Oh so Tampa, this picturesque and spacious Mediterranean-style facility dates way back to the turn of the century as a social club for immigrant cigar workers. Now it's a multilevel space with outdoor and indoor accommodations, featuring an aged but elegant ballroom and theater, scenic balconies, a basement cantina and huge outdoor patio, replete with an adorable band shell. or a quarter century, the landmark has been headquarters to the WMNF Tropical Heatwave concert festival in late May and other large-scale music and art events throughout the year. Bands tend to be on the counter-culture side, but a wide range of acts young and not-so-young have performed at El Circulo Cubano.
