Considered Miami’s Oldest Bar, The Road has survived 10 decades of change: within it’s historic walls, and through the many adaptations of the neighborhood.  As Tobacco Road turns 100, it witnesses the biggest change yet; thousands of acres of open bulldozed land on 3 sides, and construction just beginning for what will be the towering Brikell CitiCenter, it’s anyone’s guess what lies in store for the Road and the neighborhood it’s called home for 100 years.  Tobacco Road has been many things; from a prohibition speakeasy hideout for Al Capone, a desolate working-man’s watering hole during the great depression, a stark salon with a country at War, threatened by many deadly hurricanes, ground-zero for race-riots, cocaine cowboys, and a big brother to the rise and fall and rise of South Beach — the Road has seen it all.  Through its time as a gambling den owned by the Chief of Police, a gay bar, strip joint and blues bar the two-story structure remains virtually unchanged since its inception in the early 1900s.

Tobacco Road turns 100 Years Old with a celebration slammed packed with top local and national artists, perfromances, muscians, festivals & BBQs — the Road Warriors will even show they can still compete with the kids at the upcoming Red Bull Flug Tag with a flying Birthday Cake lunged into Biscayne Bay on Novemebr 3rd in Bayfront Park.
