The Tobacco Road is a bar in downtown MiamiFloridaUnited States. It is the oldest bar in the city. It opened in November 1912, is still in business,[1] and has operated nearly continuously since opening, having been shut down briefly at times for run-ins with the law, such as when the upstairs, now a live music venue, was used as aspeakeasy during Prohibition. Tobacco Road is located at 626 South Miami Avenue, on the south side of the Miami River, putting it in Miami's Brickell district, where it may be classified as a classic dive bar, being popular among locals. Tobacco Road and the surrounding historic buildings were potentially going to be demolished for the construction of Brickell CitiCenter, which is scheduled to begin construction in early 2012, but they will not be, as Swire did not purchase the lots. Tobacco Road will celebrate its 100th anniversary in November 2012. However, in April 2012, an unrelated investor purchased the large riverfront lot which includes Tobacco Road, though it has been stated that Tobacco Road has a three year lease and will remain open for at least that long before the lot is developed.[2]
