Whiskey Park

Whiskey Park wins hands down for meeting the following criteria:

1. Area to ply your game. Covered in spades. There´s a huge central bar for your prowling, at least one other peripheral bar, an outdoor deck, pool tables for the competitive, and still enough room to move, dance or run away.

2. Comfort level for both parties. The dress code is moderate (our reporter got in wearing Chuck Taylors and a bowling shirt, but apparently you can´t wear a hat), and the liberal amounts of foliage make for a comfortable, living room feel.

3. Ability to chat up your target. The music is kept low, almost as background noise more to cover any lulls in conversation. Distractions can be avoided by luring your prey to the quieter, more intimate back bar.

4. Desirability. Holy crap, the clientele here are freaking hot. Be warned, though: they do travel in packs.

Whiskey Park, 720 S. Howard Ave., Tampa, 813-259 9669.
