We here in Key West take issue with Einstein’s famous quote: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Yes, we do the same thing over and over again by gathering every night on the pier at Mallory Square to enjoy jugglers, island musicians, artists, food vendors and friends providing ample entertainment. And yes, we expect different results. Where we prove Einstein wrong is that we see a stunning, unique sunset each and every night. Join in on the party.
Mel Fisher Museum

Bar HOpping & Live music
The reputation of Key West’s night life precedes itself. A night on Duval Street can be synonymous with a night of bar hopping. The electric nightlife and live music draws passerby into each of the many legendary stops on the way. Duval and the surrounding streets host old standbys like Sloppy Joes, Green Parrot, and Hog’s Breath. And folks - you heard it here first - if you find yourself stopping in to the Garden of Eden on a evening of bar hopping, don’t be surprised to find out that it is clothing optional!
