Lonely Planet review

Propagandists would have you believe the nearby megabar complex of Sloppy Joe’s was Hemingway’s original bar, but the physical place where the old man drank was right here, the original Sloppy Joe’s location (before it was moved onto Duval St and into frat-boy hell). Hemingway’s third wife (a journalist sent to profile Papa) seduced him in this very bar, wallpapered with business cards from around the world (including this travel writer’s).
