“Great time, laid back with a great Bartender-Nick!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

I had been to Rum Bar once before in May of 2011. Somehow we found our way back on our last trip to Key West and I am so happy we did. We went to Rum Bar to watch a college football on TV. We found the game on, a great bartender and a nice group of people watching the game. We were quickly greeted by Nick the bartender and some nice locals that had stopped in after work. We tried every drink on the drink menu and even ordered a shot and a beer. Nick made our drinks very quickly and they all tasted great! Not too strong and not to weak. We can't wait to come back!

We stayed at the speakeasy for about a week to celebrate our one year anniversary and we absolutely adored the place. We got in kind of late the day we were to check in but the bartender Nick was very helpful in getting us situated, stepping out from behind the bar to point out our room, parking lot and loading area. Offiial check in with Bobbi the next day was just as warm and inviting during complimentery breakfast, with a fresh array of breads, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed oj and coffee.
The room itself was quaint in the best regard. It had a mini fridge which was readily stocked with bottled water everday, which is a necessity for those drunken nights on duval. It can be a pretty hefty walk to the touristy strip of duval but it's good for a little sobering up before you hit the hay. Noise level is stifled as well from the antics of the bull and whistle crowd further down.
We loved it, see you soon speakeasy! Afterwhile Key West!

Second stay this year at The Speakeasy Inn and I have no complaints. The staff is amazing. The rooms are amazing. The Rum Bar and Bob are amazing. It's on the quiet side of Duval but minutes away from the craziness. The staff knows all the in's and out's of the area and are always willing to help. The breakfast and fresh fruit are phenomenal. I would highly recommend staying here and/or visiting the Rum Bar.

We stayed at the speakeasy for 3 nights and were really sad to leave. This is a quaint little haven with a real key west feel. Our room was so comfortable and you couldn't hear any noise from the rum bar. Barbara was so helpful and makes the most amazing cakes for breakfast. You must try one of Bobs Pina Coladas they're completely moorish. Exceptional value and best place in town especially as a lot of the locals also drink here. You also get a dollar off every drink if you're staying at the inn!

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic

The rooms were great and had a nice Key West flare. The beds are very comfortable (we were told they were less than 2 years old). The bar downstairs is a really nice hangout and the drinks are by far the best on Duval. It's a nice little local-ish bar away from the idiots on the other end of Duval. It was nice to grab a couple drinks at the bar before heading upstairs to our room each night. The bartenders and the owner of Speakeasy were very nice and friendly. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.

We recently went to Key West, looking for a quaint place on Duval to stay. We found the Speakeasy and were more than satisfied with the accomodations. There were 4 couples in our group, and the staff was exceptional. They treated us like guests in their home, with fresh continental breakfast every morning, super clean rooms, and exceptional service. If you're looking for the perfect place to stay in Key West, look no further. I know we have started a tradition at this location every year.

The decor in these spacious and airy suites is tropical and features hand-crafted queen beds and tables made from original 1876 pine recovered from our recent renovation. It has been restored to perfection, just for your pleasure. Each one, two, or three bedroom unit has a feeling of true Key West ambiance.

The Speakeasy Inn was the home of Raul Vaquez, who was a cigar selector at the Gato cigar factory. Raul's true passion was rum-running between Key West and Cuba. It's in that spirit that our lobby features the Rum Bar open daily from 11am to 11pm (or later). ... more   less
