Beloved by the Chucks-and-hornrims set for hosting early concerts by artists like My Morning Jacket, Animal Collective and Okkervil River, New World is a fixture for any local band that hopes to make a name for itself in Central Florida. The shedlike outdoor stage is still as intimate a setting for local music as you're going to find in Tampa Bay; artists stare you straight in the eye while they play. Even if you're not into music, the patio garden is a nice respite from the craziness of Ybor. They no longer brew beer here, but the 18 or more beers on tap are still excellent (sorry, Simpsons fans, the Duff Beer signs are only decorations), and the no-frills pizza, quesadillas and tacos are great for munching.
