BEST ROOFTOP BAR: Fly Bar & Restaurant

There may not be a lot of competition in this category, but Fly’s spectacular outdoor drinkin’ and dinin’ spot is still worth a nod. Where else can you nosh on tender sliders and spectacular fries — bourbon in hand — while taking in the downtown Tampa skyline under a starry, post-midnight sky? Considering the paucity of options, Fly is the destination for anyone stuck in the business district after dark. 1202 N. Franklin St., Tampa, 813-275-5000, flybarandrestaurant.com
