Sparkman Wharf may be the most instagrammable location in the city of Tampa. The shipping container restaurants, vibrant pink Tampa sign, assortment of murals, and its waterfront setting all crave a camera. The newest addition to the waterfront food and entertainment hub is Joyful Notion. This will be downtown Tampa’s first lifestyle boutique and flower bar.

Part gift shop, part fashion boutique, part flower shop, this fun and altogether joyful concept will be a breath of fresh air at Sparkman Wharf.

I can hardly stand how gorgeous these Peonies are! They smell amazing!!

Joyful Notion officially opens the weekend of August 15. You can keep up with the latest Joyful Notion updates by following the concept on Facebook.

Sparkman Wharf had been closed for several weeks due to the ongoing global pandemic. The outdoor food hall officially reopened with new safety guidelines on May 18.

Sparkman’s Biergarten currently offers drinks to-go. The space is of course pet-friendly too. You can see a full view of concepts at Sparkman Wharf by visiting its website, and following it on Facebook and Instagram
