Ybor City is an area of club and restaurants which was founded in 1886 by Vicente Martinez Ybor, Ybor City became "the cigar capital of the world" by 1900.
One of our favorite clubs is the Blues Ship Cafe. A great blues club. We saw Percy Strother in July of 1997. He put on a good show and the entire band signed a CD for us. We had a great time. Here are the particulars:
