It's got it all 8/12/2008

My title says it perfectly. The Hub has that great dive bar feel and atmosphere. The drinks are the strongest anywhere, the jukebox is packed with the best mix of music, the bartenders are totally cool and now to top it all off there is a hot dog guy out front on thursday friday and saturday night with the best freaking hot dogs I have ever had. As if the place couldn't get better. Now it has it all!!! Love Love Love the HUB!! Pros: Stiff drinks, great jukebox, cool bartenders, the hot dog guy out front!! Cons: I always need a cab or DD. is that bad? more

Trashy and Fabulous 3/7/2008

I never understood the attraction to dive bars until I stepped into the Hub. It is the greatest dive bar--trashy and fabulous. It has the best and the worst jukebox in the world, depending on your mood. And it is a time warp--it doesn't matter if I go in at 7 p.m. or 1 a.m., I am probably going to be there until closing time. Definitely THE place to end up after a night out. It has great drinks, awesome bartenders (who can take care of themselves...), and the craziest mix of people I have ever seen. Bring sanitizer and your drinking hat--and either a dd or cab money, 'cause you'll probably need it. Pros: Bartenders with an attitude, drinks that'll kick you in the teeth, and the lights are nice and low... Cons: Avoid touching anything in the bathrooms... more

The Best 10/31/2006

Nasty, dirty, dingy, smoky, with stiff drinks. In other words, the BEST. Gotta love the atmosphere. Scooter is the man. You'll never know who'll show up in there. Definately worth going to. Pros: Service, drinks, prices Cons: Long drive home to Seminole more

Strongest drinks in town 7/19/2006

I have been frequenting the Hub for years and it's still the BEST bar ever! The first time I took my friend Andrew to the Hub, he fell in love with the place. He said it was like stepping into a totally different dimension. Scooter is the best bartendar and has been working there for over 17 years...ask for him and tip well. Watch out because the mixed drinks will knock you right off your feet before you know it. Enjoy! more

Same great Hub 3/16/2005

The Hub may have changed locations, but it hasn't lost its classic dive bar feel, even if the bathrooms are, sadly, now absent of graffiti. Drinks are still strong enough to kick your butt, the jukebox is still stocked with everything from Patsy Cline to the Pixies, and the regulars are as grizzled as always. The new checkerboard floor is hideous, but otherwise, The Hub is still downtown Tampa's best bet for low-key cocktails. Pros: Strong, cheap drinks, Casual atmosphere more

  • In Short
    Originally a combination package store and cocktail lounge, this watering hole catered to society's high end--including judges, attorneys and even Mafia bosses. Today, the Hub's become a Tampa institution, attracting everyone from politicians by day to the hip blue-collar set by night. Never start a night here with plans to go elsewhere: If the stiffest drinks in town don't ground you, the jukebox stocked with CDs you thought no one else listened to will.
