Once upon a time the area of Ybor City was the cigar factory for all America. Immigrants flooded here in the late 19th century to roll cheroots and smokes in the famous red-brick factories, all until the Great Depression slowed manufacturing and the area eventually shut down. Cue the renaissance of recent decades, when Ybor City has emerged to become one of Tampa’s most happening and fascinating districts. The shells of the old cigar mills have been transformed into nightclubs, independent bars, cocktail joints, microbreweries and bespoke restaurants; art galleries have sprung up in abandoned depots, and the industrial-chic builds on 7th Avenue now tout a coveted place on America’s National Register of Historic Places.
