If you’re looking for a classic, funky-dive Happy Hour joint in Miami, put Tobacco Road on your list. It opened in 1912 and has a shady past as a strip club, gambling bar and speakeasy. Former part-time Miami resident Al Capone visited often. The Road has a tradition of offering Happy Hour drinks that cost a penny for every year of its existence. Munch on free appetizers and enjoy blues and rock bands. You’ll mix with an eclectic crowd, from dread-wearing rastas to corporate executives. Hours: Daily, 11:30 a.m. to 5 a.m.
