Where to Recover in Tampa Bay on New Year’s Day


We know that many Tampa Bay residents and visitors plan on going out on New Year’s Eve to Celebrate. While the night is always a lot of fun, the effects of a late night and one too many Champaign toasts might take for a long New Year’s Day to recover. We have a few suggestions on where to help recover from that New Year’s Eve party around Tampa Bay.

The Soho Backyard, South Tampa SoHo District – Bloody Mary Drinks are a New Year’s Day tradition for many. At The Soho Backyard, they twist this favorite up by adding skewers of pure comfort. From Crab Cakes to Sliders, you can load your drink up and start the afternoon right. 

CASK Social Kitchen, South Tampa SoHo District – This new guy on the block is sure to be a local favorite. The appetizers pair well with the drinks and the large outside patio is a great spot to people watch. 
Pinky’s Diner, South Tampa – Another South Tampa favorite, the best upscale diner food around. Be sure to get here early as the small space fills up quick.

EATS American Grill, South Tampa – How can the meal go wrong when they start you off with free house-made chips and dip? It can’t! The endless burger selection and other comfort offerings are sure to please any taste.

Taco Bus, Tampa – This local chain is popular and open late. Find a location that is open 24/7 and that means you can stop here after your NYE party! 

The AVENUE eat/drink, Downtown Saint Petersburg – The burgers rock here as well as their large assortment of drinks. Don’t forget the bacon appetizer we reviewed, it’s a hit!

Lenny’s Restaurant, Clearwater – Diner food at it’s best, the menu and portions are both huge. The duck bacon is a ‘must-try’. 

Dunedin Brewery, Dunedin – Keep the party going with this local brew-bub in Historic Dunedin. The food is a nod to the bar, but we found lots of unique dishes here. The diet starts tomorrow. 

Fred’s Market Restaurant, Riverview/Brandon – At Fred’s, you will find an all-you-can-eat country feast. It’s all about the comfort food here.
