    I saw it but don't know the name of the street. It is the street that you take to go to the most southern point. There were lots of shops. We were on duvalle street & went about 4-5 blocks then we started going south. We passed a drugstore. I think it was CVC?. that was the street we took. hope someone esle can help

    Ooopps... :blush: ...As usual, Shirley is all over it...I saw 500 Green St., instead of Duval...oh well, I tried. Thanks for bailing me out Shirley! :thumbsup2
    Here is the corrected location:

    Corner of Duval & Fleming Street
    www.margaritaville.com
    Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Cafe
    500 Duval St.
    Key West, FL

    Jimmy Buffett's place is right next door to Fast Buck Freddywhich at one time this whole complex was SH Kress and the conchs only 5 and Dime store this side of Miami and where all the main shopping was done, Margaritaville gift shop is part of Jimmy Buffett - this is the main store and located on the corner of Duval and Fleming street which is about 5 blocks South of Mallory Square on the West side - You will pass the Oldest House in Key West which is located almost on the corner of Green and Duval Street, you will pass the St Paul's church which is the oldest church in Key West, you will pass the La Concha which is now I believe a Holiday Inn - cross the street and there you are.
    Hope that helps

    I don't know if JB ever lived in Ocho Rios, but I know he lived in KW for quite sometime until he felt it was no longer a place to raise kids so he moved over to the Southeast side of Miami - I found the one in KW very expensive and even tho I love his music and I did get several of his CD's, it still was expensive to eat there.
    Always

    Anybody have an update on the Margaritaville in Grand Cayman? I had heard it was opening this month, but I don't see anything listed on the website.

    Right on!
    So, I just made myself a pre-Cinco de Mayo margarita as we are having a dinner party and this very question jumped out at me from the back of the tequila bottle...here is what it says:

    "Where is Margaritaville?

    "It's in the tropics somewhere between the Port of Indecision and Southwest of Disorder, but no parallels of latitude or longitude mark the spot exactly. You don't have to be a navigator to get there. Palm trees provide the camouflage. Ocean breezes bring the seaplanes and sailboats, tourists, and travelers. Passports are not required. Island music rules. No waiting lines for anything.

    "There is a beach and a thatched roof bar perched on the edge of the turquoise sea where you can always find a bar stool. There are lots of lies and loads of stories. It's a comical concoction that blends together like tequila, salt, and limes. Where is Margaritaville? It's in your mind..."

    Ahh there, I shall take another sip! :cloud9:
    Enjoy!

    Yes, to the general public... inside joke among co-workers... forgot that the rest of the world has no idea why 'southeast of disorder' is funnier... sorry!
