Downtown Tampa’s Sparkman Wharf is adding three more new restaurants, including “The Battery,” a new concept from the owners of Seminole Heights popular C House.

Sparkman Wharf shared the news in a Tuesday press release, adding that popular South Tampa Japanese restaurant Noble Rice and Florida-based chain Burger-Fi would also open new restaurants at the outdoor food and beer garden. 

The latest expansion comes two weeks after other local favorites like 7th+Grove and Murph’s BBQ announced plans to join the Sparkman Wharf lineup.

A spokesperson for Sparkman Wharf told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that The Battery, a sister concept of C House, would open in this spring and that all three newly announced concepts will have standalone locations, not shipping containers.

A press release says that The Battery will be a 4,000-square-foot “a refined-yet-comfortable restaurant, bar, lounge and boutique event space” that’ll focus on fancy bourbon, wine and classic bites.

The Battery space will also have “a private dining room, full-service bar, outdoor seating and a to-go window for takeaway meals,” according to the release.
