A great place for the college crowd is Ozona Blue. From the moment you arrive at Ozona Blue you will feel as if you are at a special spot. As you drive in you will see the boats in the marina. Once you park and start to walk in the front entrance you are surrounded by palms and plants that give a tropical air to the place.
They have valet parking which is nice in bad weather.
The entrance way has a hostess and little couches where you can sit if there is a waiting time for a table.
If you go right you will be in the very trendy bar area that actually has an inside and outside area. The outside area has little tiki hut type tables around a long bar. You are overlooking the marina and the boats. Down a few steps is the pool area. That’s right pool area! There is a very large pool and hot tub. You can have a few drinks or lunch while you swim and sun bath! This is a huge hit with the upper classman ,college aged kids looking for a special place to get some sun and good food and sip on some great Sangria.
On the weekends this outside area has a live band playing and they have a large dance floor area too.
In the spring and summer Ozona Blue seems to always be a buzz with laughter and chatter around in the pool.
You can also dock your boat here if you have one.
They have a really good menu for dining either inside or outside. They also have a full liquor bar and fairly decent wine selection.
You can find Ozona Blue at 125 Orange Street, in Palm Harbor. Their # is (727) 789-4540
The atmosphere and dress are casual. They have two crowd types and the livelier one is usually in the outside area. Although that being said, the two areas seem to flow seamlessly into one another. This a great place in the day for families.
