Inspired from another thread, here are some joints that seem to act as unoffical Seamen’s Clubs in various ports. Now, some of my information may be dated; and of course much has changed since the early 90’s.
Stoney’s in Tampa, also mentioned in the other thread.
South Port Raw Bar in Port Everglades/Fort Lauderdale. Back in the days before cell phones, the pay phone there was a hard one to get to. Lots of tanker crews in there.
Freddie’s Anchor Inn in Port Everglades/Fort Lauderdale. As I recall, one got a free round for supplying a life ring. Lots of life rings on the walls.
Gator Bowl Inn in Jacksonville, Florida. Very handy when in the North Florida Shipyard.
Annie’s in Lake Charles, but largely due to the Crowley presence there. Joint is still open, but with Crowley gone, not too many maritime folks hang out there.
Chateau Inn in Corpus Christi, Texas. Gone now.
New Shamrock Bar, Manila
London Bar, Jumbo Bar, Radio Bar; Tanjung Priok
Rainbow Gardens (Bugo Hilton), Bugo, Phillipines
Ned Kelly’s Last Stand, Hong Kong
Willie’s Hawiian Hut, San Juan, Puerto Rico
Colacho’s, San Juan Puerto Rico
Lots more that I cannot recall just now. . . .(or probably just erased or intentionally forgotten)
