SLOPPY JOE'S KEY WEST
Sloppy Joe's Key West
A CONCH TRADITION
A Key West must-visit: Sloppy Joe's Bar. With deep ties to Ernest Hemingway and a storied past, it's our partner in (legal) crime when it comes to history, rum, and community. Add in a few dozen Papas and you've got a helluva party.
Sloppy Joe's was Hemingway's hangout on the island!
Sloppy Joe's Official Rum For
Just like the legendary tales spun by Hemingway himself, Sloppy Joe's Rum Runners, crafted exclusively with Key West Legal Rum, tell a story of rich island heritage. So, when you raise a glass at Sloppy Joe's Bar, you're toasting to a taste of history, just like Papa Hemingway did.
Sloppy Joe’s Annual Hemingway®
Every July, Key West transforms into a Hemingway's haven as hundreds of Papa Hemingways hit the streets. Their mission: to have a blast, nab the Look-Alike trophy, and raise funds for the HLAS scholarship, supporting Florida Keys students. We're thrilled to be part of the action, fueling the fest with limited-edition bottles, co-hosting the live auction, having a booth at the running of the bulls, and, of course, providing barrels of rum!
Over 160 Hemingway Look-Alike's compete each year. That's a lot of Papas!
