Key Largo

“What’s it all about? Well, booze, for starters. But breathtaking sunsets, rich history, live music and livelier folks are quick to fill out this one-of-a-kind-Key Largo landmark.” – Caribbean Club Website

Billed as “one of the last relics of Old Key Largo,” the Caribbean Club (Mile Marker 104 Bayside) first opened in 1938 as a “poor man’s fishing retreat” and has been locally owned and operated since 1963. The Caribbean Club, which is filled with memorabilia from the 1948 film Key Largo (exterior shots from the movie, which starred Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were filmed here), features live music Thursday through Sunday nights, daily happy hours and amazing sunsets.


The marina at the Holiday Inn Key Largo (Mile Marker 100) is home to the original boat used in the classic 1951 movie, The African Queen, which was directed by legendary director John Huston and starred Humphrey Bogart (Bogie won his only Academy Award for his memorable role as Charlie Allnut), Katherine Hepburn (Rose Sayer) and Robert Morley (Rev. Samuel Sayer). The film was adapted from a 1935 novel by C. S. Forester. Built in Lytham, England, in 1912, the African Queen was used by the British East Africa Company on the Victoria Nile and Lake Albert until 1968.
