This place is the diviest of dives and is one of the last if not the only true KW bar, although props to Don's on Truman and maybe Green Parrot. Log may it reign (although I doubt it)!

There has been a bar here since the 60's with several owners. Some years back it served pretty good pizza and chili but that stopped and there is NO food here now, not that I would eat it anyway! It is just an old bar now. Sort of smelly, inattentive barkeeps, but does have local residents late at night, ping-pong... More

We first visited the Purple Porpoise about 20 years ago. It was a dump then, but I was a bit more adventurous back then. That day there was a biker wedding going on. What a hoot. The bride had an ankle tether because she was on probation for something. The place was full of drunk tattooed people, most of whom... More

I like this bar alot! It serves everthing for drinks. Not just beer and wine. It can get alittle warm in there do to know air condition. But over all, you make friends there quick and the bar tender is very up to beat and very nice and funny.

I obviously haven't had to smoke what the other reviewers had ! Look in the dictionary under Dive and the PP Pub will be there. You want to slum this is the place.

Great place and you will not find a bunch of Jimmy Buffett loving tourist here. The beer is cold, bartenders are great and there is always some good conversation going on. This is a must stop for anyone looking for that Key West of yesteryear or just a fun bar to hang out at.

If you are looking for a true local experience this place it not to be missed. No food at this place just cheep drinks and good fun. The pool table is a riot! Stop... More
