Sloppy Joe’s and Captain Tony’s

Sloppy Joe’s and Captain Tony’s, well Hemmingway lived in Key West for a couple years and ever since then Key West has been milking this for all it’s worth. Hemmingway’s favorite bar in Key West was Sloppy Joe’s and it has been an iconic place to go have a drink ever since. Apparently Sloppy Joe’s is not located where it used to be.  In Hemmingway’s day it was located where Captain Tony’s saloon is now. So you can either go have a drink where Hemmingway physically drank or you can go have a drink in the bar with the same name as where Hemmingway used to drink. Both bars are very popular especially with middle aged tourists. Captain Tony’s has a tree growing through the center of it, which is pretty neat. Sloppy Joe’s is bigger and sometimes has a lot of people in it. They both have live music sometimes.
