Probably one of the best parts about Florida: the beaches. Stretches of white sandy coastlines that overlook the crashing waves are already a treat alone but add bites, booze, and a place to kick off your shoes and you're in true paradise. All that is coming soon with a new tiki bar near Tampa.\nWhiskey Joes Bar & Grill made a name for themselves in Tampa, Miami, and Ft. Lauderdale, and they're about to bring their drinks with a view just a short drive away in Ellenton —right on the Manatee River.\nThe new location will be on the waterfront off of Trooper JD Young Bridge and Highway 301. Meander off the busy expressways and you'll find it at 5315 19th St E.\nWhile an opening date hasn't been officially announced just yet, the laidback location is expected to open sometime this spring in the month of March.\nWhat should you expect to find on your plate here?\nYou'll find a little bit of everything from bar bites like quesadillas, wings, and nachos to super seafood selections including crab cakes, gator bites, grouper tacos, oysters, and shrimp.\nYou can even get brunchy noms like waffles and sandwiches, or fill up for dinner on burgers, pasta, and pizzas!\nBaskets and apps are also available on the beachfront menu.\nView this post on Instagram Not your average Joe’s NACHOS🌶 #manateeriver #manatee #ellenton #whiskeyjoes #whiskeyjoesmr #nachos #comingsoon #whiskeyjoesm #whiskeyjoest #whiskeyjoespr A post shared by Whiskey Joe's Manatee River (@whiskeyjoesmr) on Sep 10, 2019 at 11:51am PDT\nThe drink menu features signature tropical cocktails like margs and mojitos as well as offering frozen drinks to beat the Florida heat, wines, brews, and White Claws too.\nAnd that's just a little taste of their massive selection.\nView this post on Instagram Which Whiskey Joe’s location is your favorite?🍹Miami @whiskeyjoesmia 🐊Tampa @whiskeyjoest 🏖Port Richey @whiskeyjoespr 🌴 #whiskeyjoes #whiskeyjoesmr #manateeriver #portrichey #tampa #miami #comingsoon #ellenton A post shared by Whiskey Joe's Manatee River (@whiskeyjoesmr) on Sep 18, 2019 at 11:34am PDT\nTheir laid-back atmosphere enables guests to kick off their flops, sink their toes into the sand to enjoy live entertainment and fire pits while you drink in the views — like one giant beach party.\nView this post on Instagram Holiday parties in full swing!!
