Norwegian Cruise Line will be re-positioning Miami’s oldest bar, Tobacco Road, aboard the Norwegian Escape.
The establishment was issued Miami’s very first liquor license, and is closing its original location this week after 102 years in business. In an effort to preserve the tradition of the Miami landmark, Tobacco Road and Norwegian Cruise Line partnered to bring the Tobacco Road experience onboard Norwegian Escape, which will begin sailing from Miami in November 2015.
Located within 678 Ocean Place, the new location of the celebrated tavern will incorporate elements of the original Tobacco Road, including its neon sign, memorabilia and photographs that will showcase the history of Miami through the lens of events and happenings at the bar over the past century.
The Tobacco Road Bar onboard Norwegian Escape will also offer a selection of cocktails created by Tobacco Road’s resident mixologist, Leo Holtzman. The libations from Holtzman’s Cocktail Collection will include the Chili Mule, including ginger puree, Cointreau and vodka topped with a sliced seranno pepper; and the Gateway, a rum-based drink that incorporates yuzu juice, elderflower syrup and Prosecco.
