Duval Street offers plenty of Open-Air Bars and many shops


Duval Street offers abundant possibilities to shop and to drink - Sloppy Joe's Bar is perhaps the most famous one on the stretch since it was Ernest Hemingway's favorite bar where he spent much of his time and money. By the way, Hemingway once took one of the bar's urinals home with him and built with it the trough at the base of the cat drinking fountain.

"Sloppy Joe" Russel's bar opened officially on December 5, 1933, when the prohibition was repealed.

Duval Street begins just a 100 yards away from the Southernmost Point and runs northwest to to Mallory Square which is a little more than one mile.
