Two bars at Tampa's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino are back in business. After undergoing some extensive renovations, Jubao Palace Noodle Bar and Center Bar have reopened to Hard Rock guests and the public.

Popularity and business volume ultimately led the Hard Rock team to expand Jubao Palace from 16 seats to 44. Adjacent to the Asian Table Games pit, the dining spot now features an upscale look and open kitchen, plus an updated menu to highlight the traditional flavors of one-plate Cantonese and Vietnamese dishes.

With a primo location on the heart of the casino floor, the newly designed Center Bar offers 12 TVs for sports fans and 17 slot machines lining its bar surface — not to mention memorabilia from music legends like Beyoncé and David Bowie.

The sophisticated hangout's 2,266 square feet of space also includes 90 seats, and beverage options include both cocktails and wine on tap, beer and various spirits.

Center Bar is open 24/7 Sunday through Thursday and closed from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Hours for Jubao Palace are 11:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. Sunday.
