Over the past couple of months two new LGBT Clubs have opened in GaYBOR, both raising the entertainment bars to new levels! The GaYBOR T-Dance at Barbarella’s is now 1 month old and packing them in every Sunday. This “One of A Kind” club has fun indoor and outdoor bars and the upstairs is a huge roof top open air club. Every Sunday there are fantastic DJs, hunky dancers, drag queens, celebrity hosts/ entertainers and sun worshipping dancers. It is sooo much fun in the sun! Directly behind the club is FREE Sunday Parking in the 1/2 block city lot! The doors open at 5 p.m. every Sunday with great drink prices. Liquid Tampa should have been called the ever-changing-experiencing bar. Opening daily at 4 p.m., it is a fun neighborhood Happy Hour with a most interesting view of 7th Ave. As the sun sets the hot men come out and lose their clothes. Many of these guys also bare it all at “The Men of Liquid @ SKIN” once a month. The all star cast of DJs reads as the Who’s Who in the music world. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights there are special event parties that have been WOW! Toss in drag queens, club kids and local celebrities with a mixture of all ages and you have a great time! Add these two new clubs together with the nine others already open in GaYBOR/Ybor City and suddenly the Ybor City City slogans “Flavored to suit any Taste” and “Taste the may Flavors of Ybor City” take on a whole new meaning.
The owners of Row Boat Mediterranean Cuisine on the corner of 8th Ave. and 15th Street have opened “The R- Bar” next door. The bar is divided into two sections. In the font is a long welcoming full liquor main bar. Through the large arch into the back section there are small intimate tables and a fun stage area that will be hosting bands and entertainers. On many nights in the adjoining Row Boat Restaurant there are exotic belly dancers. We are sure they will have a lot of samba and creativity with the new stage.
After some major renovations, Carne Chophouse will be opening this week! Located at 1536 E. 7th Ave in the former L’ Olivier location, this steakhouse is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. The restaurant is new but the owners and operators are familiar faces. Currently they also own and operate Bernini’s, Green Iguana & Willy’s Hot Dogs all in Ybor City.
