Got to Key West a bit before our hotel check and after a long hot drive down all we wanted was a beer and this was right next to our hotel. Had a great reception and stayed for a couple of hours.
Needless to say we ended up stopping in every night on our way back met some great people and always felt welcome never checked out the drag show so can't comment.

First night we were in Key West we went here and it was the highlight of our trip. The drag show was so much fun. All the people were so nice.

Paid $10 a piece to go upstairs for the show. The performances are lipsinked and it's so damn smoky up there, it was making me gag so we left before it was over. Beatrix and the Cher look-a-like were the best.

A highlight of Key West has to be Drag Queen Bingo, hosted by Mitch. What a fun time. We were five straight people and never felt out of place. The vibe is relaxed and fun, and the game is fast paced. The prizes are kooky and ranged from sexual aids to cups and streamers.

Definitely get there before the 5 pm start time and you can cozy up to the front of the seating and get involved in the show. This is a unique and fun way to spend an evening.

Best bartender ever! We love Rhett! Felt comfortable immediately and had a couple good drinks. Asked about the drag show and got an honest answer. Went back later on for karaoke and the drag show & dance party. The drag show was only $10! And that's good for both the 9 & 11 o'clock shows. We were only planning to stay for the first show but met some great people and enjoyed the first show much that we decided to stay for the late show which was completely different from the first. Ended up being a big singing and dance party by the end. Bartenders were good and very attentive. Can't wait to do it again when we come back.Our favorite bar, we will definitely go back when we return to Key West.
