Studios is a "must".
May 2021 • Couples
In a world of franchises, chain stores & corporate blandness, Key West still has a little bit of its madness, & Studios is a perfect example. You want a mall experience? Don't go here. Unique, creative, a bit of kitsch. Wonderful!

A Centre for contemporary visual and performing arts in Key West
Jan 2021
The Studios of Key West is the contemporary cultural hub of Key West. Everything you want is here: Artist studios, exhibitions, theatre and book store. If you want to understand the cultural vitality unique to Key West, do not miss this inspiring arts centre. A not-so-hidden gem, housed in a historic art deco building, redone to international high standards.

Judy Blume will personalize a book for you
Sep 2020
OMG we went here by chance and discovered Judy Blume started this store. She is normally there personalizing her books but due to covid she has not come in. However you can still purchase the book have it personalized and then mailed to you. In addition to the book price you pay a small shipping fee. So worth it for any bookworms or Judy Blume fans

A Great Theater Experience
Feb 2020
The Studios of Key West has become a true artistic center worthy of high praise. It's something you might find in a large city, and yet it's in the middle of a quaint, small town. Great art, great classes, a fabulous bookstore, and top-quality theater productions. It should definitely be one your list to check in advance for events.

Anna in the Tropics
Feb 2020
We saw the play Anna in the Tropics at the Studios of Key West and were very impressed with the theatre, the staging, and most importantly, the players. This was an excellent play that related to the past history of Key West and was highly professional. The Studios of Key West was a great place to see a performance. My only complaint was that the elevator was no operational, and people with handicaps actually had to be assisted up the stairs to the theatre. An operational elevator is important!

Dynamic Center of Creativity
Feb 2020 • Business
Had the joy of being in residence at the Studios for a month. They have fantastic exhibitions, live music, and offer an array of brief to longer classes in the arts. Even better, Books n Books (a book lover's dream store) is part of their complex on the corner, Interested in the arts in Key West? Check this place out

Nicely curated book shop, fun gallery
Feb 2020
We stopped in to browse, and the book store had a fun and quirky selection of books nicely displayed, along with a small area filled with art supplies. We also visited two small galleries in the building, which had interesting art to see.

A special cultural gem in Key West
Dec 2019
Keep your eye on the calendar at the Studios. I have seen everything from singers to one-act plays to opera monologues. They transform the second floor space for a variety of performances, and the downstairs always has incredible art on display. I love the Studios!
