Caroline's Other Side is a great little cocktail bar. I came here with my family for some mid-day downtime two days in a row. They, of course, do not cater to 10-year olds, but they made a wonderful hand-crafted lemonade with strawberries, with all the...More

Great drinks from an expert bartender in a very cool old mansion. We went to Caroline’s Other Side after reading the New York Time’s review and enjoyed the Not Coming Home drink at the suggestion of the NYT – and we were NOT disappointed. It’s...More

Awesome cocktail spot away from the madness that is Duval St. Bartenders that know how to not only make great cocktails, but make them quickly! No attitude here, except for good ones. Love the Bodhi--had several over just as many visits. Will certainly be back,...More

Interesting craft cocktail bar. It's in the bottom floor of an old historic house. The drinks were very good but super expensive. We got Manhattans and it felt like we were in Manhattan. Know that your gonna wait a good 10 minutes for your drink...More

Delicious hand-crafted cocktails made to order. It's a joy to watch the bartenders do their work. Most drinks run between $10-$15 but it's worth it. Lovely happy hour spot. Gets crowded during the nighttime especially after dinner to midnight hours.

We went twice during our 3 day visit....it's that good! You pay for the fact they use good ingredients and each cocktail is made to order. Try the Hemingway Daiquiri....it's not the frozen crap that has ruined the name! The other fun thing to do...More

Staff was great. The mahi sandwich was good. My boyfriend had the jambalaya. Lots of andouille sauasage and shrimp.

I've lived all around the country from NYC, FL, Cali to Seattle. I've drank whiskey and dabbled in a few bars, but never in my time have I experienced a bar with such character. Unbelievable staff with Cassie & Tim, comfortable seating at the bar...More

Craft cocktails in a classic setting just steps from Duval Street in Old Town, Key West. A locals' favorite. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time and found your own hide away. Located in the historic Porter House on the corner of Caroline and Duval in Key West, Florida.
