About Downtown Tampa
The Downtown Tampa skyline is growing with high rise office buildings like the Sykes building, and luxurious condominiums like Skypoint. The streets below the skyline are where you will find the many great restaurants, shops and bars that Tampa has to offer. Most of Tampa nightlife, along with other areas of interest, is found outside the downtown area in places like Hyde Park and historic Ybor City. Also located in Downtown Tampa are the Tampa Convention Center and St Pete Times Forum, where everything from classy Tampa events to exciting games happen. The University of Tampa is located just across the waters of Curtis Hixon Park, where many large, popular annual events are held. The TECO Line Streetcar provides affordable transportation to Channelside, Ybor City and downtown. Channelside is another popular neighborhood where there are popular restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping and theaters all in the same development! Harbour Island and Davis Island border Downtown Tampa just South onto the Bay Waters and house everything from enormous homes to subtle apartments all while being surrounded by their own small community with locally owned businesses, restaurants and salons. Be sure to check out everything Tampa has to offer by checking out the Tampa City Guide, where recreation, events and even local jobs in Tampa can be found!

Every time I visit Tampa I make a point to do Happy Hour at Franklin Manor. Outdoor seating, a full bar, and the head-sized pretzel is a must. Crisp and flaky on the outside and soft in the center.

I had a great time there for a 2000s music event, the drinks and the atmosphere is amazing! Definitely a spot to go with friends and have fun.

Pros: Wonderful drinks, atmosphere, and location.
Cons: Can get a bit pricey and crowded depending on the evening.

Great place to start your day with breakfast and the lunch is also excellent. Rosa and her staff do a great job in the kitchen and here's a big plus - they're ALWAYS friendly!
Pros: Food, service, view from 4th floor
Cons: Parking - but that's all of downtown Tampa
