Tampa’s Nightlife Hub
Known as Tampa’s Latin Quarter, historic Ybor City is the place to go for a lively night out during your bachelorette weekend. With its cobblestone streets lined with bars, restaurants, and jazz clubs, you and the bridesmaids will have no shortage of spots to dance, dine, and enjoy celebratory cocktails.
Some top picks for your Ybor City bachelorette bar crawl include:
Soho Saloon: With flashback décor from the roaring 20s, this speakeasy-style bar and lounge is a hip spot for craft cocktails. Sip a martini in a private VIP booth or hit the dance floor. Prana Coffee Yerba Mate Lounge: Fuel up with espresso drinks at this café before hitting the town. Prana also serves empanadas, arepas, and other Latin bites.

Situated in an ornate, Spanish-style building, this family-owned eatery opened in 1905 and serves classic Cuban-American cuisine.
A charter bus rental drops your crew off right in the heart of Ybor’s entertainment district, so you can easily walk between hot spots like these all night long.
