“Nick from The Rum Bar is the Best!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We visited The Rum Bar several times during our stay and had a great experience with Nick (the Bartender). He gave us great tips on where to go in Key West and was a joy to be around while we drank our delicious banana rum. We will definitely be back to The Rum Bar when we return. Thanks Nick!

We love this place. I'm going against my husbands wishes by writing this review because he is afraid if more people find out about the Speakeasy we won't be able to get a room the next time we head to Key West. We loved the helpful staff, Barbara Bobbie, Bob and Chris and loved the option of our private patio or the Rum Bar porch for people watching on Duval. Close enough to the action but not smack dab in the middle of crazy. They found us a parking space and we never moved the car, we had the smallest room but we spent almost no time in it so we requested it again the next time we went. Brought the in-laws and they couldn't have been more pleased. They want to make it a yearly tradition! Stay here as long as you don't book before us!

Barbara, Bobbie, Bob and Chris are all super friendly and helpful with any advice needed. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Loved the option of hiding out on our private patio or on the porch of the Rum Bar watching the crowds walk by taking pictures of the beautiful Inn. I'm actually not supposed to be writing this because my husband doesn't want our secret place discovered by anyone else. I'm not a very good listener. Stay here...unless I need the room.

You can't beat the price! We stayed here for 2 nights and really liked the room and the location, being that its right on Duval street. We actually got upgraded to a larger room which was very nice. Breakfast was really good and the owner was really helpful. My only complaint was that the AC froze up and was not working the whole time. But I thawed it out and it was working just fine after that. You can tell the owner truly takes pride in providing her customers a good experience. I would highly recommend this place! If we come back to Key West we will be staying here again!

My partner and I stayed here for 9 days and loved it. We usually stay at a gay guesthouse but we couldn't afford it this year. This place was great. We had room 2 which had its own private patio. The room was nice, Barbara and all the staff were great. The only bad thing is that there is no pool to lay out at, but you can go to other places and do that. Highly recommend it. It is reasonably price, has a nice breakfast and is perfectly situated on Duval.

Been to the Rum Bar multiple times during the last couple years, and always a fine spirits tasting experience. The bar is small and intimate (occupant load of 38, plus front porch) and mostly patrons who appreciate the fine rums...along with other drinks. My first experience staying at the Speakeasy Inn was just a nice. Reasonably priced rooms with a lot of privacy as there are only 5 rooms. Comfortable bed, large flat screen TV, kitchenette (minus cooking surface/oven). If your looking for a bed & breakfast experience, a great place. Barbara and staff were very friendly and accomodating. Location is close to all that is Key West, with a little less crowd. Gratis continental breakfast from 8-10am in the quaint bar area. Barbara's banana bread is fantastic! Without a doubt will be back for the bar and the Inn, and will bring friends along for the ride.

After a terrible day of travel with Spirit Airlines this oasis saved our day. Barb was so nice on the phone that it was refreshing. They got us our room and a drink with a dollar discount. After we got in the room it was a cozy little nook far enough away from the Main Street that we heard no noise. But the best part is the cute little bar attached and the fact that you are right on Duvel street where everything is happening. Next time I'm in key west this will be my place! For these two CA kids it saved our trip.
