Ybor City is the historical and cultural heart of old Tampa. Once, a thriving cigar manufacturing center, Ybor City is much better known today as an arts and entertainment district. By day, you can stroll the sidewalks and explore funky, eclectic shops, enjoy a cup of coffee on the terrace at Centro Ybor or take in the beautiful scenery. You can see a true artist hand-roll a cigar in a storefront window. Vintage clothing stores, incredible restaurants and even a few Irish pubs await your visit. Ybor City is a fun place to relax and enjoy the tranquil slow-pace during the day, but by night it transforms into a sizzling mecca of entertainment. Many bars, restaurants and clubs come alive as the sun goes down.
