“Ybor City”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

If in the Tampa bay area, I would definitely spend a friday or saturday late afternoon or night here lots of great food and drinks to be had, walk up and down 7th street see some old city sites, watch cigars rollers at work, stop in unique shops, and listen to all the music. enjoy the crowd!

“for a younger crowd”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I would have loved this place several years ago when I was younger. They do have some great restaurants and clubs but this place is geared toward a younger crowd.

“New Years Fun! And anyother day!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Ybor is the place to be. I love this atmosphere because its a long strip of fun fun fun! You don't have to go to a particular club or hangout, you can walk the strip with friends and have a good time. The restaurants and shops are awesome!

“Great Restaurants and Great Entertainment”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We meet up with our children at least twice a year and take in the great jazz bands and bars in Ybor City as well as one of the most entertaining restaurants in Tampa Bay - The Acropolis - Don't miss this one if you are dining in Ybor City - you will not be dissatisfied. Opa ! !

“Step back in time...”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Walking around YBor City it was a treat to visit the old shops and watch the "Cigar Rollers" at work as we walk by..Take the time, visit the shops, ride the street cars and meet the people..Glad we did..
