Sloppy Joe's - A Key West TraditionDrink with the ghost of Ernest Hemingway at the most famous bar in the Florida Keys. Endearingly named after its original owner, Joe Russell, this historic saloon has been a Key West mainstay since opening the day Prohibition ended. Before that, Hemingway and Russell often met over illicit bottles of bootlegged liquor at a number of speakeasies in the Caribbean. As alcohol was made legal, the beloved writer and his friends became frequent fixtures at Sloppy Joe's, known for its live music and round-the-clock revelry.
