Tips:

Find a new favorite bar or cafe

If you've got a first date planned, it's best to pick a venue that will make you feel relaxed and happy - all the better to focus on your date. Felicitous Coffee on 51st is the perfect choice. A truly friendly spot with bright, 60s-inspired decor, you'll feel at home from the minute you walk in. Make sure to order the Floridian - coffee with a hint of orange, it's like drinking sunshine.

If you want something stronger, head for Fly Bar. The rooftop setup is really romantic - think great views and glowing string lights. The craft cocktail list here is among Tampa's best, and the wine list is delicious - and they also have a fantastic food menu (ideal for soaking up those cocktails!). It's all you need for a top Tampa date night.

Have a Romantic Beach Date

Making the most of Tampa dating means making the most of the beaches and the Florida sunshine. Take a drive with your date out to Clearwater Beach: come sunset, there are few dating spots in the Tampa Bay Area that are more romantic! One great date here and who knows where it’ll lead? You might even end up on Honeymoon Island, if you catch our drift!

When the sun goes down, head to a seafront bar or restaurant and continue the date there. With its popping colors and relaxed beachy vibe, Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is a Clearwater institution and the obvious choice if you fancy some of Tampa Bay’s best seafood. Kick back with your date, order a couple of the famous grouper sandwiches, and bond long into the night.

Try a truly Tampa date idea

Both art lovers? Tampa singles are really spoilt for choice when it comes to art museums and galleries. The Tampa Museum of Art is a great place to start – with something for everyone, you can both be sure to find a piece or two you’ll love here. Or, for something a little more surreal, the Dali Museum is a stunning feat of architecture, and a truly iconic venue for a memorable date. 

If you'd rather try an outdoor date idea, there are plenty of ways to reconnect with nature  in Tampa – why not go see the animals at the welcoming Lowry Park Zoo? For a more thrilling date, head out on the water - a cruise with The Tropics Boat Tour is the perfect way to see dolphins, wildlife, and of course - those beautiful Gulf sunsets.
