Tobacco Road is Miami’s oldest bar, first opening it’s doors in 1912 and has continuously been serving ever since. The bar definitely has it’s scars as it’s been in use from the Capone Era of Prohibition serving bootlegged hooch in the back to the cocaine wars of the 80’s.
It’s located a little off the traditional tourist areas and some may even say it’s in a dodgy area of the city, but this is the place to be for music lovers. On any given night the crowd is as eclectic as the musicians the play there. Most nights you will find Blues and or Jazz bands playing to the wee hours of the night, but midweek is usually Rock/indie bands bringing the house down.
Tobacco Road is open 7days a week with daily happy hour specials that keep their regulars coming back from 11am – 5am!
Food is average and unfortunately so is the service most nights….but the atmosphere and history of the “Road” can’t be beat and I would put it on the list of places to stop by for at least once if you are in Miami.
