We Love this bar. Everytime we go down to Key West we love going there just to hang out and listen to the music. We were so excited to take some of our 1st time Key west friends there and they loved it also. It's not as crowded as some of the major bars can get like Sloppy Joe's, ect. Here's a tip: On your first night there buy a beer in a Ricks cup and you can refill it all night at discount, bring that cup back for the week and use it at a discount. Not for sure if your suppose to do it , but we do. You save like $2.00 a drink.
Dress Code: No shirt, no shoes, no problem.........
Located at the western end of the island, Mallory Square is the setting for one of Key West's most famous celebrations, Sunset Celebration. Each night hundreds of people gather to take part in this solar ritual with musicians, jugglers, and street performers serving as the warm up group for natures breathtaking finale. Vendors provide food and drink, hand painted T-shirts, jewelry and other island goods. Make sure to arrive at Mallory Square 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to sunset in order to fully take part in this spectacular event
Even daily life in Key West includes a certain off-beat sense of celebration. Each day's setting sun is celebrated and sometimes even applauded at Mallory Square
The original Sloppy Joes, now Capt. Tony's, was a favorite watering hole of author Ernest Hemingway when he lived in Key West.
