This place just plain sucks. Poor personal service and high prices over shadow anything else remotely attractive about this box.

Be warned about the lot they own across the street- shady tow truck men watching the lot- heard many horror

HPC brings it every time we go. The cutting edge dj music and tropical atmosphere make this place a go-to place for locals and out-of-towners.

This club continues to amaze me and my friends with their music and atmosphere. One of my girlfriends had her birthday party here and it was a blast.

wow this is by far the worst place i have been to,
the DJs cant DJ. there was 8 people in the entire place.
all one dj does is whistle . ive been there several times hoping it would get better, but with the type of horrible mixing and music the djs play, they just arent drawing the crowd!

never again!

I dress well, I tip well, and I bring friends. You would think I would get treated with a little respect. I couldn't even figure out which door to go in, and the doormen and women were too concerned about the ladies trying to get in the VIP to give me the time of day. Way too much attitude for me. I would never recommend to a friend!!! Although once I was inside, the bartenders knew who was paying the tab and treated me very well... My female friends weren't happy that I was getting served before them!!! That's a first!

Pros: Bartenders

Cons: The scene, the doormen

This club is a default dance spot if you can get access (which by the way, is much better scene on the VIP side) and if Ybor is all played out. It's mostly buxom Tampa girls and guys in striped shirts and distressed jeans posing as players, which some folks find an obnoxious scene. But I go because I love the music (hip hop, other mashups), and one of the bartenders is a friend. The right hand side has a larger dance floor, but I like the intimacy of the VIP lounge.

A red velvet rope, people deciding if you can come in or not by the way you lok and of you are a female or not, where do they think we are???? Ive been going to HPC for years, but will no longer, it is just rediculous for a bar in tampa to have this attitude, too bad cause its a pretty club and sometimes plays good music, but the silliness to have so many rules in Tampa is well, just SILLY!

The snobby attitudes in this place are horrible and way too many pretty boys/ guys, feels like a gay bar. Wait,... maybe I missed that part somewhere! VIP area is way too dark and way too open, so your paying to not be seen as its too dark but everyone is walking right by you. So if you were paying in the VIP area to be seen, not the place for it! Its a nice place building wise but the crowd wants everyone to think they are loaded, which is NOT the case. This place has gone down quite a bit. Unless your latino, dont bother with latino night, you are made to feel like your not welcome for not being latino.

Pros: Good music, place itself is attractive

Cons: snobby attitudes and way too many guys ruin it for any not desperate single girl!

If you love to dance then hyde park is the place to be on Tuesday night. Jask is spinning house in the smaller room. If you have never heard him it is worth the trip. By far the best DJ in Tampa.

I've been the the Hyde Park Cafe a couple of times once as a large group for a birthday party on Satuday and then just a few of us to hang out on a Friday night. Comparatively, I enjoyed the music and atmosphere on Friday night the best. The people are fun to watch, a good mix of all types. The general age seems to be between 23 and 30. It is nice to go to a club that has an outside bar (relaxed) and two inside "clubs" for when you get into the mood to dance. It is a lot cleaner and more classy then Ybor City clubs.

i've been to hyde park cafe a couple of times, all on Tuesdays for Jask. the crowd is... pretentious. a bunch of NYC/SouthBeach wanna-be's trying to act and look cool. the music is *great*, jask knows how to work a crowd. nice deep house. the space itself is very nice.
