We visit the rum bar several times each trip to key west. The cocktails are expertly made by incredibly friendly bartenders. Definitely recommend stopping in for 1 or 5 drinks!

We stopped by for our second visit. The bartender was excellent at her job! The service was top notch in this tiny place and the drinks were flavorful and heavy on the liquor. Our type of bar!

Lori (spelling?) was our bartender and she was amazing! We enjoyed the drinks and the conversation. We bought the reusable straws and carry them everywhere.

Great bar and the bartenders are extremely knowledgeable about rum. Relaxing and a good place to smoke a cigar and have rum neat. They carry brands of rum that I have never heard of. Great establishment.

I'm so glad we found this little rum bar. The staff was so friendly the people in the bar were great. Only a few seats in this place but you don't want to miss this place. We ended up staying for a few drinks.

I only call this place a best kept "secret" because it does not stand out very much when you're walking down Duval. However, step inside and get ready to be treated to a really fun time! I'm surprised to see that anyone has anything negative...More
