The Ybor Room is in the Ybor Building at the corner of 14th Street and 9th Avenue. Parking is available in the HCC lots and the Student Garage at Palm Avenue and Nuccio Boulevard.

On Your next trip to St. Augustine. Don’t miss…..
The St. Augustine Distillery’s Historic Ice Plant Building
Finding a place big enough to house a distillery and convenient enough to allow folks to visit and learn what we were creating, was no small task. The Historic Florida Power & Light Ice Plant was the one building that had everything we needed. St. Augustine Distillery is located inside of Florida’s oldest ice manufacturing plant. Our building was completed in 1917, and served as the model for FP&L ice plants across the State of Florida. Portions of our south wall actually date back to 1905! Ice manufacturing was essential to local fishing and shrimping industries, as well as agriculture, prior to modern refrigeration. All produce and seafood shipped by rail was cooled by ice made in our building. At one time, this facility produced 125 tons of ice in one day! The Ice Plant is a contributing building to the Lincolnville Neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places and was the first of its kind to make commercial block ice in Florida over 100 years ago……
During renovations to our facility, we uncovered steel beams and the bridge crane that moved the enormous ice blocks back and forth. As we learned more about the role of ice production and distilling in North Florida, we discovered an era when distilling was about crafting quality spirits rather than corporate efficiency. This is a legacy that we honor throughout our building and in producing our small-batch craft spirits such as vodka, gin, rum, and bourbon whiskey. In 2017, we will be celebrating the centennial of our building with events, specialty releases, and more. Stay tuned for more information!
Until your next trip to the Distillery . . .
