Here on a Weeknight? This is Your Place.

Sarasota can be sleepy on weeknights in the spring (outside of spring break at least). A group of us were wandering around St. Armands Key looking for signs of life and more than one local suggested that Smokin Joe's is always busy. We decided to check it out and they were right.

Smokin Joes is a wonderful local pub. Friendly staff...Jen is the BEST! A great place to hang out or stop in just for a cocktail. They are always having special events that are always a blast! A happy place for happy people... Go see for yourselves you won't be sorry...and ask for Jen, tell her Michael sent you!

The most unbelievable experience of my life. Got of a plane and had some time to waste. The bartender expects every man in there to kiss here you know what and pay here for standing there. She isn't that good looking! She ignores you and you are worthless! I would never go there again and tell anyone else that goes... More

This bar ruined my new years eve and actually caused me and my fiance to get injured. As we were leaving due to the horrible service we received and rude treatment, a group of colored people, at least 6, started pounding me in the face and shoved my woman to the ground. Due to the large crowd the police couldn't... More

Interesting Old School Pub where you can buy a Cigar and actually smoke it. It seems to be a younger crowd and if your a bit timid this place isn't for you.they also have pool tables

As it's name suggests this is a great bar for those of the population who still are slaves to nicotine. Can be really noisy and it can be a while to et served but it has great atmosphere and is like going back 30 years in time.
