NOVA 535 Unique Event Space

A great place to have an event in Tampa Bay! Wonderful raw space with plenty of exposed brick, and a perfect courtyard for indoor-outdoor events. Plus full AV/lighting that you'll need for a wedding or something else.

Pros: Convenient location and everything you need for a terrific event space.

Cons: Can be a bit tricky to park, but it's only a block walk.

Reviewing the poker room only: It's really big, and the poker room is one of the best in the Southeast. Also, it's huge. Did I mention it's big? Also the snack bar is one of the best I've seen in a poker room.

Pros: Tons of places to play, lots of ABC poker is profitable at 2-5 and below.

Cons: $2 jackpot drop is lame sauce. Also let me turn my chair around even when I'm not getting a massage.

I mean by far the best place to eat in Tampa. Incredible food stalls, great dining, and one of the best spaces in Tampa! Indoor or outdoor, it's just a great place to dine, drink, and hang.

Pros: Amazing food, great space, gorgeous sunsets, delicious drinks.

Cons: I mean it's a bit pricey, but not so bad that you should ever miss it.

Love this place, but only when it's on Groupon. When you can get $60 for $30 or some other deal, it comes in at a very good price point. But the retail is a bit pricey for what you get: you can get in and out of Bern's a couple blocks away for the same number, and that place is a legend.

Pros: Great food, great bar, great atmosphere

Cons: Pricey without a deal

So yes you can get doughnuts and cupcakes anytime of day, but when they do weird stuff, BUY IT! Ice cream in a cone made of doughnut? Do it. Oatmeal cream pie the size of a tire? Get one. Sriracha toffee? Get there.

Pros: Besides everything being delicious and a friendly staff? How about a central location right off MacDill?

Cons: WARNING: it will make you fat. Do not go every day even though you'll want to.

It's a gorgeous location, but the drinks are just too expensive. In a city like Tampa, where there's a brewery on literally every corner, charging me $8 for a Jai Alai is crazy. And the mixed drinks would be fine at $10, if they were twice as big. Plus they aren't exactly friendly for what should be basically a tiki bar.

Pros: The gorgeous view of the Hillsborough River, amazing sunsets, an escape in the middle of downtown, walkable to Harbour Island.

Cons: Basically everything else. Which is a total shame because this should be one of the best hangout spots in the city.

Phenomenal pastas and pizzas, and a great atmosphere in a wonderful bar. $5 drinks at Happy Hour doesn't hurt either :)

Pros: Location, food, atmosphere. Can't really ask more for a slightly-upscale joint in Tampa's trendiest neighborhood.

Cons: Can be a bit of a pain to park, probably best to just valet.

A ton of beer served by knowledgeable people, and being outdoors on perfect Florida days is terrific.

Pros: Great beer, great happy hour, fun location.

Cons: When it rains or it's Florida Hot, no bueno (though it is covered).

The best Brazilian steakhouse I've ever tried, and I've been to a ton. Incredible meats, a salad bar with delights such as fresh mozzarella & charcuterie, and impeccable service. Absolutely worth every penny for an unforgettable meal.

Pros: The meats. Just get every version of beef and lamb they have. They are just divine.

Cons: That it's too close to my house, and I'm going to go there too much and get very fat. I love Bern's, but as an experience this is right up there.

Beautiful glass from a brilliant artist. Absolutely worth seeing when in St. Pete

Pros: Just a lovely place to take someone and appreciate the hand-blown glass.

Cons: Parking can be a pain.
