Our Favorite Spots in Downtown Tampa

By | Articles | No Comments

Fortunate residents of the luxury apartments for rent at Manor Riverwalk will find themselves right by some of Downtown Tampa’s premier culinary and entertainment destinations. Only steps from the resort-like atmosphere at Manor Riverwalk—which features its own beach-entry pool, a sun deck, cabanas, a screening room, and a state-of-the-art fitness center—are high-end eateries, cocktail lounges, performance spaces, and a 600,000-square-foot waterfront convention center. Check out five of our favorite local destinations.


Edison Food + Drink Lab  |  912 West Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, FL

The brainchild of acclaimed chef and four-time James Beard semifinalist Jeannie Pierola, Edison Food + Drink Lab provides a truly unique culinary experience. Pierola’s creations are as quirky as they are inventive—deconstructions, nitrogen-creations, and exquisitely well-prepared seafood and cocktails. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Edison is that the price is kept incredibly reasonable for the food quality. It is one of the best restaurants in the city, and it somehow manages not to break the bank.


Oxford Exchange  |  420 West Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, FL

What is Oxford Exchange? Is it a restaurant? A bookstore? An event space? A workspace? The answer is yes, yes, yes, and yes. Generally, when an establishment has a goal as lofty as—as they themselves put it—creating a place “where community happens,” they tend to fall short here and there. But Oxford is a special place. The restaurant is great; the bookstore is charming; the event space is beautiful; and somehow it all works together cohesively to create this truly communal atmosphere.


Boca Tampa  |  901 West Platt St., Tampa, FL

It seems nearly every restaurant now touts itself as “farm-to-table,” but Boca Tampa is actually, authentically farm-to-table. Their menu is based on the freshest ingredients they can acquire from local farms—and they know how to prepare it. The food is wildly fresh and flavorful, served in a warm, inviting atmosphere—with outdoor seating—and they have one of the best brunches in the city.


David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts  |  1010 North W.C. MacInnes Pl., Tampa, FL

As we shift gears a bit from food to entertainment, we can say that the Straz Center (previously the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center) is one of the largest theaters of its kind in the country—and one of the most highly acclaimed! It hosts theater productions, dance performances, concerts, film screenings, and opera over its five venues, so there’s something for all tastes. Their event calendar is as eclectic as it gets, featuring world-class performers from around the globe.


Tampa Convention Center  |  333 South Franklin St., Tampa, FL

We close out our list with the Tampa Convention Center. When one thinks of convention centers, the first images that come to mind are generally not palm trees and shoreside cabanas. But Tampa’s Center, which is situated right on the coast, has all of that. They hold everything from volleyball tournaments to conferences, consumer showcases, and an array of conventions, including the Tampa Bay Comic Con, and it’s all just a short distance from Manor Riverwalk’s new luxury apartments for rent in Downtown Tampa.

Tampa’s Luxury Rental Apartments

By | Articles | No Comments

For prosperous hipsters and sophisticated snowbirds alike, Tampa is a hot spot for those who want to experience Florida’s year-round sunshine and indulge in the city’s culture and, as the New York Times puts it, “easy charm.” For some, this might just be a weekend vacation. But for those of you who prefer sunnier climes year-round, Manor Riverwalk’s, Tampa’s luxury rentals apartments, are now leasing. Manor Riverwalk will put you right in the heart of this dynamic city, as it elevates apartment living with its signature resort-style vibes. Here, you’ll always feel like you’re on vacation in your own home. Welcome!

The first thing you’ll adore about these luxury rental apartments is their location. Over the past few decades, the Riverwalk District of Tampa has become the must-live Downtown destination, and it’s easy to see why. On any day of the week, you can find yourself strolling along the Hillsborough River and popping in and out of luxe boutiques like Greiner’s Fine Men’s Clothing or grabbing dinner at Maestro’s and seeing a show at the Straz Center. All of Downtown is at your fingertips—or really, your feet, since this neighborhood is infinitely walkable. Don’t forget to try the water taxi, which is a fun way to get around and do a little hometown sightseeing.

After a day out and about, heading home is just as enjoyable as exploring the neighborhood because Manor Riverwalk, Tampa’s luxury rentals apartments, has the style and amenities of some of the world’s most luxurious hotels. Eye-catching from a distance and up close, its modern yet distinctive beach-house-style residences are built around courtyards that allow residents to celebrate the sun and gentle bay breezes on a daily basis.

But that’s not the only place to experience the wonders of the outdoors. Mingle with your neighbors around the waterfall-edged, beach-entry pool or head to the Riverfront Club Terrace and get a private cabana on the sun deck to soak in the sun solo. And if all this relaxing causes any ounce of stress, get your “Om” on in the meditation garden featuring the giant oak tree centerpiece.

Whether you’re in a chic studio or a spacious three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, this amiable and relaxed lifestyle extends to every facet of the elegant apartments at Manor Riverwalk, including the sleek design, state-of-the-art appliances, open-plan living areas, and enviable river views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Imagine sipping a glass of champagne on your private balcony as you take in the vistas surrounding you, and then start making the plans for making it all come true.
