Iconic Social Roost Inn: Historic Ybor City Tampa

Located in: Tampa
Property History:

The Inn property has been home to a local legend for 30 years. The founder of the once legendary annual Ybor Chicken Funeral Parade. A vastly popular New Orleans style funeral paying tribute to the lost chickens of Ybor each year. Chickens are a Ybor staple and have been part of the scenery that have made the city so unique for generations. He is one of the founders of Guavaween, and endless Ybor traditions. The social events creator brought life back to the city decades ago after the cigar industry recessed and urban renewal began to wipe away the city's rich architecture and culture.

About the Inn:

The Inn is a 1910 fully restored bungalow with all the comforts of home. Enjoy historical touches and the entire home with 1 king bedroom, 1 queen bedroom, 1 full bath, full kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 complimentary parking spots (rare for this area), and all the bells and whistles to make your stay comfortable. If additional parking is needed please let us know prior to check in

Enjoy the beautiful front porch with rocking chairs and a side view of 7th Avenue (Our version of New Orleans, Bourbon Street). Walk just 350 steps to historic 7th Avenue to enjoy dining, nightlife, museums, cigar rollers, and much more. Please know that Historic Ybor is an Urban district. This means you may be privy to sounds of chickens, cars, nightlife, and trains. It's all part of the experience!
