Review for Ybor City Wine Bar by Scott
Rating: 5 Rating
The Ybor City Wine Bar is exactly what Ybor City needed. It reminds people that Ybor is more than just a nightlife clubbing party district but instead that Ybor is a treasure. Centrally located right in the heart of Centro Ybor overlooking 7th Ave, the Wine Bar is ..
Pros: Great location in the heart of Ybor City. It is classy but a down to earth bar. Very friendly staff and they host some cool wine events.
Cons: It does not have their own parking so you have to park at a nearby lot or parking garage but the location is in the center of all the action.
Review for Centennial Park by Scott
Rating: 5 Rating
Centennial Park in Ybor City is so charming and a great place to just relax in the evening or attend one of the many events and markets that are held here. Next time you are in Ybor, take a strong through Centennial Park.
Pros: Some fun events are held here and it is a good escape from the bustling Ybor City 7th Ave. Great place to just relax too.
Cons: They need more events to utilize this great space. Parking in Ybor is tricky if you are not a local and know the spots.
Review for Bernini of Ybor by Scott
Rating: 5 Rating
I had lived in Ybor City for many years and unfortunately had never dined at Bernini's. I finally made it there for lunch and had the Crispy Duck. Amazing food! Very friendly staff and enjoyable restaurant experience. I highly recommend Bernini's in Ybor City.
Pros: Amazing food, martinis and service.
Cons: Parking in Ybor City is difficult for those not familiar with Ybor.
Review for Club Prana by Scott
Rating: 5 Rating
I have been a big fan of Prana for years, ever since I moved to Tampa. They have been consistent over the many years as one of Tampa's best night clubs. Ybor City has had its struggling times, but through it all, Prana was the place that never ..
Pros: Rooftop bar on the 5th level in the heart of Ybor City. Always a good time!
Cons: You have to arrive early if you want to avoid the long lines.
Review for Samurai Blue Sushi & Sake Bar by Carlos
Rating: 5 Rating
I think Samurai Blue is perhaps one of the best sushi restaurants in Tampa Bay. It has survived the nasty 2008 recession and continued to still serve quality fish and food that can satisfactory even a picky sushi diner like myself. I traveled to Tokyo, Japan last winter and have ..
Pros: Excellent sushi, excellent service, nice atmosphere inside.
Cons: Parking in Ybor City can be a bit of a pain.
Review for Gaspar's Grotto by Scott
Rating: 5 Rating
Gaspar's is one of my favorite bars in Ybor City. Live music, outdoor patio bars, good food, friendly staff and pirate themed. It's a fun bar that always has events going on whether its pet related, art, charity, live music or even beach themed, they throw a good ..
Pros: The people, the staff, outdoor patio bars and live music.
Cons: Parking, just like any place in Ybor City can be a pain at certain times of the day.
