• About
    A truly elevated experience, Beacon is a five-star rooftop cocktail and dining destination splendidly positioned on the 27th floor of the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street. Upon opening, Beacon made its mark, becoming the highest public rooftop cocktail & dining space in Tampa (and second highest in Florida). The space immediately captures the eye, with its sleek and vibrant design showcased in several lounge areas, including an outdoor terrace, a signature bar and a variety of intimate seating spaces. Guests will enjoy delectable cocktails curated by their team of award-winning mixologists, which blend classic techniques and innovation in each creation. Beacon’s aesthetic was inspired by both Florida’s spectacular natural beauty and its tradition of providing the idyllic location for a luxurious escape. Subtly drawing from local flora and fauna, the space’s colors capture the quintessential character of Tampa and the state’s sun-drenched beaches, dazzling coral reefs and epic sunsets. Nestled within Beacon is The Sidecar, a separate but unique bar reminiscent of Florida’s bygone era of opulent train travel. Outdoors on the terrace, lush plantings blur the boundaries between interior and exterior, providing the perfect setting to take full advantage of Beacon’s 27th floor location and its dazzling 270-degree views of Water Street Tampa and the Gulf Coast waters.
