Are you ready to Awaken Appetites Unknown this weekend and beyond? We’re giving you the insider’s scoop for upcoming events at Epicurean Hotel and things to do in Tampa to whet your palette and your appetite.
NEW Art on EDGE
Last weekend during the 20th anniversary of Bern’s Winefest, we unveiled our newest surprise at EDGE, a custom mural by the artist Dalek. With 18-quarts of paint in-hand, Dalek created a one-of-a-kind public art piece that will be remembered for many years to come. Best known for his depiction of space and depth, Dalek uses simple techniques and flat colors to convey movement and energy. If you’ve already enjoyed Dalek’s mural at EDGE, head over to see Colors|Lines|Layers, his newest art collection exhibit at CASS Contemporary. And for those wanting an insider’s look into all the action, be sure to visit the CASS website to see an awesome video of the mural and what went into creating it.

Save the Date: Mother’s Day is April 14
Don’t forget Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Luckily you’ve got plenty of time to find something special to spoil your mom without visiting multiple places or an over-crowded mall. We’ve put together three unique gifts to give your mom this Mother’s Day here on a previous blog post (and you can find them all under one roof!).
New Cocktails, Same Great Sunset at EDGE Social Drinkery
Enjoy the cooler evening air all weekend long at Epicurean Hotel’s rooftop bar and social drinkery that’s unlike any other in Tampa. Kick back, relax and sip on the newest nine, must-try, hand-crafted cocktails and artisanal spirits on the EDGE of your expectations. With new handcrafted cocktails like the “slurring soccer mom” and the “side chick,” you’ll awaken appetites unknown and possibly develop a new alter ego. Warm up for Cinco de Mayo all month long, where you can cozy up to a seat at South Tampa’s only rooftop bar and enjoy a short rib quesadilla and Dos Equis for only $11 (5 to 10 p.m. daily).
Happy Hour: Everyday from 3–7 p.m. in Élevage Bar
Stop in at the Élevage Bar, and enjoy four of the happiest hours in South Tampa any day of the week! Featuring $3 beers, $5 cocktails, $5 wines by the glass and $5 appetizers. We keep the experience fresh and exciting by weekly curating the menu and selections at Chef Chad Johnson’s culinary discretion. Just remember: the menu may change, but the prices will stay the same. Isn’t it time you elevated your Tampa Happy Hour expectations?
