Key West FL is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Captain Tony's Saloon. Come Explore it with Haunted Journeys.


Captain Tony’s Saloon was built in 1851 and originally served as an icehouse and morgue. In the 1890s, it was a wireless telegraph station.  In 1912, the building was a cigar factory and later a bordello. Between 1933 and 1937, Ernest Hemingway spent most of his evenings here. When the landlord raised the rent one dollar per week in 1937, the owner and his customers took everything in the entire bar and moved to Sloppy Joe’s current location at 201 Duval Street. Captain Tony Tarracino purchased the bar in 1958 and renamed it Captain Tony’s Saloon. The saloon’s namesake was a fishing boat captain gunrunner, gambling casino operator and Mayor of Key West.  


Employees have heard voices calling out to them and doors in the ladies restroom are locked for no reason. The tree inside Captain Tony's was a hanging tree and a woman who was hanged from the tree for killing her husband has been seen.
