Armature Works on the Hillsborough River
Great location! Great food options! And lots to do at Armature Works!
A once-dilapidated maintenance barn for TECO streetcars and trolleys more than a century ago, Armature Works is a fully restored mixed-use building that breathes new life into Tampa Heights and the Tampa Riverwalk area.
Located north of downtown Tampa on the Hillsborough River, the building has been reinvented as the Heights Public Market, a rooftop lounge, restaurants and public and private event space.
Heights Public Market is a food-lover’s dream. The 22,000 sq-ft industrial market features an open floor plan with communal seating with walk-up restaurants showcasing the top chefs and restaurateurs in the Bay Area. Heights Public Market also includes a “Show + Tell” workshop that hosts an array of events such as cooking classes, wine tastings and pop-up dinners in collaboration with market tenants.
Amature Works includes M.Bird, a rooftop destination overlooking the river, as well as signature restaurants Steelbach and Oak & Ola.
The building’s extensive renovation project focused on keeping the historical feel of the Tampa landmark with exposed brick, skylights, original windows and hard wood floors.
But it’s not just a place to grab a bite to eat and catchup with friends. There are indoor and outdoor activities. They have a running club, yoga, the Heights Night Market (monthly) and special events. Check out the calendar here: https://www.armatureworks.com/calendar/
