Hispanic Retreat 

Centro Asturiano Club

The 20th century Hispanic embassy in #Ybor’s heyday. They not only catered to Spanish immigrants but those coming and returning from Cuba as well. Wikipedia has the details. This building had it’s own bar, bowling lanes, ballroom and other fancy venues for libation and social gatherings sans social media. These steps have witnessed how time has changed. I’d like to someday get to see how magnificent you are inside too.
