Top Shelf Sports Lounge
More than a sports bar, Top Shelf Sports Lounge is a hat-trick of food, drinks, and actual ice skating.
Be a part of the team at Top Shelf Sports Lounge. This fan favorite sports bar, located inside of the Florida Hospital Center Ice rink, is the ultimate restaurant for players and fans with a taste for all-star food and drinks. Whether you’re hopping off the ice, catching the big game on one of their 15 TV’s, or dining with friends and family, Top Shelf hosts a grand slam menu and specials that make will make everyone feel like a winner.
Top Shelf Sports Lounge pitches a menu unlike your run of the mill sports bar. While offering classics like their Tender Bolt chicken strips, wings, nachos, and quesadillas, the possibilities are really out of bounds. Transport slightly south with their signature Ybor Eggroll made of mojo pork, ham, pickles, salami, mustard sauce, and smoked Gruyere cheese. Pay homage to Canadian hockey stars with The Canuck, old-fashioned Poutine with gravy and white cheddar cheese curds or try one of their other unique Poutine dishes. Snack on black bean hummus or Bruddah Ray’s Ahi Tuna Stack, a starter consisting of marinated ahi tuna atop avocado, house mango salsa, and citrus slaw paired with ponzu sauce and wonton strips.
Take a time out to test-drive Top Shelf’s drink roster. The beer list is extensive for fans of Lagers, IPA’s, porters, ambers, and reds with 11 of their 20 beers on tap. Drink locally with 81Bay Brewing’s Lightning Lager or Sun Viking IPA. Grab a cider or wheat beer if that’s more you’re game, or play it safe with brands like Sam Adams and Bud Light. Consider switching teams and sip on a red or white wine while you watch the big Lightning game.
Wednesday’s can’t be beat with 75-cent wings and $5 craft beers after 7:30 p.m. On Friday’s flip a coin to reach victory with 50% off your drinking bill and 20% off appetizers. Is it a Tampa Bay Lightning game day? Celebrate with $3 Lightning shots, $4 Coors Light, $5 Jack Daniels, and $5 nachos. Skate by their website for even more daily specials like happy hour Monday through Friday from 4 to 7p.m., and every night from 10p.m. to close.
Top Shelf’s competitive location makes it the coolest place in town. Get a work out at one of Florida Hospital Center Ice’s public skating sessions before the big meal, or if you’re more one to watch, see a hockey game or a figure skating practice from behind the glass. Top Shelf is the premiere sports lounge with first place food and front row live sports entertainment, minus the price of a major league ticket.
