Epicurean Thanksgiving DinnerAre you ready to Awaken Appetites Unknown this weekend at one of Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Hotel in Florida? We have many events we’re thankful for at the Epicurean Hotel this week, weekend and beyond!

Epicurean Thanksgiving Dinner
Thursday, November 24, (11 am-10 pm)
Two-time James Beard Foundation Best Chef South semi-finalist, Chad Johnson, has crafted a bountiful menu with apropos sides and desserts to properly elevate your holiday experience. And, yes it also caters to kids 12 and under too! Rethink the massive preparation, endless hours of clean-up, the enormous anxiety associated with “the feast” and leave it all up to our team. $45 per person (ask for seconds—we consider it a compliment!) and $15 Petit Epicurean (12 & under). Reservations are highly recommended! Reserve your spot on Open table or call 813-999-8726.

Black Friday
Friday, November 25, (12 a.m.–11:59 p.m.)
Calling all Black Friday shopping fanatics! Élevage is serving up their weekend “Brunch like Bacchus” a day early, just for you! Take a break from the hustle and refuel. And while you’re with us, make sure to check out our Black Friday offers here!

That’s right, thanks to Hyde Park Village, we’ve expanded our fleet of custom cruisers to include ultra-cool Electra bikes! Check out the SoHo neighborhood map here and cruise through all your holiday shopping.

New Hours at EDGE
You’ll fall in love with rooftop views on EDGE, which is now open 7 days a week. 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 uniquely hand-crafted cocktails and artisanal spirits on the edge of your expectations. NOTE: Élevage will not offer happy hour on Thanksgiving Day, and EDGE will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Happy Hour: Every day from 3–7 pm: Élevage Bar
Stop in at the Élevage Bar, say hi to Roger, and enjoy four of the happiest hours in SoHo 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: though the menu may change, but the prices will stay the same. Isn’t it time you elevated your Happy Hour expectations?
