Hotel Bar Serving Classic Cocktails Downtown

Cheers to old school spirits!

Tampa is becoming a bit of a craft cocktail haven. Spots such as Ichicoro, The Franklin Manor, Ciro’s and Anise have all assisted in elevating visitors and residents standards when it comes to unwinding on the weekend. Now, there’s a new space downtown where craft spirit connoisseurs can imbibe in a classic atmosphere. Introducing the Hotel Bar.

The menu offers savory fare to complement the artisanal drinks.

The cocktail spot also offers a selection of draft beers  — Guiness Stout, Lagunitas Pils, Bell’s Two Hearted — and a long list of red and white wines. If you’re looking to nosh, Hotel Bar also features a selection of shareable plates and entrees.

The deviled eggs and salmon are divine, as is the roasted artichoke plate. Their cauliflower bisque is perfect for our currently “cold” climate and their locally made sour dough bread and butter is the perfect complement to a fine drink.
