With world-class DJs (Benny Banassi, Mix Master Mike) and some inventive events (a Reborn Couture fashion show), the Kennedy has managed to become another magnet for the trendy SoHo crowd — and all on one of Tampa's most blah boulevards, Kennedy. Dark, wine-colored walls with gold-leaf trim and handsomely designed posters add to the exotic feel of the giant, ornate center bar. Booming beats and pristine acoustics come courtesy of the excellent Funktion-One hybrid sound system. "The only other place in the state you'll find one is Miami," says owner Tommy Ortiz.
