The Bamboo Club was tired. Serving typical Asian fusion, it was frequently empty despite the gigantic space and phenomenal location. The British invasion of The Pub is a welcome change, featuring the most dramatic interior redesign of any venue in Tampa this year. Authentic details with a twist and an attention-grabbing behemoth of a bar grab your attention. Add kilts galore, authentic British pub food, and a unique “Pour Your Own Beer Wall,” and you’ve got the most unique spot at International Plaza. 2223 N.
