My Favorite Spots For First Dates In Tampa Bay (That Will Get You Laid)

All of these locations are perfect spots for taking someone out that you want to get intimate with. You need to feast before you fuck! That’s my motto at least! Here are a few joints that I recommend checking out.

The Hyde Out – This fun and classy restaurant and lounge serves American Fusion cuisine and Sushi with some wonderful high-quality signature cocktails. They have fun events like ThrowBack Thursdays where DJs spin old school vinyl records and Wine Crush Wednesdays with weekly giveaways and ½ price bottles of wine. I frequently go stag on Wednesday just to meet drunk wives guzzling wine! Don’t judge me, it works like a charm and I hook up almost every single time.

Ciro’s Speakeasy and Supper Club – This is a speakeasy so it’s a bit old style but it’s super fun. You have to call for the latest password and gain access to this quaint, sexy, and discreet club.  Women will love it, I promise. Enter through a wooden door in a garden and choose from an elite list of handcrafted cocktails served by talented and experienced bartenders.

Improv in Centro Ybor – Nothing is more effective at easing the tension of a first date than tickling her funny bone. The best way to do that is to take her for dinner and a show at the improv and enjoy some good food and hilarious stand-up comedy.

Bern’s Steak House – This place is legit my favorite spot, hands down! It a historic local culinary delight that’s been open since 1956 with one of the largest wine collections in the world and a famous dessert room and wine cellar. Prime steaks are cut to order and the vegetables are grown locally. I’m talking out of this world beef.

Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant – A Spanish style restaurant featuring live flamenco performances, as well as, jazz and Latin pop music shows with dim lighting that’s perfect for a first date.

They also have a Happy Hour where you get special drink deals and 50% off pizza and calzones. I’ve even taken a local escort that I met in Tampa here once, LOL!
