The Original Sloppy Joe’s Bar: Captain Tony’s Saloon

Night Clubs, Photography, Travel

190 Captain Tony's Saloon
Anyone familiar with Ernest Hemingway is likely familiar with his love of Key West, and probably also with his love for Sloppy Joe’s Bar. But Sloppy Joe’s in his day was not where it is now, but rather at what is today the location of Captain Tony’s Saloon on Greene Street south of Duval. Of course you can pretty well get liquor in either one, but for those inclined to history, Captain Tony’s is the actual location where Hemingway got hammered.
