Great night spot

Grab some food and drinks on the weekend-great spot for late 20s early 30s crowd. We joined a beer pong tournament and had a hilarious time.

Unfortunately, Tobacco Road closed down after almost 102 years of spectacular service, drinks, and music. This place was always booming with people, good vibes, amazing drink specials, and yearly events such as the Crawfish Boil and Seafood Festival. It will soon be re-opening at a new location and I am sure it will continue to be a big hit. I... More

Unfortunately the bar with the oldest liquor license (formerly) is closed. I had lots of great times here for happy hour, benefits, food trucks and bands. Hopefully the new location will be at least half as awesome.

Tobacco Road is a Miami landmark and treasure. Unfortunately, it is soon to close. I am so glad I got to experience this one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Downstairs, you get the real feel of a dive bar that is over a century old yet still a hangout of the trendsetters. upstairs, you can order a craft cocktail worthy of any Manhattan hipster... More

I just went to the Upstairs Bar in Tobacco road as I heard of a Special Cocktail menu. Leo, who I assumed has leased the bar has created an amazing cocktail menu with interesting combinations. I had a smokey whiskey where he uses a torch to burn a piece of wood that is on the bar and then tilts the... More

Best diver bar in Miami! And the oldest! Also some of the best BBQ in town (pulled pork=yum). Check out the new upstairs also and try their exclusive cocktail menu. You'll be glad you did.

This place is cool to check out local bands and hangout, but watch out for the rude staff on the outdoor patio. Wow!! I have never been treated so rudely in my life. I've been there twice and was treated horribly both times. The food is okay. If they make a mistake, they outright blame it on you like it's... More

As many of you may know, Tobacco Road is the oldest bar in Miami. For visitors is a must (not every time you get to go to the oldest anything when visiting a city), and for locals is a laid back place for drinks, music, and food. Last time I was there I decided to try the food. People recommended... More

We checked this restaurant last evening. Very cheap place in all aspectcs but nice to see. Food was delicious. We had lobster and stake and both were fine. No. automatic gratitude, but staff deserved the tip. We didnt stay long enough to hear the band... But I think you shouldn't miss this authentic place :)

Went here at lunch time to check the vibe and the offerings. Of course, it wasn't late night with an event going on - but rather a quiet, historic tavern with just the right atmosphere and service for that time of day. Unfortunately, the beer selection didn't include microbrews, local or from anywhere else. So I had a Guinness draught,... More
