Anyone else itching for Fly Bar to return? The popular cocktail spot was a Franklin Street staple for years.
The spirited spot will reemerge in a bustling corner near Oxford Exchange in 2020. First we shop for books, then we grab some rabbit tacos (assuming they’re still on the Fly Bar menu).
Hotel Bar takeover
Located at 442 West Kennedy Boulevard, the new Fly Bar will of course continue to deliver the same energy and flavorful offerings it did on Franklin Street. We’re currently dreaming about the fried goat cheese balls and delicious house sangria.
Fly Bar’s new spot will offer ample outdoor seating so diners can enjoy some Florida sunshine while they sip.
Return of local foodie favorites
A true original in Tampa’s now flourishing nightlife scene, diners continue to rave about the small plates, such as the frites and mussels with hopped aioli, and the rabbit tacos.
Fly Bar isn’t the only new cocktail spot we’re excited about. The Copper Shaker, a supreme small plates and spirits purveyor in downtown St. Pete is opening a new hub in historic Ybor City in 2020.
