Calling all foodies, wine enthusiasts and music lovers!

This weekend the Epicurean Hotel is proud to sponsor the 2015 Gasparilla Music Festival(GMF). We want to give you the inside scoop to help make your weekend in Tampa worthwhile.

First off and most importantly, being a preferred hotel partner with GMF, our guests will enjoy special discounted rates while staying at the Epicurean Hotel. Located in Tampa’s trendy Hyde Park historic district and across from the legendary Bern’s Steak House, our foodie-focused AAA Four Diamond hotel brings food lovers, winos and music lovers together for extraordinary culinary experiences (and it’s conveniently located just steps from Bayshore Boulevard and in the midst of the SoHo dining and entertainment district).

This year, GMF will take place in Curtis Hixon Riverfront Park and Kiley Garden Park on Saturday, March 7th and Sunday, March 8th and will feature musical acts from a wide variety of genres on several stages and also feature unique cuisine from some of Tampa Bay’s top restaurants.

American Indie Rock Band and GMF Headliner, Modest Mouse, a band led by singer and guitarist Isaac Brock will be rocking out and launching their tour right out of Tampa on Saturday night.  Musical artists also include, The Gaslight Anthem, MuteMath and a vast variety of local bands.

Whether you are a local looking for a little staycation or visiting Tampa this weekend for the music festival, there is plenty to indulge in. Also, you never know who you may see while visiting the Epicurean Hotel, Élevage or EDGE (the Epicurean’s super swanky and uber groovy rooftop bar). So, we encourage you to stop by before or after the festival to cure any or all cravings as it will be a hot weekend. There’s nothing better than sitting at EDGE with a refreshing cocktail after a long day of moving and grooving at GMF.

Tickets are SOLD OUT for GMF on Saturday, but Sunday tickets are still available. For more information about GMF weekend please visit .

Culinary, culture and music collide in Tampa. Cultivate your senses and join us at the Epicurean Hotel for an unforgettable weekend!
