Visitors are always looking for a hidden place where locals go, away from the crowds at places like Sloppy Joes. Lush Bar fits the bill. This is a bar hidden away inside a store on Upper Duval (The Green Pineapple). It is small, with a friendly owner who has great wines, chocolates, organic teas and coffee. Everything is organic and delicious.
We really enjoyed a wine and chocolate tasting we attended pairing wines with wonderful chocolates. Lush also sells honey made in the Florida keys. The honeys are different flavored depending on the flower fields the bees are near. They also sell Florida Keys Sea Salt, locally made.
Skip the cheap tee shirts and shot glasses, and buy some of is honey for a real Key West souvenir. Sip some wine, eat some chocolate, and hang with the locals. Great spot!
