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…

About Us


Are you somebody who cares about the City of Tampa? Are you excited to hear about the new things coming? Looking for something new to do? Just looking to find out about some upcoming events? Then you found the right blog! Our sole goal here at Exploring Tampa is to ensure that you are aware about everything going on in this city and to show you all of the unique happenings you didn't know we had.

I know what you're thinking, "Mark, what makes you qualified to talk about Tampa?" That's easy! I'm a lifelong Tampa resident who has heard that "Tampa's a boring city" since I went to high school. I took a couple of years off before starting college, and once I got into college, I heard that same trite phrase. That's when it hit me. Tampa can't be that boring, can it? I have spent the last three years of my life dedicated to showcasing everything that Tampa has to offer. Things to do, cool events, local history. I have met with some of the most powerful people in the city to discuss the going ons in the city.



As stated above, my name is Mark and I am a lifelong Tampa resident. I am a current student at the University of South Florida and a graduate of Hillsborough Community College. My favorite neighborhood in Tampa is Seminole Heights and my favorite area to hang around in is Ybor City. If you watch my YouTube channel (shameless plug) you'll see both my girlfriend, Stormy, and high school friend, Chris, join me on my adventures.
