Tobacco Road According to the BBC’s Guide to Life, the Universe, and Everything

Surprisingly, H2G2, the BBC’s Guide to “Life, the Universe, and Everything“, has a neat profile of Tobacco Road, Miami’s oldest bar. The Brickell Village nightspot has been in business since 1912. According to the featured article Tobacco Road has:

“managed to survive everything from gangsters and the Depression to hurricanes and attempts by the city of Miami to shut it down. In 1982 it got a new lease of life when the new owners repositioned it as a blues bar, just as the nearby Brickell Avenue started to fill up with high-rise offices, hotels and businesses. It’s now a considerably successful place that hasn’t lost any of its old charm.”
