Amalie Arena hosts events like Disney on Ice and concerts from various artists, while Raymond James hosts music festivals and college football playoffs, along with NFL showdowns.
Adult-Only Tampa Outings
While family-friendly places are most of the venues on this list, we can’t leave out adult-only fun. These venues will have age restrictions starting at 18 years old, but most of the real fun starts with 21+ adults.
Hard Rock Casino
The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While those aged 18-20 are only allowed to play live Poker, visitors 21+ gets to enjoy the full benefits of the casino, including multiple watering holes for those who prefer an alcoholic beverage or two (just be sure to get a ride home!).

M. Bird At Armature Works
M. Bird is the word if rooftop bars are your preferred way to catch a view. The 21+ space is unique in that it is the rooftop of Armature Works, a large "mixed use" building, which features the Heights Public Market. The market is an open-seating concept home to a plethora of kitschy restaurants such as Empamamas, an empanada restaurant that serves the coveted Cuban Empanada, as well as Bake'n Babes, a dessert one-stop shop with shakes, brownies, and even a CBD-infused cookie. While the public market is all ages, and often has pups and toddlers basking in the shared outdoor space, M. Bird is the only 21+ spot at Armature Works.
M. Bird offers a wide range of cocktails to suit all tastes, with fun names like the Strawberry Moon, a gin-based beverage crafted to celebrate the spring season's final full moon, and the Cafecito, a rum beverage with cold brew for a tantalizing coffee-cocktail hybrid. Beverages aren't the sole piece of their menu, which boasts a bountiful brunch, and an everyday menu with a prosciutto sandwich and can't-miss truffle shoestring fries.
