Liquid Lounge is moving at least 12′ but 1 huge difference, their address is now on 7th Ave. The old Blue Shark has totally been redone. The new openness and light through the front windows allow you to see downtown Tampa’s tallest buildings and skyscape. What a great transformation. Glass tiles, zebra wood and metal walls make the new Liquid…liquid! Owners, Manny Alvarez and Mike M. have moved their small 15th Street bar to a 2 story dance club. New added shot bars are on the 2nd floor and an added bar in the front bar area with a wrap around bar rail. A soft opening was held during the Sant Yago Knight Parade. It was packed!
