SoHo Tampa, short for "South Howard Avenue (Tampa)" is an entertainment district within the Hyde Park neighborhood of Tampa. Some of the main cross streets are Kennedy Boulevard (SoHo's starting point), Cleveland Street, Platt Street and Swann Avenue. The area has historic architecture and is within walking distance of Bayshore Boulevard where it terminates (two miles away from the entertainment district). The much praised[1][2][3] Bern's Steak House is located in the district. Other high-end restaurants and nightlife venues are located here as well including The Lodge and MacDintons. Other offerings are high-end locally-owned clothing boutiques, art galleries, dessert cafes, and a Starbucks.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20] One of only three Publix GreenWise Markets is also located in the district.[21] As of 2009, small companies have sprung up utilizing NEVs to shuttle clubgoers between core neighborhoods including SoHo and Channelside.[22][23]

In 2009 a small park dedicated to Bern Laxer, late founder of Bern's Steakhouse, opened at the southern part of the district. At the center of the park is the "Three Graces" sculpture and a lighted fountain that is the first in Tampa to use reclaimed water.[24]
