Blue Shark

Categories: Bar

Features: Jazz/Blues, Live music

Alcohol: Full bar

More in this neighborhood: Ybor City

It's one of the few bars on Seventh where you can avoid the hubbub and hassle of the Ybor nightlife crowd; where the beats are most likely from an old Delta king's boot heel kicking the floor. The Blue Shark has become a linchpin in Tampa's music scene for its appeal to old and new school blues fans. The regulars are varied, from SoHo chic types to Parrotheads in shorts. Considering Blue Shark's longstanding reputation, its killer new digs and sound system, there's a good chance that the evil spell over that space on 15th and Seventh has finally been broken.
