Fodor's Review

When it was the original Sloppy Joe's in the mid-1930s, Hemingway was a regular. Later, a young Jimmy Buffett sang here and made this watering hole famous in his song "Last Mango in Paris." Captain Tony was even voted mayor of Key West. Yes, this place is a beloved landmark. Stop in and take a look at the 'hanging tree' that grows through the roof, listen to live music seven nights a week, and play some pool.

Best bar for locals & tourists

This bar is the real deal! No attitudes or glitzy tourist BS. Pure fun and good relaxed times. Nightly music from solo guitar singer to full band. Where else can you visit a bar with a former hanging tree growing inside? If you're lucky THE Captain Tony may be there when you visit. Well worth a visit and a whole world better than SJs (pretentious tourist trap).
