Longtime-coming Irish 31 opened in 2011 in the building occupied by the original Wine Exchange. It has always been a wonderful space, on a corner with big windows and an inviting patio, adjacent to what is now CineBistro. Owners Jay and Bianca Mize have made it even better, with gorgeous wood floors, rustic light fixtures that look straight from nearby Restoration Hardware, cool tables with attached, fold-out stools, and a wall of vintage Tampa black-and-white photos. The menu is a savvy mix of traditional Irish pub fare and its classic American counterparts: shepherd's pie and lamb stew alongside burgers and fat Reuben sandwiches. At night the draw is live music in the courtyard.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday to Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight Sunday.
