If you’ve been to Miami and you’re a beer lover, you’ve realized they are not. When I say they, I mean the majority. I went to many bars, restaurants and asked, “What craft beers do you have?” I was returned a “CRAP BEER!!?? We don’t have crap beer man! We have Bud, Miller, Miller Light…” and occasionally, “On draft we have…” (In fact, I’m probably going to copy past that whole diatribe about craft beer into many other reviews from around the country because, surprisingly, once you leave North Carolina, a major craft beer state, you realize how good you have it. So, after realizing how few people in Miami, respectively, appreciated good craft beer I hopped on Beer Advocate to find some good craft beer distributors/restaurants in Miami. I found Lokal! Not only one of the best craft beer establishments in Miami, it’s also one of the BEST craft beer establishments in the country.

Here for over 300 years
O’Neill’s has existed as a licensed premises for over 300 years, long before the street on which it was named. But the area of Suffolk Street has over 1000 years played a vital administrative, commercial and cultural role in the formation of Dublin history. In Viking times, this area was in its most powerful position as O’Neill’s is built on the exact location upon which the Norse “Thingmote” or Parliament was located. This Thingmote was an earthen mound which stood about 40 feet high and had a circumference of 240 ft. This mound was used by the Danes as the place where their laws were promulgated. Later King Henry II had a temporary palace built at the mound for his meeting in 1172 with the Irish chiefs. Here he received submissions from several Irish chiefs and entertained them with military displays. Later in Medieval times it served as a place for public entertainment and even executions. In 1681 it was levelled by order of the Chief Justice and the earth was used to raise the level of Naussau Street to prevent flooding. Excavations in Suffolk Street have unearthed weapons from the Norse period which are now in the National Museum of Ireland.

The story of Sir William Temple
born 1555 – died 1627
In 1599, Sir William Temple, a renowned teacher and philosopher, entered the service of the Lord Deputy Of Ireland. In 1609 Temple was made Provost of Trinity College, Dublin and Master Chancery in Ireland and moved to this country.
Sir William Temple built his house and gardens on newly reclaimed land here on the corner of Temple Lane and the street called Temple Bar. In 1656, his son, Sir John Temple, acquired additional land, which with reclamation made possible by the building of a new sea wall, allowed the development of the area we now know as Temple Bar.
In the 17th century ‘Barr’ (later shortened to Bar) usually meant a raised estuary sandbank often used for walking on. Thus the river Liffey embankment alongside the Temple family’s plot became known as Temple’s Barr or simply Temple Bar. Later this evolved into the present thoroughfare connecting this whole area from Westmoreland Street to Fishamble Street.

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.
