The only thing equal to the wild rides at Busch Gardens is the flavor bursting from the restaurants at the park. There’s something new for thrill seekers to sink their teeth into in 2023. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay opened Springs Taproom, a new casual and laidback lounge that will serve guests a variety of classic cocktails, frozen beverages, small bites and more.
The new venue, located in the Bird Gardens area of the park, features a calm pond and exuberant landscaping which will provide a relaxing setting for guests to sip different types of brews, handcrafted cocktails and enjoy delicious eats.
Springs Taproom replaces Garden Gate Café, an evolution of what once was the iconic Hospitality House, available to guests when Busch Gardens made its grand opening to the public in 1959. The new venue has been rethemed with a mix of modern decoration and classic photos, taking guests on a journey down memory lane.
A total of 12 draft beer options, some available year-round and others rotating seasonally, as well as refreshing frozen beverages, such as frosé and frojito, will be served daily. Some of the food items available to pair with the beer and cocktails selection include a Mediterranean sampler, fresh fruit and other snack options.
