Armature Works 

Armature Works was considered by most to be the most-anticipated restaurant opening in Tampa. Or I should say, restaurants. Armature Works is a mixed used space housed in the gorgeous brick building that was the storage and maintenance facility for the TECO streetcars back in 1910. Today, it hosts some of the best food in all of Tampa, including Ava, Inside the Box, and Ichicoro, just to name a few (of my favorites!), along with great wine and cocktail choices. They also have a rotating stand, which currently houses Chismis & Co, a Filipino restaurant.

Isn’t she beautiful?

The outside area is really nice, and will get nicer as the weather cools down a bit.

The inside also has an event space that looks amazing during weddings, and they host all sorts of activities, including the Indie Flea market, yoga on the lawn, and live music. Armature also just debuted Bay 3, a coworking area with lots of different work options and a communal space.
