The Cuban Club – Tampa | Listed among the Travel Channel’s “Top 10 Most Haunted Places,” the Cuban Club (AKA Circulo Cubano de Tampa) lies within Tampa’s bustling Ybor City neighborhood. Built in 1917, the Cuban Club evolved into an immensely popular hangout for Cuban immigrants. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Cuban Club is allegedly haunted by several ghostly spirits, including an actor who reportedly committed suicide on stage, a theater board member murdered during an argument, an elegant lady in a “misty dress” and a young boy playing ball on the theater steps. The Cuban Club is one of several stops on the Ybor City Ghost Tour. Other alleged haunted sites in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area include Florida Brewery Company, Tampa Theatre (home of the ghost of former projectionist Foster “Fink” Finley), Don CeSar Hotel (aka “The Pink Palace”), University of South Florida Library, Fort De Soto Campground and Plant Hall at the University of Tampa (formerly the Tampa Bay Hotel). And while some of these might not hold a candle to Orlando’s haunted hay rides, they’re still filled with spooks a’plenty!
