On the day Prohibition was repealed, the liquor lovers of Key West, Florida, rejoiced by opening Sloppy Joe’s Bar. Four years later, in 1937, the watering hole moved into a vacated Cuban restaurant on the corner of Duval and Green streets. It’s been there ever since. The story goes that the move was less of an official endeavor, and more of a slight interruption in the bar’s daily activity. Patrons simply got up from their stools, walked across the street to the establishment’s present-day location, sat down, and resumed their drinking and conversation. That’s the kind of easy-going attitude you’ll find in Key West, and certainly inside Sloppy Joe’s.
