I visited Joe's on two occasions, both in the early evening. The bar is relatively small. There is a small covered patio area as you walk in. The bar is on the left and runs about 3/4 of the length of the space. There are TVs on the right side with high top tables underneath. Past the high tops, you will find a small smoke shop with cigarettes and cigars. In the back, there is a well worn pool table and a foosball table. On the wall to the left of the gaming tables there is a change machine.

The main attraction here is the ability to smoke. If you're looking for a spot to burn a cigar and have a drink, this is the place. The bar is well stocked, and there is always sports on the numerous TVs.

The bartenders were friendly and attentive. I will be coming back here again.

Took forever to get a drink, no bartender acknowledged our presence, door men were over aggressive (enough to want to make us wonder if we were in the US.) Come on! What happen to customer service!? Get real guys! Hope the rest of Sarasota is not like this!

This is social central downtown. The landmark bar that gets the most mixed crowd of any establishment. You'll get everything from the dude-bro's to the Cougars to the drag queens. This should be your first stop downtown. Also their drinks are VERY reasonably priced. Usually with a beer coming in at $3.00-4. PBR is their cheapest one. They make one HELL of a Disarono & Coke, Whiskey Sour and tasty shots.

Smokin' Joes is a great indoor/outdoor bar. They have a lot of TVs, a friendly staff and a lot of good beer on tap.
