The Nuthouse

Weekdays 3PM - 7PM

Water Street is really taking off to be Tampa’s best dining and business district. Being across from Sparkman Wharf and walking distance to Amalie Arena, it’s the perfect location for booming businesses. Just in the past couple of months they’ve added new dining hotspots like French eatery Boulon Brasserie. This is becoming the spot in Tampa for any special occasion. Don’t be surprised with how elevated and delicious the food is. Their head chef, Hab Hamde comes from a long tenure at Bern’s Steak House.

On top of new foodie spots, Water Street is going to be a popular spot for something else. We think this is going to be a new spot for locals and tourists to get some photo ops. One of the coolest things about the new Tampa district is the public art installations that you can wander around. From murals to lighted arches, there is some super unique artwork to check out. We love the “neon” peace and love and the whale and parrot mural! Click here for the full guide of the public art.

In addition to shopping and eating, Water Street also hosts multiple events throughout the year. Each month they have a market that features local food and wellness-focused vendors. You can also catch some live entertainment and check out public art. Over the holidays they host a holiday market, which is a perfect spot to buy gifts for your family from local businesses!

Whether you’re looking for a new restaurant to try, need some pampering, or want to start a fitness journey, there’s lots to see on Water Street.
