Tampa is a beast of its own. How long does it take walking around Tampa until you see a multi-millionaire and then not even a block away a 16 year old kid with his throat tattooed? I can tell you from my experiences, not very long. Its a multi-cultural type of place. Once of my absolute favorite spots to visit while I am in Tampa is The Bricks. Owned by the guys from Skatepark of Tampa, it is an awesome vibe with great aesthetic. Ybor city doesnt have the best reputation but because of places like The Bricks it is becoming more and more of a community that is great to visit. I think it has became one of my favorite parts of Tampa fairly quickly
They make great food, have a solid pour, and all around good dudes. Go tell them hi and support rad people doing great things in their community!
Try the “Bird & Pig”. You wont be disappointed.
