If you like people watching there is no better place than the balcony on the 2nd floor. Just sit there with a beer and watch life on Duval Street. Beware the roof top bar is a nudist zone!! Don't go up there unprepared!

Had a couple of drinks with friends up on the balcony overlooking Duval Street. Great view of a lively street. Pleasant bar staff.

This is a fun and interesting place (to say the least).....be aware that the upper-level is clothing optional. Nakkie-as-a-Jaybird like clothing optional. So if you're not ready for that....stay at Sloppy Joe's ... much tamer....

Greatest location on all of Duval, but can't stay long, hurt your ears with the terrible bands they get! It is usually empty...why? Boring, bad music, no food. Ok drink prices, go upstairs to second bar and sit on balcony for a great view, people watching.

This bar is a great location to do some good people watching. You have birds eye view of Duval Street. The staff is great. The live music is rocking every time we visit.

I stopped in for a cold beer on a hot afternoon. No entertainment at the time, so I went upstairs to the Whistle and sat in the shade on the terrace overlooking Duval. Very relaxing watching the tourists and locals below. Staff and patrons were very friendly, and the beer was nice and cold. Stage is on the first floor,... More

I really enjoyed myself at these two bars. Loved the White Russian drinks while sitting out on the balcony watching all the crazies walk the street. Always nice music playing while sitting and chatting with all sorts of friendly faces. A must place to go if your visiting Key West!

The Bull Bar downstairs is a great location for people watching, especially durning the day. The large windows facing Duval St.are the best! The live music by Gary was easy to listen to and Debbie did a great job keeping the drinks flowing!

The bar downstairs had great live music, the people upstairs were so friendly and were respectful in the clothing optional rooftop bar. There was also a DJ! On the rooftop, you could get body painting. He did a great job, but be careful, he is a scammer. I asked how much, he said $25. After finished, I gave him $35,... More

Was in Key West for Cinco de Mayo stopped by for a drink and stayed for 5 hours. Yankee Jack had us rolling on the floor. Everyone was into the show and the bartender was awesome. Will become a tradition
