A wonderful, quiet rum bar on the south end of Duval (away from the chaos). She made us painkillers that were delicious and rich. We sat inside and the ambiance was that of a quiet local bar. Amazingly, the price was only $9 each. Fabulous...More

Well this place has to be one of the best rum bars I have ever been to! A huge range (over 300) and very generous pours. We enjoyed an afternoon at the rum bar soaking in the steady pace of Key West.More

Awesome atmosphere. We were listening to some great music and the bartender Brent introduced himself and recommended a great drink. We also met some locals sitting there who gave us some great island tips. Can't wait to go back on our next trip.
