The Florida Aquarium's outdoor bar is now called 'Corona Cove'

Thankfully, there will be other beers on tap.


Taking your kid to the Florida Aquarium can be a drag, but thankfully, the joint realized that another way to get adults in the door without a stroller is by serving up booze. Now, thanks to a new partnership with Corona, The Florida Aquarium's outdoor bar got a facelift and moniker: "Corona Cove." The bar offers waterfront views to aquarium guests who need to get their buzz on before navigating the exhibits. 

According to a press release, "Corona has committed to donate $1 for every case of Corona Extra cans sold in Hillsborough County during the busy summer months of June and July. Corona will bring this program to life through point of sale at bars, restaurants, and displays at retail, all supported with digital and traditional media."

And you don't have to drink a Corona either. Other beers, including the aquarium's "Best Dressed Bird Blond Ale" collaboration with Coppertail, will also be on tap.

Want a first look at Corona Cove? The bar is serving up pours during normal hours, which are 9:30 a.m.- 5 p.m. seven days a week.
