A top-notch sound system, the best sight lines, comfy patio and mind-boggling variety of bands have established Crowbar as one of the best places to catch a band in Tampa Bay. Ceramic-mosaic columns, red draperies and mirror-backed bar walls contrast against corrugated steel, black polished concrete floor, chrome and black bar stools and brushed aluminum countertops. Its look is a mix of all the types of bars it's been before -- a rave club, martini lounge and garage-rock bar all rolled into one. It can seem a bit cavernous if the band doesn't draw a big crowd, but when it does, Crowbar is the most comfortable venue outside a concert hall or theater to rock out with a crowd. There really doesn't seem to be anywhere inside where you can't see the stage. A raised platform with foosball deck gives you a good side-stage vantage point if the floor is too crowded. Owner Tom DeGeorge says the red curtain was added behind the stage to cover up a mirror that interfered with band equipment. Plus, the sound system is powerful, but not blaring.
