THE ORIGINAL INDEPENDENT BAR WAS OPENED IN 2005 WITH A SIMPLE MANTRA:

“INDEPENDENT BIERES, VINS, MUSIC & THOUGHT.”

FOUNDED ON A VISION TO SUPPORT NON-COMMERCIAL CRAFT PRODUCTS, INDEPENDENT MUSIC, AND TO ENCOURAGE & INSPIRE A SENSE OF COMMUNITY AMONG OUR PATRONS, THE INDEPENDENT TAMPA’S OUTDOOR BIERGARDTEN & INDOOR HANDMADE CEDAR WOOD BAR ARE OPEN TO ALL.

 The Independent is proud to have been a pioneer of the craft beer movement in the Tampa Bay area and the future of craft beer has never been better. Along with those that venture to seek both classic and new tastes in the current craft beer renaissance the Independent continues to be one-step-ahead, offering rare and unique beers and wines from around the world, as well as a cafe’ open daily where we serve quality, “Best Of The Bay” award-winning European full café fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
 The Tampa “Indie,” in historic Seminole Heights has 14 taps that rotate daily to ensure a fresh and ever-changing draft selection alongside our hand-picked selection of more than one hundred fifty bottles to choose from, featuring amazing world class offerings alongside the finest in American brewing. The friendly, knowledgeable staff at the Independent strives to make craft beer accessible to everyone. Ask, and they will gladly help you navigate through the eclectic tap and bottle lists.
 The Independent is a frequent host of brewery launch parties and other craft beer and wine events, where one can often mingle with the actual brewery/winery owners in attendance from across the country or across the globe. Local brewers and top craft beer industry people can be found at the Indie daily, discussing the newest beer trends and imbibing their drink of choice.
 Be sure to check our Event Calendar for upcoming special events with influential breweries from around the world, and also weekly no-cover live music shows with award winning local and national touring musicians. In 2017 The Independent continues to raise the bar & glass for the ever-changing craft beer culture.
