  1. Slyce Pizza Bar

    North Pinellas beaches : 311 Gulf Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach, 33785

    "Hip" is the word that comes first to mind at Slyce, the down side being that it can be noisy and a little frenetic. As per the pizza, there are some shock-value pies: A Coney Island topped with chili and sliced Sabrett dogs; the super-spicy Sunburn with chilies and hot sausage and a ...

    Channelside : 1120 E Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, 33602

  8. Friendly Tavern

    Editor's pick

    North Pinellas beaches : 18121 Gulf Blvd., Redington Shores, 33708

    Darts and one of the beach's best karaoke nights on Tuesday (this was supposedly the first bar in Pinellas County to get a karaoke machine) are reason enough to hit this longtime local favorite. But Friendly is a place where summer and winter beachgoers alike go for cold ones and killer conversation...

  11. The Slug

    12950 Racetrack Road , Tampa, 33626

    The Slug is a lot like Westchase - cookie-cutter. Even so, it's got the intimacy of a dive bar without the ugliness. Blond and attractive women tend bar, wearing dressy black spaghetti string tops. There's no food, but they've got to-go menus for nearby restaurants. There's a sweet digital jukebox, ...

  12. Tampa Bay Brewing Co.

    Editor's pick

    Ybor City : 1600 E Eighth Ave., Tampa, 33605

    They brew their own beer, and it's damn good. They make their own pizza dough with that beer, and it's damn good, too. Beer-infused menu items like the Iron Rat Stout crab cakes and jalapeno beer cheese soup - well, they're also pretty damn delightful. But if you've lived your e...

    Clearwater Beach : 7 Rockaway St, Clearwater, 33767

    The Selling Point is the she-crab soup. (Insert Homer drool here.) It's Frenchy's, so you know the good eats are in the house. They offer more turf with their surf than the other Frenchy's locations, and, of course, seafood abounds. Rockaway offers a nice beachfront experience with ...

  16. Hooters (Clearwater Beach) and The Lookout Bar

    Clearwater Beach : 381 Mandalay Ave., Clearwater Beach, 33767

    Editor's pick

    10317 Causeway Blvd., Tampa, 33619

  19. The Emerald

    Editor's pick

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 550 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 33701

    It's probably the coolest place to go on a Wednesday night in St. Pete, thanks to Filth, a party with a good range of older and newer music that turns the place into basically a hipsters' lounge. The rest of the week, it's a top-notch destination for affordable rum-n-Cokes, vodka to...
