American Social Announces Harbour Island Debut

The food and fun scene is on the rise in Tampa. Our palates can hardly keep up with the litany of new concepts primed to broaden the culinary horizons of eager diners downtown and around the city.

On October 31, at 8pm, the evolution of Tampa’s waterfront dining game continues with the hotly anticipated debut of American Social at 601 South Harbor Boulevard. The opening party, named A Nightmare on Harbour Island, will be one of the premier Halloween events in Tampa.
