One standing one waiting on people. After another long period the stander came out... More

Crazy place. First two floors bars, top floor is clothing optional. Not for the faint of heart. Remember Key West us a very liberal and Gay orientated city.

Open windows onto Duval to people watch and live music are really the only real positives. There are many of these type of bars in Key West.

It's a good bar, when you can get the bartender's attention. Just seemed last year there were more people in there and there was a lot more action going on. When we went in there were about six people at the bar and the bartender seemed more interested in one more than the other five willing to pay for drinks.... More

This was a really cool place located right on Duval street. Downstairs you can hear the music from inside the bar right on the street. The live music is always playing inside and its often songs that people know and sing along too! If you go up one flight that bar is more of a sports bar. Lots of TV's... More

After a long day just wanted a drink and to sit. We came upon the bull and whistle. There was entertainment in the back, we sat up front...no windows so it's a great place to relax and watch the action on duval street. I had a Diet Coke and my husband had two for one margaritas. It's a fun place... More

Get a seat next to Duval Street and watch the people go buy. Skunk the bartender works had and pours a good drink.

This is the best place to people watch. Sit here and enjoy the sights of the Key's. Explore the clothing optional bar upstairs at night. Never a dull moment.
