Tobacco Road Celebrates its 100th Birthday

imageThe city’s oldest bar with the gloriously checkered past celebrates its 100th birthday.

The oldest bar in the city, a two-story dive, is still standing, surviving 10 decades of change, rambunctious turns as a prohibition speakeasy, a gambling hall, jazz club and a burlesque.

But in its most enduring chapter, Tobacco Road is a remarkably ordinary, beloved neighborhood spot good for a drink, a meal, conversation and live music, blues and other stuff too.
