Tampa Bay Area Night Life.

If you are heading to Tampa or a resident there then you need to know where all the hotspots are. Visiting Tampa during the day is exciting and fun but once the sun goes down you will see that the fun has just begun.

If you are looking for an early evening place to hang out, have a few drinks, grab something to eat and do a little shopping then Ybor City is the place for you. Ybor has several great places to eat, drink and dance. Many of the restaurants and clubs in Ybor City the heart of Tampa, Florida offer live bands and high energy surroundings. While most of the restaurants in Ybor City only require casual dress there are a few higher style, fine dining establishments that require a shirt and tie. If you see a place you want to go to at night, it is a good idea to call ahead and make reservations, especially if it is during season, and while youíre at it, get their dress code requirements as well.

Looking for a great place to kick up your heels and do a little dancing in Tampa? Bar Tampa is the place to be. There is no other bar in Tampa quite like Bar Tampa. When you walk in the excitement in the air along with the pumping music will be enough to get you out on the dance floor. But donít let the fun stop there. Look up around the bar at the television screens. You can see what people in bars all across the United States are doing at that very same moment. Donít forget to wave to the camera as it comes around so you can be see on a television screen in another bar somewhere in the United States.

If you are looking for a more relaxed place to mingle with friends or maybe find someone new to hang out with then the atmosphere at Hyde Park Cafť might be more your style. While dancing and drinking goes on inside Hyde Park Cafť you can still mix and mingle easily in their outdoor area. So kick up your heels inside and then head outside for some great conversation. Itís the best of both worlds in Hyde Park (Downtown Tampa).

If your in the mood for something a little bit more off the beaten path then venture on over to The Castle. This is a two story club with an amazing first floor bar. But donít be shocked at what you see when you get inside. The Castle in Tampa is the place where many of the gothic people hang out. You will see beautiful people in tight black leather, silver dresses and other wild and unusual garb. You can wear anything you are comfortable in but one little tip to follow when hanging out at The Castle; wear dark clothing Ö anything light colored might get dirty in a wild club like this.

No matter what kind of nightlife entertainment you are looking for in Tampa, there is always a little something for everyone.
