“Best bar in Key West”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Nuditiy or not, this is the best bar in Key West. Cheap drinks, best music in town and a cooling breeze on the outdoor roof terrace makes it a perfect ten. That is if you don't get offended by seeing naked bodies, but then again maybe Key West isn't the place for you anyway. Also a bar where everyone is as friendly as they get, so the only thing lacking is that bar service could be a little bit faster at times. Sit down, have a chat with some new pople under the stars and let the good times roll.

“You have to visit at least once.”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Fun times had by all. Great dj and the bartenders rock! Not many old naked men. More of a younger crowd.

“Fun Night Out With Nudity”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This is an infamous place here in Key West. There is a normal bar on the first and second floor with a clothing optional on the roof.

The roof deck is nice during the good weather with the breezes cooling you off and being able to dance under the stars. The main attraction of course is the nudity. Some night there will be only a few and others everyone is au natural. There are many looky-loos but don't worry as no cameras or cell phones are allowed on the roof deck.

As the night wears on and you drink more you seem to shed more and more of your clothing. The DJ the nights I went was playing music from all over the spectrum. Don't worry after several drinks you too will dance to the Jackson 5.

I did notice there were several couples here from the "lifestyle" that were here to meet and greet. If you don't know what that means then don't worry because they won't be asking you for anything.

The crowd is very friendly as well as the staff. You could as we did have a great conversation with a naked couple about their adventures in nudity.

“Entertaining”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

During our week visit to Key West we stopped here twice. It's quite the walk up the steep stairs but worth it for the entertainment you'll get. The first night we went it was quite lively with a few older men nude, 1 woman nude and a few topless. The bar seems to be typically full which makes it hard to get a drink. The music is decent for dancing. We never saw anyone doing body painting. There are a few areas around the dance floor to sit down. The second time we went, at first no one was nude but eventually a few of the regulars men got nude and one women went topless and had a hilariously good dance party. The one guy really owned the dance floor. If you want some good entertainment and have an open mind, come here.

“keep on going”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Average at best!

Most bodies are better suited to have cloths on, very few look good without! I guess its just one of those places that you want to stop to see for yourselve.
