The Grand Cathedral | Cigar Friendly, Tampa (FL)

Unless you have been under a rock in the cigar business, you will have heard about the abandoned church in Tampa that has been converted into a cigar paradise. Proprietor Angela Yue and her business partner Nathan have done an amazing job with the décor, both inside and out of what is now known as The Grand Cathedral.

The two levels above the main level are for VIPs. For those who are not VIP, the main level still delivers an amazing cigar smoking experience. There is a spacious humidor with a large presence of cigars from Arturo Fuente, J.C. Neumann, LFD. and many others. There are also many different four- and five-pack humibags available by the front counter for your purchasing pleasure.

Pay attention to the great decor when you visit. The table at which you may be sitting might have been a warehouse fan in its prior life, or the rudder of a boat. Angela really mixed the recycled look with sheer elegance. Add a tasty cocktail to your cigar from the full liquor bar and enjoy the scenery of the new Tampa tourist site.
