Tobacco Road bar escapes to a cruise ship

Miami’s oldest and most legendary bar, Tobacco Road, will find a new home aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest and largest ship, Norwegian Escape.

The bar, which was issued Miami’s very first alcohol licence, closed its original location last month after 102 years in business. Located within 678 Ocean Place, the new location of the celebrated tavern will incorporate elements of the original bar, including the iconic neon sign, memorabilia and photographs. 

Norwegian Escape will begin weekly seven-night cruises from her year-round homeport of Miami to the Eastern Caribbean on 14 November 2015. The ship will be the largest to be based year-round in Miami, carrying 4,200 guests to Caribbean destinations including St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Tortola, British Virgin Islands and Nassau, Bahamas.
