Hooch and Hive

Drunk Camera Guy
Hooch and Hive in Tampa, Florida.
Brought to you by the same folks who built a cult following at since-shuttered Ybor City nightclub Czar, Hooch has a stage that is seeming only empty twice a week (maybe because it’s closed Mondays and Tuesdays). Normally appearing is its fairly regular Reggae and Soul Sunday music series, as well as album release parties for local rappers, songwriters, and touring bands looking for one of the best sound systems in Tampa. The full menu of above-and-beyond “bar food” and dozens of cocktails, beers on tap, and wine make this place worth it even if there’s not a band on stage.
