Ybor is interesting. Some places is just down right scary, others you won't know what you will find inside. Feel free to check it out, however it is not the place where i would take my friends from out of town for a night out.

Int Plaza, by airport, has few places too, however they are quite expensive and geared more towards business crowd that stays in hotels around the airport
I heard some things about Ybor, how its a bad area and to avoid, Ill look at all of the places are Soho. Hows the are at night? Looks cleaner and nicer from the pictures.

It's def safe it that's your concern, as i said in terms of college kids, Kennedy's (especially Thu) or weekends, but it's always mixed with young professionals

College scene, Peabody's definitely. Entire neighborhoods are better of course, in which case I recommend Ybor and SoHo with Channelside for hon. mention, but beware if under 21. Don't listen to people slamming Ybor. Dowotown St. Pete and Grand Central for the Burg side. Clearwater Beach for north Pinellas. There's lots of places.

Well Ybor you can meet characters with wife beater tshirt, pants around the knees and other "gangsta" looking people, also it has fair share of homeless people begging for change. Side streets look old, with dark corners (probably because tons of lighting in center streets, the contrast of side streets are much more noticeable) and old buildings, especially in the outskirts of Ybor. Soho on the other hand has more uniform lightning, the area is settled by people with good jobs in their late 20s early 30s, so wandering to the side street is not that big of a deal. Also i have not really noticed bums in SoHo at night so that one element of danger removed.

Go to both places, make up your own mind, this is just my experience, and while i'm not a fan of Ybor, i will go down there form time to time

SoHo can be a bit pretentious. There's a lot of wanna-be yuppies and people pretending that it's Miami. I'm not saying there aren't also good people having fun, too. It's definitely not where you go to be around college students, though. It's more of the "young professional" crowd. (Is anyone else getting sick of that term?)

I can't stand these 'young professionals' myself, even though I aspire to be one. Maybe I'm just jealous. I'm sorry but in your mid twenties you don't know squat as far as people skills go. I love to call them on their BS too, and watch them stumble for words in their nasally little emasculated voices. You know the ones I'm talking about right? Like those skinny pseudo professionals who work desk jobs at your local bank. Glorified retail clerks that is, who try to pass themselves off financial professionals.Probably haven't even taken a basic accounting course.
