“Old Time Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

This reminded me of when I was a little kid because we used to find this type of entertainment a lot more even though it was rare then too. It is just good fun with sometimes cheesy entertainment but for the most part is just a really playful good time.
I won't mention specific acts but some just panhandle for money and tell bad jokes. Honestly, one guy just does ONE 'trick' the entire time you stand there. The rest of the time he talks about how he relies on this for his income. A lot of people left because he talked to much and never got to his act. He said it was his birthday. I have a feeling he has a birthday once a week.
But I have to plug John. He is so sweet, honestly funny and does a few acrobatic stunts that really take skill. He is the guy in my picture. He deserves his tip!
All in all, good acts, fun, different and great people watching!
We had to leave because the kids kept wanting to give $2 ea. to every act and we were going broke!

“Most Entertaining Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Go for the sunset and stay for the street artists. Extraordinary talent ranging from unicyclist/jugglers, to dollar bill fetching dog. We went a couple of times during our month-long stay and saw different acts each time.

Sunsets are hit and miss and never predictable. There are many places on the island from which to see the sunset, but at Mallory you'll become part of the entertainment.

Must do while in Key West.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had expected lots of people, poor entertainment and expensive cocktails.

True, it was packed with people, but what does it matter when it was such a lovely atmosphere, fun and talented jester performances and an incredibly beautiful and evocative sunset.

And the price of the drinks was perfectly OK

“Nice for the sunset festivities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Visited for sunset...this is a lively gathering full of street performers, food & drink vendors, souvenir vendors & lots of fellow tourists. The sunset is beautiful, but I'm easily drawn to sunsets. I did it once, that was probably enough as it's a bit too crowded for me & prefer a more mellow sunset.
