Key West

Most of the happening Key West nightspots are concentrated around Duval Street, especially lower Duval, which calls to mind Bourbon Street in New Orleans, just on a smaller scale. You’ll find that most venues are open to the street with loud music spilling out and spreading the party atmosphere.

Captain Tony’s Saloon

Drink in local flavor at the joint that housed Sloppy Joe's in the early '30s. Renamed in 1958 for its then-owner, the late Tony Tarracino (bootlegger, gambler, Key West character), it's decorated with business cards, abandoned bras, and a tree growing through its ceiling.

Margaritaville Café

Yup – that Margaritaville. Although touristy, it's always fun to be able to say you paid a visit to the restaurant/bar opened by the famous singer Jimmy Buffett.
