Times are changing at the Aloft Tampa Downtown as they usher in a host of hot new parties and events! Located on the waterfront in Downtown Tampa, the W XYZ® bar is the hip place to sip signature cocktails and craft beers, listen to live music, and grab a bite.  They're kicking off Spring with a special Un-Valentine's Day Singles Party on February 14th as well as nightly Happy Hour, weekly Mondays College Night, Tuesdays Hospitality Night, Fridays Aloft Live and bi-monthly Art Nights.  With affordable cocktails and stunning views of the Riverwalk and Downtown Tampa, the W XYZ® bar is a splendid spot to gather with friends and toast the Tampa life. 

Single and ready to mingle this Valentine's Day? Skip watching sappy movies by yourself on the couch and head to the Aloft Tampa Downtown instead. They're hosting a very Un-Valentine's Day Singles Party because, as all us singles know, V is for Vodka not silly Valentine's. DJ Bongos will be spinning the tunes while you and your single friends enjoy a host of $5 drink specials.  Toast that bad breakup away with a Stupid Cupid or Love on the Rocks Cocktail.  Say goodbye to your Tinder fling with an Another One Bites the Dust, erase "Match madness" from your mind with a Shot of Love Stinks and cheers the glories of being single with a Cupid Broken Arrow cocktail. The Un-Valentine's Day party starts at 7pm and ends when Cupid exits the calendar at midnight. 

The Aloft Tampa Downtown isn't only for Un-Valentine's. The W XYZ® bar is the new spot to see and be seen in Downtown Tampa.  When Happy Hour calls, watch the sun set on the outside deck or cozy up to the fire pit and say good-bye to the workday with $5 cocktails, half-off beer and wine and $5 locally inspired appetizers from 4-7pm. On Mondays, students with a college ID enjoy half-off all night long.  Tuesday is Hospitality Night. Mix and mingle with your fellow hospitality friends and take advantage of half-off all night long!  

If you enjoy Tampa's live music scene as much as I do, you won't want to miss Aloft Live, every Friday night from 5-11pm.  Grab a craft cocktail and celebrate the arrival of the weekend with tunes from some of Tampa's hottest musicians. Stay tuned for the next bi-monthly Art Night on March 5th where you can enjoy great sounds, incredible art from local artists and of course, drink specials.

With so much happening, the time is right to check out the Aloft Tampa Downtown and the W XYZ® bar.  See you there, craft cocktail in hand.
