Party in two bars for the price of one! Peabody's and The Palms can deliver a good time any day of the week. On the bar side of things you'll find several pool tables for the crowd that's looking to chill and take advantage of the fantastic drink specials, while the connecting Palms Lounge houses a dance floor for college students looking to get down. Events include 2-for-1 Tuesdays, with DJs playing 80s classics in the Palms, and Thursday pitcher night, when liquor pitchers go for as low as $6. If you're in the USF area, Peabody's is by far the best place to “Eat, Drink, and Get Racked.”
Like its sister bar, the University Area Hangout, the Lutz Area Hangout features entertainment and events every night of the week. In addition to Karaoke, Trivia Nights and Beer Pong tournaments, the LA Hangout frequently hosts live bands such as local favorite Phoenix, offers Thursday Bike Night specials and features a Friday evening Pig Roast. The Hangout is open all afternoon, so arrive early to grab a bite and a pint, or take advantage of the pool tables, dart boards and video games. Happy Hour is every day until 7 pm and smoking is allowed. For locals who don't care to venture all the way to Ybor, the LA Hangout is a hands-down favorite.

Although if you had a bit too much to drink your best bet would be to catch a cab back home.
