“Favorite part of Tampa! Good nightlife and great food too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

South Tampa consists of some great restaurants such as Bella's, Bern's, Ceviche, and The Rack just to name a few. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars within walking distance. I recently stayed at the Hyde Park Hotel where I got engaged, so spent 2 wonderful days walking around South Tampa with my love :) The hotel is the perfect location if you want to be able to walk to many of the establishments on Howard Ave. Some of the best bars are McDinton's, World of Beer, The Rack, and more. Old Hyde Park Village is right there as well, which is where you can find some great shopping or a perfect glass of wine at the Wine Exchange. Wander around and see what you find!

South Tampa has everything you want: great restaurants, bars shopping and entertainment. Rarely are there traffic problems. A big city feel.

“Restaurant precinct okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We asked the taxi to choose the best Asian restaurant.
It was okay but lacked any sparkle on a week night with staff sitting around buffing their nails.

“Trendy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Trendy South Tampa is the place to see and be seen. It's full of young hipsters as well as the Tampa gentry. There are trendy restaurants, bars, and cafes. Bern's steakhouse is a must if you have never been. President's dine here! The dessert room is a great way to end the evening. At Hyde Park Village you can stroll the shops including the anchor stores Pottery Barn and William-Sonoma.
