As the time nears for the new semester of college to begin many college age guys and gals will be looking for the best spots to hang out with other college kids.
The top 3 college hang outs around the Tampa Bay area that seem to always have a huge following of college kids are MacDintons, The Dubliner, and The Castle. The following will give you a little information on each, in no particular order of preference.
(1) MacDintons located on South Howard on Tampa is a hot spot for a few reasons, and one of them is the fact that their kitchen doesn't close until midnight!http://www.macdintons.com/SoHo-Tampa MacDintons is also famous for all the sports events you can watch live there and the daily drink specials.
(2) The Dubliner is located on W Azeele St in Tampa and has 4 bars and 44 beers on tap. The outside patio area is covered and has a real feel of an Irish Pub. The Dubliner has some of the best bar food around, with lots of yummy choices. http://www.thedublineririshpub.com/southtampa/index.html
(3) The Castle is located at N 16th St in Tampa. http://www.castleybor.com/The_Castle/Home.html The Castle has a different crowd type on different nights of the week. The Goth night at The Castle always seems to have a crowd and a line stretching around the sidewalk to get in. The bar at The Castle is like a scene reminiscent of the movie Blade.
