Editorial reviews from the web (3)

Considered something of a dive—but a lovable one—by a loyal and young local following that ranges from esteemed jurists to nose-ring-wearing night owls, the Hub is known for strong drinks and a jukebox that goes well beyond the usual.

Bar Review: The Hub

The Hub off of Franklin Ave. in South Tampa is known for their generously poured alcoholic beverages. “If you come in and order a double, you’re just going to get the same drink for twice the price,” said Christen, The Hub’s bookkeeper and bartender, and she sure meant it!

A gem in the classic dive tradition, the Hub's been quenching locals' thirst for 50 years now.

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...

I'll disagree with the snobby other posts. You don't go to the Hub if you are looking for upscale. The part that makes The Hub so great is that its so downscale, its fashionably chic. True, you...

What's not to like about the hub bar? I have to admit I've stopped in here on more than a few occasions, for various reasons. It depends on the time of day weather or not you can have an actual...

I disagree with other reviewers who say The Hub has no atmosphere. The Hub has a unique atmosphere, unchanged and perhaps uncleaned since 1946. It's the cheap yet strong drink, cash only,...

The Hub and package store is the ultimate dive bar. And I mean it's a dive! However it is well known for its very strong drinks. The crowd on the weekends is as mixed as you can get and lacks the...

I walked in at around noon on a Wednesday to a smoke-filled bar with guys with tattoos bashing Obama and talking about conflict in the Middle East. The bartender approached me, with most of her...

Business description (6) view all

Hub Bar Inc is located at 719 N Franklin St in Tampa and has been in the business of Liquor Stores since 1949.

Bars: Excuse the pun, but this classic dive has been the "hub" of Tampa's drinking scene since 1949. While a lot has changed since the early days when fancy clothes were worn and local judges were regulars, a lot has stayed the same. Strictly for the over 21 crowd, the Hub is famous for their potent mixed drinks and they don't serve bottom shelf liquor. For entertainment they have a jukebox...

Bar & Package Store in Downtown Tampa

Tampa's hub of the dive bar scene. This place serves up strong drinks and the best of low-scale atmospheres. The hub is the center of the day and night time drinking scene in downtown Tampa. Don't be surprised to find daytimers stop by for a lunchtime or happy hour buzz. And when all the St. Pete bars close, the Tampa crowd heads there for the last call of the night.
