The official beginning of Sloppy Joe’s Bar, the famous and infamous Key West saloon, was December 5, 1933–the day Prohibition was repealed. The bar was destined to go through two name changes and a sudden change of location before it would become Sloppy Joe’s, seen by millions of visitors to Florida’s southernmost outpost. It was Hemingway, a favorite patron from the start, who encouraged its name change to Sloppy Joe’s. Today, the same authentic, relaxing, fun and friendly atmosphere that so many have grown to love lives on in every Sloppy Joe's location.
