Hogan's Beach, onetime EDM hotspot, to rebrand without Hulk Hogan

Luis Santana



Seems like only yesterday Skrillex was rocking Hogan's Beach in Tampa. Before that, it was DJs like Cedric Gervais, Zeds Dead, DJ Snake, Dash Berlin and the Chainsmokers.

Now EDM is out at Hogan's. And so, it seems, is Hulk Hogan himself.

The bayside restauranta and venue is expected to be re-branded and renamed, ending its association with Hogan, the restaurant's owner said Friday. The restaurant and adjacent Best Western-Bay Harbor-Tampa hotel are being sold with a closure pending in the near future, said owner Ben Mallah. He said no sale is guaranteed until closing, but earlier expressed no uncertainty in saying Hogan's Beach and the hotel would be re-branded.
