Tobacco Road, known as the oldest bar in Miami, has secured a new home.

The iconic bar had its last call in October, and since then patrons have been waiting to hear where Tobacco Road would take up residence. 

The bar is expected to reopen in January 2016 at 69 Southwest Seventh Street.

A lot of the old pieces of Tobacco Road will become decorative memorabilia along the walls of the new location, like handbills, fliers from past events and photos. The bartop and the neon sign also made it out of the old place.

It closed after completing its 102nd birthday. Real estate developers bought the property.
