Just as the name suggests, we drew inspiration from the historic clubs, libraries and shops of London, whose charm and history seem to spark spontaneous social interaction.

The Alexander Brown

The Alexander Brown building has called the corner of Baltimore and Calvert Street home for over two centuries, providing an epicenter of banking and business to the City of Baltimore. Today, the iconic building is setting out on a new chapter with a new type of commerce, while still holding on to its legacy. It’s not about starting over, it’s about embracing what you already have — and The Alexander Brown Restaurant hopes to do just that. The A.B. will provide a historic setting for modern conversation, phenomenal food, and worldly design.
