Captain Tony ’s Saloon is a bar located on the east side of Greene Street, (428 Greene Street) in Key West, Florida, United States.
The bar has been patronized through the years by many well-known artists, writers and celebrities. In fact, an interesting feature of the bar is that when any celebrity visits, a bar stool is added with that patron’s name. You will find bar stools painted with the names of famous people such as Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Duane Cahill, Jimmy Buffett, Shel Silverstein and even John F. Kennedy and Harry Truman, among others.
Above the sign outside the building is a large Jewfish that Captain Tony caught and had preserved. It is said that if you throw a quarter into the mouth of the fish, good luck will follow you until you leave the island.
