5 Hot Bars Near Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida
1. Ferg’s Live
If you’re looking for the full sports bar experience then Ferg’s Live is the place to be. Located at 490 Channelside Dr, Tampa, FL 33602, patrons rank this bar as a solid four out of five stars. Just across from the arena, you will find plenty of good eats, draft beer, and cocktails for those of you who like a little more sophistication with your drink. Bar games and live music will capture your attention while you throw back a few cold ones. Not sure what food to grab while you’re there? Reviewers recommend waffle fries and a big juicy cheeseburger if you’re at a loss or if you’re looking for something a little lighter, go for the chicken sandwich or chicken caesar salad. Ferg’s is certainly more of a barroom atmosphere so if that’s not what you’re looking for, check out some of the other venues on the list. If, however, you’re looking for something a little lighter-hearted, less formal, and filled with TV screens streaming every game you can think of, then Ferg’s is just the spot for you.
