A new generation finds a city in renaissance, and we are proud to be a part of that renewal. Taking cues from Tampa’s history of 17th century pirates, traders, and privateers, Punch Room at The Tampa EDITION, the first in North America, brings forth a menu dedicated to flavors and spirits of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, the cradle to so many contributions in the evolution of punch.

Join us for this mixology-guided tour of the islands, as we dive deep into the regional history of punches, exploring the terroir of cane spirits and a rich variety of tropical fruits and spices. Drop anchor, raise a glass, and settle in.

    I was really excited to take my husband to Punch Room but left highly disappointed. While the atmosphere is top notch and a place I'd consider a hidden gem off just the decor alone, the service was absolutely horrendous. The hostess was very nice and allowed us to choose our seat since it wasn't crowded (our reservation was at 7pm which is early for them and considered "breakfast" - apparently they start getting busy with lines out the door around 11pm according to a server we overheard telling the table next to us). There were probably about three or four other groups/couples there and after we sat, it took about 20 mins or so to even be acknowledged - to the point that my husband asked me if we had to go up to the bar to order. Our server, whose name we never learned (tall, thin, with dark short hair) asked what type of water we wanted and then brought us two small cups of a welcome drink from a punch bowl (no idea what it was because she gave zero info). We ordered our drinks (the same drink because we assumed it would come together in a bowl because it was from pages I later learned were the "bowl menu"). The bartender brought over our drink in two separate glasses and we were a bit confused since we thought it would come in a bowl to share. When we were finally able to flag down our server, my husband said he thought we would have gotten our punch in a bowl and she apologized and said "do you want me to pour them into a two-person punch bowl so you can have that experience?" (meanwhile, our drinks were like half drank at this point.) It was extremely awkward and then she offered to bring us a bar snack which was a bowl of wasabi cashews. We finished our drinks and nobody came to our table for about 40 mins or so. We heard the server explain to the table next to us that the first few pages of the menu (where we ordered our drinks from) came in punch bowls, and offered some info on the punch they ordered. Spent $75 on two drinks in cocktail glasses and water.

    I came here with my husband for my birthday and it was such a nice experience. If you’re looking for an upscale establishment with a speakeasy vibe, this is your spot. The mixologist was on point so the drinks did not disappoint. I will definitely be back soon.

    Great place. Great vibe. Low level music allows for easy conversations. Great drinks. Be prepared to drop a dime though. Having said that, you have to do the punch bowl experience. Why bother going otherwise. Waitstaff was fantastic!

    Ambience and the experience of “Punch Room” is great, especially as this is the first in North America and the concept is unique. Nevertheless , I did not feel it was appropriate to charge $25 for a mocktail, the same as what I feel is the price of an over-priced cocktail. I suppose you’re paying for the ambience, service, and the experience in addition to the drinks for that price, but there are other lounges that offer the same without excessive overpricing.

    The bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly, I wish we saw her more often. She came by several times prior to my group ordering, after the order was place we only saw her once more. The room is beautiful, the drinks are stunning, the location and ambience is perfect. Love the creativity.

    Really cool place. The service was top notch and drinks delicious. You’re paying extra for the ambiance and work that goes into the punch but I felt it was worth it. Sailor’s Cup was one of the best cocktails I can recall.

    I enjoyed the punch room. I did not eat there but was pleasantly surprised by the punch drinks. I am a whiskey or vodka drinker and not keep on sweet drinks. The service was great. Great chill vibe. Amber is a sweetheart and Carlos can mix. Met Renee last night and she’s great

    Nice ambiance. It got a little loud after larger groups arrived. No food menu , but tasty nuts are available. The punches were delicious and I feel I got my money worth. $25 for each cocktail. Wait staff were great and served everyone the same.

    The Edition Hotel and Punch Room were undoubtedly gorgeous. The table we sat at was a bit oddly placed but not something I would say was a detractor from the experience. Amber (our server) was incredible and went out of her way to make our time at the Punch Room excellent (she even offered to make the off-menu drink made by Rene Fitzgerald I came in for.) The first drink we ordered was in a punch bowl, which gets you about 3.5 drinks, and the value shines there. The glass itself was excellent; I loved the coffee and lime combo. Then we moved on to individual drinks, and things started falling short for me. My next order was cohesive but, as a result, didn't let each of its unique ingredients shine... the order after that was definitely more interesting although the way it was served was kind of odd, haven't seen a large rock in a Fizzio glass before, would probably get rid of the rock and just chill it the glass. 6/10 for me, not sure this format and price point fits Tampa. Would love to see this concept pressure-tested against NYC!

    A visit to the Punch Room is more than stopping in for a pre dinner cocktail. It's an experience! From the one by one escorted entry into an intimate, elegant drawing room ambience complete with fireplace to an exquisitely prepared craft cocktail, it's all wonderful The service by bartender,server who gives a detail explanation of the drink menu was perfect. We were there for a 5p reservation which might have been the reason for personalized service. I've heard it gets really busy later in the day. For me, it was a delightful experience!

    We had reserved a table at the Arts Club through Kayla Antonio. When we checked in with the hostess (also named Kayla) she refused to seat us although we arrived at the scheduled time (9 pm) and had written confirmation of our reservation. She stated there was no reservation under our name. I even showed her the messages from Kayla Antonio and she was just arrogant. Not a great impression for a high end establishment.

    Excellent experience and service. Loved the Madame Francis Punch my friends and I ordered. But order the tap water if you're looking to stay hydrated. I don't think I have ever had to pay for sparkling nor bottled water at an upscale establishment, so this was a first at the Punch Room. In my experience, spots I've been to in The Ritz, Mandarin Oriental and Four Seasons haven't charged for water, speaking to the prioritization of hospitality and experience; perhaps the Edition could follow suit.

    We really enjoyed this unique experience. The drinks we had were delicious, the vibe inside was unique, it was quiet and intimate, and the service was fantastic. We also loved that afterward, we could just slip over to Arts Club, which has a long wait line. We loved our time at Punch Room.
