Florida bevvies and bites drive Ybor Beverage Co., owned by Lauren and Michael Mincberg. Occupying a snazzy 2,000-square-foot space in the historic Tampa district, their 80-seat drinking den — part coffee shop, part wine bar — has quietly launched at 1925 E Sixth Ave. with all kinds of homegrown goodness.
The Mincbergs sling coffee drinks, breakfast toast, Coppertail Brewing Co. on tap and draft wines, alongside charcuterie boards in the evening. According to a news release, they’ve joined forces with the likes of Tampa’s Zeal Coffee Roasters and La Segunda Bakery to serve their products. Those brands mingle with other Tampa Bay favorites such as Gulf Coast Sourdough breads, Made Coffee and Alessi Bakery pastries.
“Ybor City is a really special place, and we saw Ybor Beverage Co. as an opportunity to introduce something new to the area with a focus on bringing the community together,” Lauren Mincberg said in a statement.
On top of the snacks and sips, Ybor Beverage Co. aims to hold events on a monthly basis — think yoga and wine tastings.
The hangout appeals to early birds as much as the after-work crowd, operating 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
