Set along North Nebraska Avenue in downtown Tampa, Blue Note is probably the city's most highly-rated live music bar that plays host to some of the most upcoming acts in the country. Whether you're a fan of classic rock, country or jazz, this could very well turn out to be one of your favorite hangout spots. The place has a smooth divey feel to it, thanks to its dim lights, casual ambiance and sleek decor. The performance space is placed at a decent elevation and offers great visibility for the audience in attendance. A diverse selection of local spirits and brews are available at the bar.
