Club Skye sits at 1509 E. 8th Avenue, located in the heart of Historical Ybor City’s entertainment district. Skye is next to Centro Ybor which runs an authentic Trolley transporting visitors to and from Channelside. Four Star Hotels, upscale restaurants, and shopping are all within close walking distance. Two parking garages and valet services are also available.
The walls of the legendary 1509 building have been host to some of the most talked about artists of the last few decades. When Club 1509 first opened it’s doors in 1996, the sounds of shredding rock music screamed out of the premium sound system. As the 90’s continued to give way to the rise of the Electronic Dance scene, 1509 stepped up and became Tampa’s dance music epicenter. Not ready to rest on it’s laurels and past success, in August of 2003, 1509 was reborn as Club Skye. Consistently chosen as Ybor’s Best Hip Hop venue by discriminating clubgoers and journalists, alike, Club Skye continues to command attention by bringing the biggest names in the industry and hosting the most popular weekly and special events. Presently, in conjuction with major media partners like WILD 94.1, Club Skye’s weekly Friday and Saturday nights are the only destination for serious hip hop fans. Special engagements are not to be missed with past performances by artists including Lil Jon, Pitbull, Ludacris, Bow Wow, Rick Ross, Ace Hood, Famous Kid Brick, DJ Khaled, Plies, and Big Sean.
