Basic bar on duval that appeals to Bostonites

Only stopped for drinks (happy hour went till 8pm), stayed for some good music. Was not as busy as other well known bars (sloppy joes/captain Tony's are always a mad house). Bar tenders were very friendly and talked baseball with us in between songs from a great local artist.

This is by far my favorite haunt in Key West. They make the best Rum Bucket. My husband and I were in Key West 4 years ago and stumbled upon this place on Duval street. This year, I couldn't wait to go back. Keep the Rum Buckets going!!

This place is a nice find in the busy downtown area. There happy hour was worth stopping in for. They have plenty of beer on tap as well as different mix drinks. I would choose this place over some of the others in the nearby area.

Southermost hub of Soxnation, with bartenders with the accent to boot. Aside from the Red Sox appeal, great house drinks and live music. My favorite bar in the Keys.

I was immediately put off by the smell; stale cigarettes, vomit and urine. The rumor was that the Lazy Gecko offered great Happy Hour fare, but honestly I was too nauseated to order food. The bathrooms were disgusting, so was the floor, and the table; then again, it's a BAR on Duval street, and I shouldn't have been too surprised... More

It was a very hot afternoon and we were so very hungry. As we walked down Duval, headed for another establishment, we passed this place. The cool air blowing out stopped us in our tracks. We popped in, looked at the menu options and prices and decided to stay. We were very happy with our decision. The atmosphere was nice,... More

I hadn't heard of this place. It didn't come up on my pre-vacation searches for happy hours or famous bars. But there it sits...right by Sloppy Joe's in the buzz of it all. And it's great! We had plans to go to Lazy Gecko's on a bar crawl, so we waited to check it out. On a Thursday afternoon, the... More

We didn't find anything outstanding about this bar. The drinks were good, as we expected, but nothing "to write home about", as they say.
