Best bar where everyone knows your name: RESERVOIR BAR

Best bar where everyone knows your name

Sometimes you really do wanna go where everyone knows your name, and where they’re legitimately glad you came. Such is the case at Ybor City’s Reservoir Bar. A locals hangout and true dive bar, it attracts an eclectic crowd that ranges from attorneys to folks in the service industry. Friendly bar staff welcome you with a warm smile and serve up good drinks at a fair price, and there’s a strong possibility you’ll strike up conversations at the pool table or the bar and leave with what could very well be a lifelong friend. I’m not sure what’s in the air there (besides secondhand smoke), but it’s magical. —Kelly Knaggs
