This was our fourth trip in six years to Key West and our second stay at the Speakeasy Inn. The location is perfect, on Duval but the quiet southern end. This trip we actually had to stay in three different rooms, because of availably when we booked. The first three nights were in 1A which is top floor front. It... More

I almost hesitate to write this review, because I want to keep this gem to myself, but it's too great a place to hide. The Rum bar is intimate with delicious, carefully crafted drinks and great people watching on Duval. The staff are beyond hospitable- when I needed a place to use my breast pump they let me borrow the... More

Very nice place. Beautiful little spot with a great staff. I will say that if you are going there for a drink, prepare for a wait. Its the kind of bar where you wont get a drink quickly but if your the type who likes yo chat with the bartenders then you be very happy. The drinks are well done.

Strong, yummy run drinks! So many types of rum! Including bobs homemade stash- he's a great bartender and rum connoisseur. Kept us entertained the entire {4 hours} we were there. Quaint small bar but very clean and fun. You could tell it was a locals place and tourist place alike! Can't wait to return.

We went to the bar and came back again, and again, and again. Incredible atmosphere, great service, and cheap and strong drinks. Very relaxed and not crazy like other bars in Key West. Go here immediately!

The Speakeasy Inn combines the charm of an old Key West town house with its special history and its privileged location on Duval street. My room 3A was accessible via a small side lane and was therefore a bit shielded from the hustle and bustle of Duval street. Surprisingly enough neither the noise from the street nor from the bar...

From our first call to make a reservation, to check-in, to tips for seeing Key West interacting with staff at the Speakeasy Inn and Rum Bar was outstanding. After reading about the lack of parking in the area we were concerned. Sam very calmly let us know we did not to worry. We booked room #2 which was a good... More

There are lots of places to get an "adult beverage" on Cayo Hueso (aka Bone Island, aka Key West.) And many of them are very good. You can go to the "party" end of Duval and have a great time... I've done it often. However, if you want to get away from all the craziness of the "party end", then... More

We spent Veterans Day week at the Speak Easy, in Room 2... Nice and quiet at night. Great front porch for a night cap from the Rum Bar. Porch is also a good place to enjoy the continental breakfast and people watch. The bar is usually filed with both locals and newbies. Kind of warm while we were there, and... More

Great location right on Duval St. It's a very short walk to southernmost point, a little further from the main bar area and Mallory square but its a straight shot and gives a nice sober up walk back. Free parking in a lot about a block away, location is good enough you won't drive the whole time. The only negative... More
