My brother and I visited The Bull and Whistle Bar on July 1. There are 3 levels. On the roof several people usually decide to go nude or wear underwear. The only complaint would be the music being too loud. All in all a fun place to visit.

Great place to hang out and have a few drinks. Is a great place to meet friends, great music, and the staff is friendly and making sure you are well taken care of.

We were there on a Wednesday and all the other bars in the area were busy. There was not one soul in this bar. They had a woman playing guitar and singing to no one. We decided to have a drink anyway and do a little people watching. The drinks were fine, nothing special, and the prices were similar to... More

Frequented The Bull from mid 70's through mid 90's. All that Jimmy Buffet stuff really happened because I watched it all happen from the corner bar stool in The Bull. Say hey to Bobby for me.

Bartender Martha is ridiculously rude. We asked her to take a photo of us while having a round of drinks and she said I'm not a photographer I'm a bartender. I thought it was a hospitality career choice.guess not

They always have drink specials and a nice outside area to sit and watch the people on Duval. You can go upstairs for some extra fun!

We were visiting Key West for one night only and visited a few bars on our way round. We were drawn to The Bull and Whistle as The Spectrelles were performing. I really love the 50's and 60's songs they were singing and they were great fun. Bar staff were friendly.

Popped in here at 7 PM on May 21st. The resident music act; The Spectrelles' were onstage in purple sequined mini-skirts and towering wigs doing their Doo-Wop thang. We sat at the bar. Various locales in varying degrees of compromise were hanging off of the bar rails like drowzy seahorses. Inebriated women of a certain age, Elaine-danced the evening away... More

Lively bar with live music. The service was super friendly but not top notch. Drinks served in plastic cups. A live band that did a mix of current pop and favorite throwbacks to the 80s & 90s. The best part was sitting at a table in the window so you could also observe & converse with the crowd passing by.
