The Brass Mug live music venue/full liquor smoking allowed bar located on Skipper Rd. in Tampa, Florida. Its original location was on Fletcher Ave.; it moved to Florida Ave. in 2012 and to 1450 Skipper Road in 2013. It is known for being a gritty, smokey bar where live music is hosted every weekend, as well as select weekday evenings, and has been called "the CBGB of Tampa. The venue has been in continuous operation since 1974 and has become a haven for live rock music, black metal, thrash metal, speed metal, death metal and occasionally alternative groups. It is currently owned by Heather Mullis, a former booking agent and bartender for the club who purchased it from its previous owner in 1996. Heather was able to get her full liquor license and turned The Brass Mug from a beer and wine establishment to a full liquor establishment.
