Tampa's "other" party district, located about a mile north of downtown. Although not as vast as Ybor, Channelside is cleaner and more upper class. There are nice clubs there (Banana Joe's, Splitsville), the largest Hooters and Bennigan's in the country, and other bars (Velvet Room). Also, the St. Pete Times Forum is there, as is the Florida Aquarium.
I go to Channelside with a date because it is cleaner and more sophisticated than Ybor, if you will.
