Osceola Cafe & Tavern: Dade City's Cleanest Bar
The Osceola is located inside a big, old house that has been converted. It's got a touch of the haunted vibe to it, but it feels a lot safer than other bars I've been to in Dade City.
It's an okay place to hang out, and if you are in Dade City, you'll be looking for something - sweet Jesus, ANYTHING - to do. The drinks are fairly cheap, and there's a pool table. The rougher Dade City crowd hangs out at other bars.
One super weird thing about this bar, though, is that they won't - or don't - serve women. I've been at the bar for a long time waiting and they'll call the man behind me everytime. My ex-boyfriend used to always have to get my drinks for me. Maybe I was a special case, though.
Dress Code: There is no dress code, but I wouldn't wear anything too far to the left. . . unless you like confrontations with strangers who've been drinking all night long.

Ralph's (San Antonio Liquor Store)
The official name is the San Antonio Liquor Store but it is actually a bar that all the locals call Ralph's. It was sold a few years back. The new owners changed nothing except the name, and the town didn't even like that changed- so everyone still calls it Ralph's. Ralph's is the kind of red neck bar you picture in a movie, however it is really quite popular as a place to visit when all the kids who have grown up and left town 'come home.' It has two pool tables, a juke box, an old Lay's vending machine and a dance floor. Sometimes there is a band or karaoke
Dress Code: Come as you are! Peole are mostly in tight jeans and cowboy hats but wear what you're comfortable in. It is a friendly sort of place.
