Cigars and Tampa history at King Corona in Ybor City

Thanks in large part to its location and cigar selection, King Corona has become a destination for locals and tourists alike. Unlike so many other cigar spots on Ybor City's famous 7th Avenue strip, King Corona doesn't have in-store rollers and stocks lots of the brands you're familiar with (along with its own smokes). Plus, their coffee, beer, breakfast and tapas offerings give people a reason to stop by around the clock.

Don Barco offered us a primer on the neighborhood's tobacco history and how his Tampa shop fits into that picture.
