Visited on October 29 to see the show about 9:30pm and right away the female bartender dressed in the black costume with the yellow cape had ATTITIDE. When I went to give her our orders, I ordered 4 drinks, then looked behind me to other friends. She said, "I want the whole order, don't think you are going to have... More

This is the center of the action, so a good place to start the night but even better to end the night. Great music and a great mix of crowd that is there for 1 reason to have a lot of fun.

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!
