Already set to house an extensive food and drink lineup, the Midtown Tampa development will soon be home to The Hall on Franklin’s second location.

Tampa Heights’ Hall on Franklin opened three years ago as the area’s first collaborative, up-scale food hall and dining experience. Now, founder Jamal Wilson has plans for a new site, “The Hall at Midtown,” set to open in early 2021.

Located at the end of Midtown Drive, below The Loft and visible from the Himes Avenue entrance, the 8,000-square-foot site will be the largest food and beverage establishment at Midtown Tampa, housing more than 300 seats and a 1,200-square-foot outdoor patio. Also in store for The Hall at Midtown is all-day service, a private dining room and a digital golf driving lane.

As for the food, each eatery within the hall is set to represent an individual dining concept and a curated menu of items that “can be mixed and matched to suit any craving,” a press release reads. Restaurant concepts will be announced closer to the hall’s opening. 

“Our philosophy has always been to create a level of inclusiveness that has never been seen in Tampa,” Wilson said. “Our group of owners all come from different walks of life, races and orientations, and we have different views on food. That is reflected in the guests that come through our space, and now we want to create a space at Midtown for people of all walks of life.” 

Developed by Bromley Companies, Midtown has also announced so far a Shake Shack, BellaBrave New World Trattoria, Burtons Grill & Bar, True Food Kitchen, Joffrey’s Coffee Tea Cafe and a new restaurant by chef Chris Ponte. The Hall at Midtown will act as an onsite amenity space for tenants of Midtown Tampa’s first two office buildings, The Loft and Midtown One.

“The Hall at Midtown, with Jamal’s plans to bring together top culinary experts under one roof, will add tremendous diversity to Midtown’s foodie-centric offerings,” said Bromley Companies CEO Nicholas Haines. “We see The Hall serving as a social hub within Midtown, perfect for casual dinners and lively happy hour gatherings.”
