Sloppy Joe's Bar, once Havana's most famous bar and one of the most famous in the world, has reopened its doors with all its glitter.
Sloppy Joe's Bar was founded in 1918 by Jose Garcia a Spanish immigrant who capitalized on the U.S. Prohibition-era when American artists, baseball players and tourists visited Havana for the nightlife, the gambling, and the alcohol they could not obtain back home. During the 1940s and 1950s, it was a magnet for American celebrities as well as for tourists wanting to mingle with them. 90% of Sloppy Joe's clientele was American, including a long list of celebrities as John Wayne, Spencer Tracy, Ernest Hemingway, Joe Russell, Clark Gable, Nat King Cole, Ted Williams, Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, and Ava Gardner.
Among Sloppy Joe's most famous attractions was its spectacular 18-meter black mahogany bar, the longest that existed in Cuba. The bar, in its heyday, can be seen in the movie "Our Man in Havana" based on the novel by British author Graham Greene.
The restoration, undertaken by the Office of the Historian of Havana, was a complex and extensive process, to reopen the bar with its entire splendor, just as it used to be. The facade closely resembles the images from the 1950's, even down to the sign on the corner. Upon entering, you breathe in that '50s atmosphere that characterized the place.
The bar stands between several hotels on the central corner of Zulueta and Animas streets, on the same block as Plaza Hotel, and not far from the famous El Floridita bar/restaurant in Old Havana.April 14th, 2013
