  • Hula Bay Club


    Cuisine: American casual, Seafood casual
    Features: Beach/Waterfront, Big-screen TVs, DJ/Techno, Happy hour, Live music, Pool

    MacDill Area: 5210 W Tyson Ave., Tampa, 33611

    Since opening in January 2009, Hula Bay Club has quickly established itself as a waterfront drinking destination. There are few pleasures more enjoyable than sipping a luscious libation while watching the sun slip beneath the horizon. The bayside funplex features an indoor restaurant, bar, a poolside lounge and a dining deck. Hula Bay has a Hawaiian theme driven home by homage to Waikikian surfing and swimming legend Duke Kahanamoku. There's a nice bio of him on the menu. And a fabulously fruity drink bears his name.

  • Elmer's Sports Cafe


    Cuisine: American casual
    Features: Big-screen TVs, Dog-friendly, Jukebox, Karaoke, Neighborhood, Outdoor seating, Sports

    MacDill Area: 5206 S MacDill Ave., Tampa, 33611

    The second of two Elmers, this is no junior. It's bigger and comfier than its Ybor brother, with a huge U-shaped bar, tall and regular-size tables accommodating around 150 people. Because it's cleaner than your average bar and there's no smoking inside, the brick walls and painted wood paneling don't have that dingy bar-yuk coating.

    Eleven TVs, two big-screens show NFL Ticket games and other sports. In addition, there are three pool tables, darts, golf and bowling video games, and a dog-friendly outdoor deck to pet a pooch or enjoy a cigarette. The mostly female bartenders pride themselves on serving stiff cocktails. Jaeger bombs are popular and cost less than at most bars, and buckets of domestic beers cost $9. Guinness and Bass are available on tap.

    This is a Washington Redskins hangout, so be careful if you're a Cowboys fan and mistakenly wander in. Great burgers, wings and salads highlight the menu. Kitchen stays open late.

  • Gengiz Khan Restaurant


    Cuisine: Middle Eastern, Vegetarian
    Features: Children's menu

    MacDill Area: 6102 S MacDill Ave., Tampa, 33611

    Cuisine: American casual
    Features: Children's menu, Kid-friendly, Takeout

    MacDill Area: 4420 W Gandy Blvd., Tampa, 33611

    There's one reason to go to Hooter's. The wings are absolutely phenomenal and it's a great place to sit back and catch the local game. The scantily dressed waitresses don't hurt either.

  • TDY's Sports Pub


    Features: Darts, Pool tables, Sports

    Macdill Area: 5415 Bayshore Blvd., Tampa, 33611

    Down, way down, on Bayshore sits this neighborhood hole, located where the houses stop looking ridiculously expensive and start looking like working class homes. One of the friendliest bars in South, South Tampa. TDY is the exact picture in the dictionary under local bar: one pool table, one Golden Tee, a bar with nothing special to drink and some neon signs about random teams being sponsored by Bud.
