In the location of the original Sloppy Joe’s, this dingy joint was owned for about 30 years by Captain Tony Tarracino. A charter boat captain, former mayor and local celebrity, Captain Tony was as salty as Key West itself. The bar reflects the memory of his earthiness with the ceiling, pilings and walls covered with license plates, business cards and ladies’ panties. A thick tree erupts from the floorboards and goes through an opening in the roof. Tony often greeted repeat customers with a handshake and the comment, “I’m truly sorry if I stepped on your face last night.” You’ll usually encounter a jovial and feel-good crowd on hand (or on the floor) here.
