Kelly at Tiny Tap Tavern

Show up just a few times, and Tiny Tap night bartender Kelly will have memorized both your name and beverage of choice. She’s a friendly woman quick to listen to your woes or engage in a conversation ranging from cult movies to geopolitics. Kelly’s also a music buff who handpicked the CDs for the Tiny Tap’s estimable jukebox. But remember, if you misbehave, the little gal behind the bar will throw your ass out, which only adds to her appeal. 2105 W. Morrison Ave., Tampa, 813-254-3872
