After serving up drinks for more than a century, the original location of Miami’s famous Tobacco Road bar is no more.

Curbed reported the building, located at 626 South Miami Avenue, was demolished. The bar closed its doors on Oct.25 following a goodbye bash that drew a crowd of more than 4,000 people. However, the Tobacco Road legacy will live on in two forms.

The bar is slated to reopen next year in a new location at 69 Southwest 7th Street. Its name will also take to the ocean as part of a partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line. The 4,200-passenger Norwegian Escape, coming to Port Miami in November 2015, will feature a bar named Tobacco Road.

In the meantime, the bar is running a Kickstarter campaign to raise $50,000 for the preservation and transport of its famous neon sign, front doors, bar top and other historical items to the new location. [Curbed]Chris Guanche
