Tobacco Road Closing, Becoming Bar Aboard Norwegian Cruise Ship in 2015

Only three days till Tobacco Road closes.

But today, a news conference was held at the almost-102-year-old club to reaffirm that "Miami's oldest bar will live on."

As reported by Crossfade seven months ago, the Road's staff, led by General Manager Joel Rivera, plans to raise money and move to 69 SW Seventh St. (Donate to the relocation campaign via kickstarter.com/profile/TobaccoRoad.)

However, the real news from this afternoon's media event: Tobacco Road has brokered a deal for a bar on a new Norwegian cruise ship, the Escape, debuting in November 2015.
