  1. Haven

    South Tampa : 2208 W Morrison Ave., Tampa, 33606

    Hours: 5-10 p.m. Mon.-Wed., until 11 p.m. Thur.-Sat., closed Sun.

    A 2015 newcomer set in the old SideBern's location, this Bern's sibling less old-school fancy than Bern's, and less expensive than SideBern's, but no less ambitious than either. It has without a doubt the...

  2. Cafe Dufrain

    Editor's pick

    707 Harbour Post Drive, Tampa, 33602

    Boasting one of Tampa's best views, this Harbour Island bistro is one of downtown's best getaways. Get smart eating from lemongrass soups to diver scallops, risotto, short ribs and salmon with frizzled leeks. Flavors come from the Pacific and the Americas, but the style is Tampa lofty. ...

  3. Station House

    260 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg, 33701

    They’ve kept the cool basementy ratskeller feel of Cafe Alma, but broken up the center of the room with circular booths and, through a combination of new upholstery and blue-gray wainscoting, given the whole thing a higher level of sophistication. The best seats are at the bar, partly bec...

  4. Bern's Steak House

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 1208 S Howard Ave., Tampa, 33606

    Naysayers can grouse, but there's no denying the fine meat and one of the world's best and cheapest wine lists. You can drink back through 20 years in Spanish, Italians, Rhones and zins for $75 or less. Lighten up and relax; just exploring the menu's new additions takes time. Desser...

  5. Tryst Gastro Lounge

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 240 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg, 33701

    Banquettes suitable for the likes of Marie Antoinette (had she been a barfly), a long onyx bar capped by a crowd of dazzling pendant lamps, shimmery silver wallpaper and a reflective mosaic tile backsplash on the bar — it's about as stylish a nightspot as we've seen in these parts...

  6. Cena

    Channelside : 1120 E Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, 33602

    The Grand Central in Tampa's vital Channel District has been up and running for a while. There's the Pour House and City Dog Cantina on one side of a central courtyard, and Stageworks Theatre and stylish little Cena on the other side. The dinner-only menu is resolutely Italian, but very...

  7. Crumb & Cork

    501 N Franklin St., Tampa, 33602

    The menu is dominated by artisanal cheeses and charcuterie sourced from some of the world's greats and the wine list serves up about 150 bottlings, 35 by the glass, with many unusual finds (and some glasses as low as $5). A collaboration of Joshua Pillock and Joseph Saine (Joseph is more th...

  8. Three Birds Tavern

    Fourth Street Garden District : 1492 Fourth St. N, St. Petersburg, 33704

    In the space that used to be Limey’s, owners Robin and Jack King have created a comfortable, good-times gathering place that even diehard Limey's fans can embrace. The Kings repainted, cleaned up the bar, added a south and north patio (the latter with a cozy fire pit), but the bigger ...

  9. Black Palm- CLOSED

    South Pinellas beaches : 1700 Park St., St. Petersburg, 33710

    Kathy and Lui Arango ran Black Palm on the Pass-a-Grille end of St. Pete Beach for a number of years, building a reputation as a great place for Latin-inspired tapas and an even better place for wedding receptions and other nuptial-related gatherings. They closed that location in early in 2014&...

  10. Birch & Vine at the Birchwood

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 340 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg, 33701

    Wander from the white-curtained cabanas to the edge of the rooftop with its sweeping views of Tampa Bay and Straub Park and you'll hear people all saying the same thing: "Why doesn't every place on Beach Drive have a rooftop bar?" Still, the main attraction is the ground-floor...

  11. Latitudes

    North Pinellas beaches : 13205 Gulf Blvd., Madeira Beach, 33708

    It's a space with a pedigree. In the spot that used to house Dockside Dave's, a new three-story building has been erected at the edge of Madeira Bay Marina. It's the handiwork of a bunch of pros who know what they're doing when it comes to casual, waterfront dining heavy on the Jimmy Buffet sound...

  12. Hamburger Mary's Bar & Grille

    Ybor City : 1600 E Seventh Ave., Ybor City, 33605

    The original Hamburger Mary's, in San Francisco’s South of Market area, was gay-friendly, divey and free-spirited, with ruby slippers as planters, baby bottles serving as coffee creamers, and lots of people with suspiciously big feet dressed as women. It was a warm and inclusive late-...

  13. The Round Up

    Oldsmar : 10051 W Hillsborough Ave, Tampa, 33615

  14. Bottles Up Sport Bar and Grill

    873 E Klosterman Road, Tarpon Springs, 34689

  15. Alan & Michele's Monkey Bar

    1681 Gulf to Bay Blvd., Clearwater, 33755

    Dressed up like the Jungle Book set in a dive bar, this monkey hole is a lot of neon and tiki bar decor with bamboo and palm tree action. Southern rock dominates the jukebox, and pool tables get the shark treatment. A fun spot for older singles, 40s and up crowd.

  16. Elmer's Sports Cafe

    Ybor City : 2003 E Seventh Ave., Tampa, 33605

    No need to get dressed up to have a drink at this neighborhood hangout. If you're not looking for the posh and pomp of the Ybor crowds, look for Elmer's. If you're a Redskins fan, throw on that hog's nose and belly up to the bar. They have great Monday Night Football specials.

  17. Boulevard Beef & Ale

    West Pasco : 6236 Grand Blvd., New Port Richey, 34652

    A casual dining spot that serves up everything from casual appetizers to steak dinners. The owners just added a 75-seat outdoor patio that features live music on Fridays.

  18. The Dirty Martini

    Editor's pick

    Countryside : 25032 U.S. 19 N , Clearwater, 33763

    The Dirty Martini definitely lives up to its name. With gimmicks like nearly naked sushi, nude body painting and "skin parties," this upscale club is all about being naughty while serving up an array of fine martinis in a posh South Beach-style atmosphere - and does it all right off U.S. 19, which i...

  19. Mirage

    Editor's pick

    3605 W Hillsborough Ave., Tampa, 33614

    A lot of places offer salsa lessons, but this swanky spot is where people who already know how to dance come to get their groove on. Wednesdays and Fridays are officially Latin nights, with DJ Speedy Jr. spinning the hottest salsa, bachata, reggaeton and more from his sky box while couples danc...

  20. Sea Critters Cafe

    South Pinellas beaches : 2007 Pass A Grille Way, St. Pete Beach, 33706

    This turquoise and yellow splashed landmark on the corner of the 21st Street bridge stands has a back porch so close to the bridge that it feels like a Chevy might take a nose dive into your quesadillas. Inside, mounted sharks, fish tanks and layers of wooden benches make up the decor. No memor...
