The Oxford Exchange

Last weekend while in Tampa, I discovered a historical and unique spot right outside of downtown.

What they offer: 
Bookstore - Buddy Brew Coffee -  Shopping - Commerce Club - Tebella Tea - Restaurant

A 1920s throwback - Anthropology mixed with Books & Books - serving the best roasted coffee in town - tons of conference rooms and vintage inspired study areas. Wow!

The Oxford Exachge is a true gem.

A typical day could look like this:
8am latte from Buddy Brew while reading the New York Times.
9am client meeting in a conference room.
11am phone call in a padded leather room.
12pm chicken salad sandwich & sweet potato fries in the sun room.
2pm pit stop to pick up the next best seller on your list.
3pm pick up a scarf for your sister's birthday.
4pm tea in the common area while reading your new best seller.
5pm post meeting via skype in the study lounge upstairs.

The OE is a free place to work, play, eat and shop.  If you want to use the commerce area on a regular basis, a membership must be purchased though. The going rate is $100 per month. Not bad once you see the environment. Do not let the fee steer you away, everything else is free to enjoy so feel free to browse around!
