El Circulo Cubano de Tampa and The Krewe of Mambi

El Club Nacional Cubano. Three years later, the society of three hundred
members changed its name to El Circulo Cubano. According to the 1902 charter,
the club was formed "for the mutual benefit and enjoyment of its members and
for the charitable purposes and instructions of its members and the dissemination
of knowledge among all classes of people." In order to preserve harmony among it's
diverse membership, the statuets of the club expressly prohibited any discussion
within the society of labor, politics or religion.

In 1917, the Circulo Cubano opened its neo-classic clubhouse in Ybor City
at 2010 Avenida Republica de Cuba. Since then, the Circulo Cubano has provided
a theater, grand ballroom, medical clinic, cantina, gym and library to its members.
The activities of the Circulo Cubano have changed over time, but it remains open to
all men and women who are dedicated to the preservation of the Cuban heritage
and culture of Florida. Members do not have to be Cuban or of Cuban decent, but
they must be committed to the original purpose for which the club was founded.

The building is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and it is
administraded by the Cuban Club Foundation Board.

The Krewe of Mambi was formed in 1998 as the Gasparilla Krewe for
the Tampa Cuban Club, and we are seeking new membership and support to help
us protect the future of our treasured building and the heritage of Ybor City.

The activities of the members have changed over time, but the Circulo Cubano
remains open to all men and women who are dedicated to the preservation of the
history, heritage and culture of this historic Ybor City landmark.
