A Story By

From rooftops to speakeasies, there are no shortage of cocktail bars in Tampa Bay! If you’re looking for a new spot to enjoy a craft cocktail, then keep reading to see our list of the best cocktail bars in Tampa Bay. 

Cheers, Tampa Bay!

Sonder Social Club is Dunedin’s first craft cocktail bar! With it’s beautiful aesthetic and eclectic drink menu, this spot is a must visit. Our favorite cocktail is the Brown Derby, made with Old Grand-dad Bourbon, grapefruit, lemon, and honey. Monday is Locals Night – if you have a Dunedin, Palm Harbor, or Clearwater address, enjoy 20% off your bill from 6PM to midnight.

📍966 Douglas Ave., Unit 101, Dunedin, FL

Whiskey Exchange is the first Stock Market craft cocktail bar in Florida! Like the stock market, drink prices fluctuated with supply and demand. Known for their smoked old fashioned and extensive whiskey list, this spot is a must visit for all craft cocktails.

📍540 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Located on the second floor of Armature Works,  M.Bird offers tropical curated cocktails, sharable small plates, and breathtaking waterfront views of the Tampa cityscape. Our go-to cocktail is the “Afterthot,” a cheeky spritz made with Reyka vodka, Montenegro, Aperol, lemon, kiwi compound, and prosecco. 

📍1903 Market St., Tampa, FL 33602

At Mandarin Hide, their goal is to find the perfect drink for each guest’s preferences. This swanky, 1920’s vibe cocktail bar has over 450 different spirits and one of the largest bourbon, whiskey, and scotch selections in Tampa Bay, including rate and listed spirits not found anywhere else. We love going to Mandarin Hide on Tuesday’s for their Test Kitchen Tuesdays. Every Tuesday, a unique menu is created that offers $6 cocktails only available that night!

📍231 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Mandarin Heights is taking cocktails to new heights! Like their sister bar, Mandarin Hide, Mandarin Heights is craft cocktail bar focused on exceeding expectations. The unique interior and beautiful outdoor patio make this place a great spot to unwind and enjoy a craft cocktail. And don’t forget to take a picture in the bathtub when you visit!

📍5901 N. Florida Ave., Tampa, FL

Like their address, Pour Judgement offers 269 different unique, craft shots. Their menu includes shots made with all types of spirits from vodka to gin to whiskey and more. Our favorites were the Pop It, which was made with pop rocks, and the Regina George, which is Mean Girls inspired. Pour Jugement is the perfect spot to start your night off at!

📍269 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Located in Oxford Exchange is the Champagne Bar, a beautiful space for enjoying a glass or champange, rosé, and select cocktails. In partnership with Rifle Paper Co., custom illustrations created by Anna Bond are featured on their cocktail menu, along with a Rifle Paper Co. themed drink. This cocktail is our favorite, made with Rifle Paper Co. punch and topped Étoile Rosé champagne. The Champagne Bar is the ideal spot to grab cocktails before enjoying brunch!

📍420 W. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, FL 33606

The Rox Rooftop is like no other in Tampa Bay! Enjoy picture-perfect views of Tampa Bay while enjoying a cocktail. From the classics to uniquely crafted cocktails, the Rox Rooftop has it all. We love that this rooftop has indoor and outdoor seating, both with beautiful views.

📍2545 N. Rocky Point Dr., Tampa, FL 33607

CW’s Gin Joint is a throwback to a time when fine spirits were savored in a casual atmosphere that exceeded style, without pretentiousness. Like the name suggests, the Gin Joint is know for their selection of gins, but offers a complete menu of spirits and cocktails.

📍633 N. Franklin St., Tampa, FL 33602

Located behind an unassuming entryway on a side street in downtown St. Pete., the Saint speakeasy is like no other! The Saint invited you to confess life’s darkest sins and enjoy fine cocktails. Don’t forget to look up the sin to get in on their website or Instagram story!
