This past weekend we drove to Tampa, Florida to visit family and had the most memorable time! From enjoying a fun family night full of scrumptious food & fabulous music on the lawn of Sparkman Wharf, and taking the dolphin tour on The Little Toot Dolphin Adventure in Clearwater, Florida, we thought we had experienced it all. Then we heard about the Oxford Exchange in downtown Tampa. Let me just tell you…it is a MUST. The ambiance, the decor, the food and oh my gosh…the DRINKS! Do I have your attention yet?
Que The Champagne Bar. Heaven on Earth… but only right here in Florida! How lucky are we? I am a sucker for a great cocktail, but I really love one when it is created with this amount of beauty & intention. I mean, just look at this stunning setting. (PS. I can’t believe I was this lucky to enjoy the bar in their grand opening week.) If you haven’t gone yet, I PROMISE, it will NOT disappoint! They serve a very well thought out menu comprised of champagne, sparkling wine and rosé. Oh, and, eh hem, might I add the space makes for the most gorgeous Instagram backdrops and blog photos. (PPS. now I need a bar like this in my home.)
Oh, and did I tell you I am slightly obsessed with beautiful stationary too! The Champagne Bar teamed up with the renowned Rifle Paper Co. when creating their menus. Check out the mouthwatering selections below. I enjoy the sweeter side of my pallet so I went with the bartender’s suggestion of the Rifle Paper Co. Punch. How fitting, right?
Remember the stunning photo ops and backdrops…here’s a little taste (see what I did there) of what you can expect.
Did you think I was going to leave out the yummy pictures of the crafted cocktail I got? Savor on these!
And every responsible drinker has a designated driver! That would be why my hubby ordered up a cortado from Buddy Brew Coffee at the Oxford Exchange.
