Tampa's International Plaza announces six new tenants

TAMPA — International Plaza has firmed up deals for six new stores, five of them new to the Tampa Bay market.

A full-line Urban Outfitters, a hip lifestyle apparel and home furnishings chain for men and women that has operated in Centro Ybor for years, will open at IP this summer. It will fill space left empty a few years ago by a Kahunaville restaurant that was then leased to a Posh 27 Lounge that never opened.

Other newcomers to the mall:

• The Pub, an "authentic" British pub as recast by Cincinnati's Tavern Restaurant Group, will take the Bay Street space vacated by Bamboo Garden. The company operates nine pubs in Irish, Scottish or British motifs in the Midwest that feature pub food and cask-pulled ales.

• Zingara, the third U.S. outlet for a Montevideo, Uruguay, swim and beachwear maker with 42 stores in Central and South America, opens in June. An Italian word for "gypsy," Zingara stores sport bare white walls, floors and counters, and swimsuit prices from $60 to $250.

• The first company-owned store operated by boat shoe maker Sperry Top-Sider opens this month.

The mall also released the opening dates of two other previously announced tenants. Ed Hardy, a graphic T-shirt shop filled with designs from a famous San Francisco tattoo artist, opens in April. Tory Burch, a lifestyle shop of women's sportswear, accessories and shoes, opens in November.
