Owner description: Once the cigar capital of the world, Ybor City is now a thriving community.
Reviewed 30 March 2018

I have watched the gentrification of Ybor City since 2003. All of this area was blighted and Tampa decided to re-develop this part of town. Good walking part of town. BUT, the constant requests for money from the homeless and others is a bit much during the course of an evening. That alone is a deterrent to staying in this area too long.

This old Cuban part of Tampa still has a Latin flavor with good restaurants and clubs that get started and run late.

I was there during the day, cute little town. Would love to go back for the night life, I heard it’s a lot more fun at night. We took the trolly from Tampa after strolling there

It is as essential to see this part of Tampa as it is to see the Bay. Ybor is truly a part of the heritage of the Tampa Bay area. We love to see the Ybor City feathered friends along the railroad track, yes they are chicken. Maybe left over from the cock fighting days. Some great restaurants are to be found here, along with a few very good craft beers. Some great venues to people watch. Stop here before you go home, its well worth it.
