Ducky's: Sports Bar and Bowling Alley

I don't do a lot of reviews in this area. Lets fix that!

Mural, 2019
Opened in December of 2013 by Evan Longoria of (at the time) the Tampa Bay Rays baseball fame, Ducky's is an upscale sports bar located on Kennedy Blvd just outside of Downtown Tampa in a neighborhood that is called West Tampa. The idea was to bring a sports bar to the bustling area around the University of Tampa, and to provide a slightly different offering than anything you could find in the South Howard (SoHo) district. But that's not why you came here.

Mini Bowling, 2019
One other notable feature includes a mini bowling alley, perfect for small hands, children, or just someone too drunk to handle a real bowling ball (we've all been there). The bar has a nice outdoor patio, decent amount of indoor space, and a pretty crappy parking lot. You'll know you're at the right place when you spot the graffiti mural on the side of the building. There are TVs everyone showing the hottest sportsball game…

Snow on 7th: An Ybor Christmas Tradition

Coming to a Centro near you!


Christmas Tree in Centro Ybor, 2017

Halloween is officially over and it's now time to focus our attention on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the new year. Unfortunately, very little happens, event wise, for Thanksgiving. On the bright side, the holiday festivities start very early here in Tampa with the tree lighting happening in Centro Ybor on Wednesday. Mayor Buckhorn made a special appearance as did police chief Brian Dugan.

Children Enjoying The Tree, 2017

The annual Snow on 7th Parade will take place on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 6:00 pm. The event is family friendly and will feature Santa and Mrs. Clause as special guests, as well as providing free hot chocolate and candy canes to the little ones. We actually covered the Snow on 7th Parade on the Exploring Tampa YouTube Channel last year, located Here. For more information, visit Ybor City Online
