The Karol Hotel
The Karol Hotel Welcomes Back Guests Nov. 11
Vantage Rooftop Bar is a rooftop retreat unlike any other in the area, with a climate-controlled environment that allows year-round enjoyment. Guests and local residents will be able to enjoy featured menu items including a selection of grazing boards, pimento cheese & pork rinds, fresh shucked oysters, burgers, chef-inspired entrees and more, while taking in stunning views of downtown Tampa's skyline. The rooftop bar is also available for small private social or business gatherings, with ample room to maintain appropriate social distancing. No visit to Vantage Rooftop Bar will be complete without a photo under the custom neon lights that read, "Don't I know you from somewhere?" - the famous pick-up line Fred used to grab Karol's attention. As of Nov. 11, hours of operation will be Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., Friday from 4 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Karol Hotel is named for and inspired by Karol Kelly Bullard, "Miss Karol K," wife of Fred Bullard, CEO of The Bullard Group, developer and owner of the property. The boutique hotel features 123 guest rooms and suites; the Vantage Rooftop Bar overlooking Tampa Bay; the signature K Club Bar & Bistro (temporarily closed); a combined 7,340 square feet of event space, including a ballroom and executive conference rooms; and an outside pool and fitness center. A towering tribute to Miss Karol K, the hotel's design and décor are a stylish reflection of her remarkable life - from her early days as Miss Florida and Florida's first "weather woman" to her current role as community activist and philanthropist.
