The club at 1503 Seventh Ave. has been a lot of things over the years, including an X-rated movie house and a rock 'n' roll club called Masquerade, which hosted concerts by the likes of Phish, the Killers and Dave Matthews Band. Today it's the Ritz Ybor, one of Tampa's top concert venues — with a capacity of about 1,500, it has welcomed performers like Lady Gaga, Smashing Pumpkins and Lauryn Hill, among many others. Renovated in 2008, the Ritz, quickly became one of the area's top event spaces — it hosted Maxim's annual star-studded Super Bowl party in 2009. An impressively ornate entrance and hallway leads into the ballroom, which is tiled in black and white and draped in red curtains. There's a bar in the back of the ballroom, and one in a VIP balcony that overlooks the dance floor. Flanking the main entryway are two lounge rooms, each with its own bar — perfect for ducking into for a quick sip during the opening act.
