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. Now Ruby's boasts national and touring acts from around the world. The place to see all your favorite local acts as well! Ruby's Elixir is now downtown St. Petersburg's premier live music lounge hosting the Tampa Bay Area's premier music acts seven nights a week. Ruby's offers an extensive collection of premium spirits, beer, and wine.
