beers til 9 a.m., the Royal James is open. Breakfast and burgers, the James is that lower echelon joint you seek where sailors are the only early customers M-F. Across the street, the Cru Wine bar opens at 7 with both coffee and beer
but is too toney for you.
The Tradewinds had a great rep for available women in the evenings but the town has lost
it cachet for real cruisers due to restrictive anchoring
issues. The bartender stole $5 off the bar while I went to the head
, the one time I was there.
, you can leave yer Iphone
and wallet in any bar and expect to get 'em back in the morning.
In Key Largo
, it's the Depot. Islamorada has my fav, the Safari Lounge, good spot in the afternoon. Marathon has the Monkey Bar. Things are all more gentrified day by day. I'm heading down this winter purely on a research
basis. You can email
me in Jan for a more up-to-date assessment. I am one of the last of the old mossback sailors: No Blog.
