Happy Hour at the new XYZ Bar at the ALOFT Hotel - Downtown Tampa

The XYZ bar inside the Aloft hotel has finally opened this past week.  I ventured over there after a near by Meetup ended to check this place out with other Meetup folks and we loved it so much, I just had to have a Meetup here ASAP!

This place is so beautifully decorated and right on the water. You will not be disappointed when you see this place and all it has to offer.  The bar is on the first floor out back right on the water. You can sit inside or out and enjoy the spacious atmosphere.

Their happy hour last until 7pm with certain drinks half off.  They offer a full liquor bar including local beer selections.

Parking:  There is free street parking after 6pm.  The hotel has valet parking as well.

    I'd really like to go to this, but I don't have a car. Would anyone be willing to give me a ride?
    Thanks,
    Denise

      Denise, if you're feeling adventurous, try out PSTA to get to the XYZ. You can take the #4 straight up 4th St to Gateway Mall, and then take the 100X over to Tampa. Last 100X heads back to St. Pete at 6:50pm, and the XYZ is only 1/3 mile walk from the bus stop (Kennedy and Marion). Check out PSTA.net for details. I'll be on the return trip, but will bike up from work in Tampa so can't join you for the trip from St. Pete.

      The only problem w/that is it's a really long and unenjoyable way to go for maybe 20/30 minutes at the venue before I'd have to leave to come back home. I take the bus everywhere cause I don't have a car and going to Tampa is very labor intensive. And because the bus comes back so early, I can't really go to anything that's in the evening. I can't get back home. The 100X is really only geared to the 9 to 6ers.

    Weather is suppose to be nice on Thursday night.

    Just as a side note, the hotel does not have a parking lot but they do offer valet parking. There is also free street parking after 6pm but you will have to walk a couple blocks to get to the hotel.
