So, why is it so expensive to go out in Tampa? According to a new study Tampa is the 12th most expensive city in the nation for a night out. For a night out in Tampa the average person spends $82 “for a typical night out of drinking.” A night out is an evening with an Uber ride to and from the bar and two drinks at dinner. It also includes two cocktails at a club afterwards.

The study says that the average one-way Uber ride costs about $19, the cost of a cocktail is usually around $14. $15 for a bottle of wine, and between $6 and $7 for a beer at a restaurant or bar. We’d love to know what restaurants in Tampa are selling bottles of wine for $15, cause we usually see double that price! It’s expensive to go out in Tampa, but it’s not the #1 city in Florida.
