Captain Tony's Saloon

Favorite watering hole of such legends as Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Shel Silverstein and Jimmy Buffet, Captain Tony’s Saloon is not just a bar it is a piece of living history.

The saloon’s namesake, fishing boat captain gunrunner, gambling casino operator and Mayor of Key West--the late Captain Tony, was a larger than life character who was often described as a dropout from a Hemingway novel.

Originally built in 1851 as an icehouse that doubled as a morgue, Captain Tony’s Saloon is steeped in history. When you stop  in for a cold one, remember you are drinking where legends have been drinking for decades.
