Love this place! Barstaff and management do all they can to make your time there fun and friendly. I like the different floors because they are all different decors and genres of music. If you don't like spanish music, go up to the roof for reggae, or down to the balcony for top40/hiphop.
We had a bottle party and the waitress was super cute and friendly.. we always had what we needed. Also if you buy a bottle you aren't glued to the floor you bought it on, they will move you if you'd like.
VIP is definitely worth it, they have foot stools to kick your feet up (ladies, you know you want to!) and plushy couches and wraparound seating.
Not to sound cliche or like I work at this place, but after going to other clubs and being stuck with one kind of music/dj/crowd it sucks knowing you can't just find the stairs to go to something different.
Highly recommended by a USF student =)
HORRIBLE! DONT GO IF YOUR A GOOD GUY. Prana is a group of womanizing baffoons. They will seperate you from your girl and then try to manipulate situations. Jeff lue is the worst. I had signed the guestlist prior to going in. No list when i get there jeff lue comes out and asks my name and such and my girl's. Leads my girl to another line. As I have to sit outside, my girl waits along with me until Jeff lue tries to work her inside and seperate her from me. I have gotten free in this club everytime , I was free at czar this night as well. He then says that i have to be charged 15$, i said let me get my girl or tell her to come out so we can go back to czar, and then he manipulates her and tells her that hes gonna buy me drinks and cut me a deal and blah blah blah after he makes me stand outside by a random cop that pulls up talking to a bouncer, making me look like a fool for 15 minutes , like a creeper. I am a man of high moral values , and soon a military officer. This is very inappropriate and i felt very degraded. If you are a good man, do not go to this place.
If you're a creeper.... you'll love prana. Everything from guidos to "gangsters" with a dash of LGBT and old guys trying to pick up drunk college girls. But dont worry, after 1:00 they just start letting any old riff raff come in turning it into a drunk moshpit orgy with over priced drinks and too much synthetic fog.
Huge illegal substance hangout crowd. I guess Smitty has put alot of money into trying to keep this place open. Rent on it must be cheap becasue everytime Ive been its dead or everyones in th parking lot doing something illegal. Good music, its ok inside but the crowd is older guys trying to get the bearly 18 yr olds drunk. Not my thing
Loved It! Loved It! Loved It!. My experience at Prana will be one of my most fondest memories!! The atmosphere was great - the club jumped off around midnight! Even with 5 floors it was a bit crowded, but it was worth it. For my first time in Tampa, it made for a memorable trip. I would recommend Prana to anyone that likes to dance, drink, and have tons of fun!!
what a night. the night was a blast. the dj's were awesome. i say that with an "s" because they have 5 levels with all different music. the staff was the best looking i have ever seen. the owner actually came out an introduced himself to me and thanked me for coming out. the singles scene was great and i met the girl i have been dating on the vip floor. best place in tampa hands down!
The place where Tampa's in-crowd goes to dance, drink and mingle..
A Genuine Doorman
Prana is one of the few places in town with a real-deal doorman manning the velvet rope. We're not talking about some schmuck in a "security" t-shirt. He's as well-dressed as anyone inside. Be polite, because he also decides who gets in. Remember, lines in "hot clubs" are always long and never fair. If you really want in, look great and come early.
Places like this are all about seeing (and meeting) the right people. Don't stress over drink prices or cover, they're all expensive. My bartender didn't once bring me change, either. She obviously assumed I was a big tipper. The service is slow and pompous, unless you're waving $100 bills.
From the cushy couches and cozy tables to the tall barstools and clean lighting, the people who designed the restaurant (RIP--La Mezzanine) that morphed into Prana knew what they were doing. It's now the nightclub everyone's talking about, and the beautiful people are all here.
Fun, Fun, Fun. I just want to say that for my first night there I enjoyed myself very much. You have chosen the best looking guys to be bouncers. WOW!
Nice decor. Music wasn't anything special; the regular tampa radio breaks and they always play the same records. Kind of meat marketish, lots of meatheads and cylicone. Overpriced drinks but OK cover charge. Bartenders are nice and always smiling. Dancefloor is always really crowded but you can manage. There must be something to it though because we always seem to make our way in there when in Ybor. Love the decor and Ive met several nice people.
