Key West Nightlife
The fun doesn’t end at sunset in Key West, its just beginning. Duval Street is the place to go for dining and nighttime entertainment. You will find a mile and a half stretch of shops, Key West restaurants, bars, galleries, and people watching. Start at either end of the street and work your way down, stopping at your favorite places. Locals call it the “Duval Crawl”. Shops and galleries are generally open until 10 pm. Many of the bars are open until 4 am. When staying at a Historic Key West Inn there is no concern about a designated driver at the end of your evening. All of our Historic Key West Florida Inns are within walking distance of Duval Street and most Old Town nightspots.
