“relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed July 6, 2009

The Garden of Eden is on the third floor of the Bull and Whistle. I am not a big fan if sunbathing, so I did not really hang out here during the day, save for a couple of beers. I like the night time better since the weather is a bit cooler and the sun has set. Security is great. They card just about everyone coming in to make sure nobody is under 21. By "just about everyone", I mean people who even remotely look like they might be under 21. They take things like that seriously, which is nice. No camera or cell phone use allowed. Everybody, patrons and staff, are respectful and friendly. It is a comfortable place to go have a drink and relax.

“sleaze central”
Reviewed June 10, 2009

Brief (no pun intended) stop in Garden of Eden on out Key West vacation. Hated it. I'm not bothered at all by the nudity. The staff was rude, slow drinks in spite of the lack of customers. It's small and has nothing to offer at all. Except for creepers.

“A great place to see”
Reviewed June 8, 2009

Went to the bar on a Sunday afternoon. There were several people at the bar and three couples sunning in the chairs totally nude. There were two other couples at the bar, both women were topless and another couple can in the she took her top off as well. So all of the women were either topless or nude and about half of the men. After I had a few drinks I got up the nerve to try it. I love it, it just felt great and everyone was so cool. I even walked to the bar and got a few more drinks totally nude. What a great experence. I will for sure go back.

“loud”
Reviewed March 19, 2009

Interesting, but not as fun as you'd think. Plus very loud.

“Creepy guy paradise”
Reviewed March 19, 2009

I had high expectations all this is is a place for gawkers with cell phone cameras. There was actually one guy with a large camera around his neck sitting up there and the bar did nothing. If you want to hang out nude this could be a good place if the changed a few things. Stop people at the top step and have them drop or go back down. Also lock up all cell phones. It is a great idea just poorly planned.
