About Central Cigars

Central Cigars is St. Petersburg’s premier cigar bar and lounge offering one of the largest cigar selections in the Tampa Bay Area.

What started as Central Cigars in the late 90’s, a cigar store where Central Cigars’ patrons could enjoy cigars from Saint Petersburg’s largest selection of premium cigars… eventually evolved into Central Cigars & “The Havana Room” in the 2000’s and finally… Central Cigars & Ruby’s Elixir in 2011 amidst growing demand for live music in more recent years. Since it’s inception, Central Cigars & Ruby’s Elixir has drawn cigar and music enthusiasts from the Tampa Bay area to see their favorite artists perform in an casual upscale lounge. Central Cigars still boasts one of the largest cigar selection in Florida with over 50 brands!

With a throwback lounge feel, Central Cigars & Ruby’s strives to be the kind cigar retail bar and music lounge you might find in large cities in the 40’s and 50’s. Classic drinks, like the Old Fashioned, served in a casual chic environment allows patrons to sit back relax, enjoy a cigar or a cocktail while watching some of the Bay Area’s best talent.

Central Cigars & Ruby’s Elixir’s success is indicative of a vibrant and growing arts culture in Downtown Saint Petersburg. As the city continues to grow and demand for live music on a nightly basis continues to increase, Central Cigars & Ruby’s will be there leading the Saint Pete music revolution with a diverse showcase of premier talent.
