M. Bird

If you’re looking for a craft cocktail, a delicious appetizer, and amazing views and vibes, M.Bird is the place for you. I love M.bird so much because it is a great place to get away from the crowds at Armature Works. My go-to order is the Moscow Mule and Spicy Hummus. Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. 

If you want more than a Moscow Mule & hummus, don’t worry, they have plenty to choose from. Outside of craft cocktails, M.Bird has wine, beer, seltzers and more. There is something for everyone to enjoy. They also have shareables, handhelds, bowls, and sweets!

You can either reserve a table overlooking the Hillsborough River and take in the skyline of our city (which I highly recommend), grab a table last minute, or just head to the bar as I do with my friends. It’s the perfect place for an outing in Tampa Bay.
