  • Seven on-site bars and restaurants
  • Luxurious spa and fitness center

Drinks & Dining at The Tampa EDITION Hotel

The Edition is bringing in the heavy hitters for food and beverage. The culinary team is led by Chef John Fraser, who, not to brag, has Michelin Stars under his belt.

The concepts lean heavily to the Mediterranean with Lilac, a Greek and Turkish-influenced restaurant, an Italian Trattoria dubbed Market at Edition, and Azure Mediterranean restaurant – a gorgeous rooftop, poolside setting sure to impress.

Drinks and small bites are available at some very cool poolside daybeds at Azure. Fraser is also at the helm of the poolside and lobby bars. Rounding out the options at the Tampa Edition are Arts Club, a cocktail bar with light bites and an intimate live performance venue, and Punch Room, a gorgeous cocktail bar with a Caribbean flare.
