Cigar Rolling Experience | Tampa, Hotel Haya, April 13

Join J.C. Newman and Hotel Haya on Tuesday, April 13, for an exclusive hands-on experience, rolling cigars and sipping cocktails.

On April 13, 1886, the newly opened Sanchez y Haya cigar company on 7th Avenue became the first place in Ybor City to roll a cigar. Soon after, we earned our nickname: Cigar City. We’re proud to pay homage to Ignacio Haya, carrying the spirit of the founding fathers and cigar artisans who came here to establish Ybor City. Join Hotel Haya and Tampa’s last cigar manufacturer, J.C. Newman Cigar Co. as they team up to celebrate 135 years by showcasing the craft.

From 5-7 pm, indulge in a complimentary welcome cocktail, watch a cigar rolling demo in the Flor Fina lounge, and then enjoy a cigar in the pool courtyard. . Your ticket includes five hand-rolled cigars with hands-on instruction, the opportunity to learn more about the history of Tampa’s cigar industry, lite bites, and welcome cocktail. $35/person.

Tickets are $35 but limited to 25 guests, so make your reservation now!
