For this year's tbt* Ultimate Bar Guide, we compiled 100 reasons we love going to bars in Tampa Bay. Part of that list? Six awesome bars that celebrate different aspects of Tampa Bay's vibrant musical culture.

To be clear, this isn't a comprehensive list of local joints that offer great local music, so you won't see awesome places like New World Brewery, Crowbar and Fubar. It's just six that we love and decided to spotlight: The Ale and the Witch, the Orpheum, the Pelican Pub, the Hideaway Cafe, Uncle Mike's Smokehouse Grill and the Brass Mug. Click here to read about them all.

Elsewhere in this year's bar guide, you'll find items on tons more local music hangouts: The Hub, the Amphitheatre, The Bends, Octave, Hogan's Beach, Mermaid Tavern, Gaspar's Grotto, Shephard's Beach Resort and more. Click here to read it. And while you're there, check out the awesome interactive scavenger hunt we put together about Skipper's Smokehouse!
