Congratulations to the Barrymore Hotel Tampa Riverwalk for becoming a finalist in the Downtown Tampa Partnership’s Urban Excellence Awards for 2019. The Barrymore is in the running for the People’s Choice Award for Best Collaboration in light of their partnership with Wiesn in a Box‘s pop-up traveling biergarten. The pretzel-serving, German beer-pouring, mobile “bar” was parked in the back of the Barrymore’s lot for two weekends, complete with giant Jenga and cornhole.
The Urban Excellence Awards celebrates businesses, organizations, individuals, events and projects that have made significant contributions toward creating a unique, vibrant and diverse downtown environment – and have made a lasting, positive impact on Downtown Tampa. Each year an awards jury representing a cross-section of Downtown constituencies selects award winners honoring the leadership, innovation, hard work, talent and community spirit.
