  2. MacDinton's Irish Pub

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 405 S Howard Ave., Tampa, 33606

    MacDinton's opened in 2002, same year as its chief competitor, The Dubliner. Unlike The Dubliner, MacDinton's has a liquor license, which it uses to make an assortment of mind-blowing "bombs" that are very popular with drinkers in their early 20s. An expansive booze emporium, MacDinton …

  3. Taiga

    Editor's pick

    Tampa : 10317 Causeway Blvd., Tampa, 33619

    One of Brandon's few nightlife hotspots, Taiga has a different theme each night of the week and gets crazy on the weekends. The two-story hangout looks like a sports bar with all the TVs and murals of sports scenes on the walls. But at night, the tables are pushed aside, the strobe lights kick o …

    Editor's pick

    Tampa : 3603 W Waters Ave., Tampa, 33614

    The popular club mixes it up with the Best of Both Worlds Thursdays (that's hip-hop and reggaeton), hip-hop Fridays, Latin Saturdays and Sunday teen nights through the summer.

  5. The Dallas Bull

    Editor's pick

    Tampa : 3322 U.S. 301, Tampa, 33619

    A living, breathing, bucking machine on the skirts of East Tampa, the Bull is Florida's answer to Billy Bob's in Fort Worth: A veritable honky-tonk heaven, a place where the only thing sexier than a belle in boots is the intro to Copperhead Road. The numbers speak for themselves: 31,000 square f …

  6. Luna Lounge

    Ybor City : 1802 E Seventh Ave., Tampa, 33605

    Located on the second floor above iconic Carmine's Restaurant in Ybor, this seasoned nightspot offers DJs spinning mostly hip-hop, reggae and techno. Yep, it's one of those bars that cranky Tampa Bay old-timers complain about. But for younger singles out for a good time, this is a good place to  …

  7. Hyde Park Cafe

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 1806 W Platt St. , Tampa, 33606

    Named the top bar in the Tampa Bay area in 2009 by free weekly tbt*, Hyde Park Cafe is a see and be seen kind of place. You haven't truly partied in Tampa if you haven't woken up hung over after a Tuesday night at the Cafe. Tuesdays are for the real partiers who aren't afraid to stay out late on …

  8. Aja

    Downtown Tampa : 290 S Meridian Ave., Tampa, 33602

    When it opened in January just before the 2009 Super Bowl, it was clear that AJA Channelside, the ultra-chic nightclub in the Towers of Channelside, was swinging for the fences. So far, it's hitting them. During the Super Bowl, guests included Pamela Anderson, Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson an …

  9. Czar

    Editor's pick

    Ybor City : 1420 E Seventh Ave. , Tampa, 33604

    Lookit: When you talk about Czar, the word "hipster" is going to get tossed around a lot. There's just no way to avoid it. Sideways haircuts, thrift-store sundresses, skinny jeans and huge sunglasses (yes, even at midnight) — all of these are de rigueur at Czar. On the other hand …

    Pinellas Park : 7020 49th St, Pinellas Park, 33781

  12. Blur

    Dunedin : 325 Main St., Dunedin, 34697

    Blur's crew gives us style with assuredness. They know how to lay it on and how to hold back. It's spacious, clean, accommodating. Nothing is over the top. Sheer draperies and glass dividers accent the rear interior bar and DJ booth - and they set off an adorable privacy area by the parquet danc …

  13. Rasher Tierney's Irish Pub

    Bradenton : 5106 14th St. W, Bradenton, 34207

    Out of town but worth the drive for Tampa Bay residents, Rasher Tierney's offers a spacious Irish pub-style atmosphere with good grub and many fresh brews on tap. Bradenton kingpins Have Gun, Will Travel and Sons of Hippies play often, as well as reggae and Irish folk bands. You'll even catch so …

    Editor's pick

    Ybor City : 1401 E Seventh Ave. , Tampa, 33605

    For the past couple of years, G. Bar has been an enormously welcome, and enormously entertaining, presence in Ybor City. The fun-loving club has been a major player in building up the GaYbor scene, which now boasts a slew of gay and gay-friendly nightclubs. Out of all of them, though, G.Bar is t …

  16. Georgie's Alibi

    Editor's pick

    St. Petersburg : 3100 Third Ave. N, St. Petersburg, 33713

    Relaxed and sporty (but always up for a party on weekends), it's the grand dude/dame of Pinellas gay bars, even if it's not that old (it opened in 2000, the cousin of another Alibi in Broward County). Thursday's Long Island Iced Tea party is not to be missed -- it's crowded, but $3 mason jars fi …

  17. Cajun Cafe On the Bayou

    Editor's pick

    Pinellas Park : 8101 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park, 33781

Let's just say tha …

    Editor's pick

    Ybor City : 1708 E Seventh Ave., Tampa, 33605

    The most visible of the Green Iguana gang thanks to its digs smack-dab on Seventh Avenue, this location has been a destination for locals and tourists since 1994. A fixture of the Ybor nightlife scene, it has five full bars, two large dance floors, stage and second level DJ booth. The music runs …

  19. Green Iguana (N West Shore)

    Editor's pick

    Tampa : 1200 N West Shore Blvd., Tampa, 33607

    This Green Iguana debuted in January of 2008 with a grand opening that found the place packed to capacity with fun (and booze) loving professionals. Situated on the first floor of the Westshore Hotel in Tampa, it's darker, more loungey and ritzier than the rest. There are three bars including th …

  20. Mirage

    Editor's pick

    Tampa : 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 dance …
