Tobacco Road Miami, established more than 90 years ago, is the oldest bar and restaurant in the city, and it's a popular destination location for anyone on a Miami vacation who's looking for the best dining, reasonable prices, and live music performances.
Tobacco Road has a colorful history, including playing host to blues legends B.B. King and Koko Taylor and as a hangout for the notorious gangster Al Capone. It also has the distinction of having held the first liquor license in Miami.
The club features two stages where each week live performances by local musicians keep patrons entertained with a variety of music styles including blues, folk, jazz, and heavy metal.
Besides live music and drink specials, Tobacco Road Miami is an award-winning restaurant, having won the titles of World's Best Burger and the Best Steak in Town. It's a popular destination for locals and is recognized as one of the best rock clubs and restaurants in Miami, with plenty of seating, music upstairs, the bar downstairs, and an outside patio for dining. Daily food and drink specials keep the bar busy.
Tobacco Road is busy during the week and happy hour, and it's especially crowded on the weekends. Parking is limited, so either take public transportation or arrive early if you plan to bring your rental car or other vehicle. Valet parking is available for $5, and there is a $10 cover charge to get into the bar after 9 pm on the weekends.
