Comments : Mangroves is one of the nicest restaurants in South Tampa. Between us, we had the Sea Bass and Filet and it was incredible then we stuck around for some drinks after dinner and around 11pm the people started flowing and the DJ came on and it turned into a great nightlife scene. Outside patio, great people and great music. Mangroves is Great!

Pros : Food, Music, Atmosphere

Cons : N/A

Rating : 11111 4 years ago4.5

Comments : Mangroves is great if you're willing to look over a few hurdles. Great dance atmosphere on Saturday nights.

Pros : Fun place to party a little more on the upscale side in SoHo.

Cons : Parking is terrible on a busy night. $8 for tiny, weak cocktails you'll wait forever for on a night like this.

Comments : Mangroves is one of my favorite places in the Hyde Park / South Tampa area. The crowd is usually really good, the location is in walking distance to many of the other SOHO bars and the service is top notch. You usually can get parking with the Valet which is priced much lower than most of the parking options. You will love the energetic nightlife atmosphere, delicious food and the outdoor patio!

Pros : Great service, delicious food, very clean and energetic atmosphere.

Cons : It is hard to find parking unless you valet your car.

Cons : It can get crowded during some of the nightlife, however, it is a great crowd to be around.
