About Us

The Hub Bar & Package

If The Hub is famous for one thing aside from the historical relevance and essential ambience, it is the drinks.

In 1949 The Hub opened as a piano cocktail lounge, hosting a veritable “who’s-who” of downtown Tampa’s elite. Judges, attorneys and bankers mingled with boxing champions and mob bosses, creating a mysterious, eclectic atmosphere. Located at 719 N. Franklin Street, adjacent to historical Tampa Theatre, the aptly-named Hub still exudes that unique, funky ambience.

The Hub is nationally known for its freely-poured, top-shelf drinks, and a “Hub drink” in local speak is synonymous with being a good, strong drink at a remarkably reasonable price. These drinks, combined with its honest charm, no-nonsense bartenders and the best jukebox around, have garnered The Hub critical recognition over the years. Adding to its popularity is the fact that The Hub is the ONLY package store in all of downtown Tampa.

For over 60 years, The Hub has been the meeting place for people of all backgrounds, accounting for its success, longevity and well-earned name. EVERYONE is welcome, and EVERYONE knows The Hub!

I have been frequenting The Hub for years and it's still the BEST bar ever! The first time I took my friend Andrew to The Hub, he fell in love with the place. He said it was like stepping into a totally different dimension. Skooter is the best bartender and has been working there for over 17 years... ask for him and tip well! Watch out because the mixed drinks will knock you right off your feet before you know it. Enjoy!
My title says it perfectly. The Hub has that great dive bar feel and atmosphere. The drinks are the strongest anywhere, the jukebox is packed with the best mix of music, the bartenders are totally cool and now to top it all off there is a hot dog guy out front on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night with the best freaking hot dogs I have ever had - as if the place couldn't get better. Now it has it all!!! Love Love Love the HUB!!
