Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping, "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon for Datz Tampa. Choose between the following two options:
- For $15, you get a three-pour flight of premium scotch, bourbon, or rum (a $20 value) and an appetizer (up to a $20 value) (up to a $40 total value).
- For a $20 donation, you get one ticket to a fundraiser benefiting The Spring of Tampa Bay on June 12
Folding a fully stocked bar, gastropub, and market into one tasty package, Datz Tampa helps guests sip and nibble their way to epicurean nirvana. Visitors can jet off on a first-class flight, stopping in Kentucky for bourbon, Scotland and Japan for scotch, or Tennessee, Guatemala, and Peru for rum. Bourbonites can backstroke through Prichard's Double Barreled, and rum lovers can imbibe 1-ounce pours of Ron Zacapa XO. The mature Glenrothes Vintage 1985 takes 10-year-old Laphroaig and 12-year-old Yamazaki scotch under its Members-Only-jacket-wearing wing. Rather than lugging a blender to the pub, visitors leave the mixing to the bartenders, who can swirl spirits with complimentary Fentimans, Fever-Tree, or Soleil Water.
Diners discover taste buds they didn't know existed when devouring one of the dinner menu's 16 appetizers. Wrapped in duck-bacon scarves, sliders toboggan toward bellies, and herds of buffalo shrimp lumber into mouths on black-pepper biscuits. One Big Ol' crab cake dressed in Cajun rémoulade helps dads celebrate Father's Day or laundry day in style.
For the philanthropically inclined, Datz is hosting a fundraiser benefiting The Spring of Tampa Bay. The fundraiser is being held in remembrance of Datz waitress Melissa Morrison, who was murdered earlier this year. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to The Spring, a certified domestic violence prevention and emergency shelter agency. The event features craft beer sampling from Sam Adams Brewery and unlimited hors d'ouevres, allowing guests to sip fine ferments and chew on corn dogs, sliders, and red-velvet funnel cakes.
Datz Tampa is closed on most Sunday evenings.
