Whether you're looking for a full meal or a few hors d'oeuvres, an intimate dinner or a group outing, seafood or steak, the Two Friends Patio is the place for you. For nearly forty years now, this little restaurant has been serving up delicious food at reasonable prices. You can sit on the patio or indoors, and if you're in the mood for some lively entertainment, the lounge hosts a nightly karaoke session from 9p onwards, so you can belt it out and then eat up! Open daily from 8a.
Once a morgue and later an ice-house, this lively spot is one of the city's most popular bars and is said to have been the original Sloppy Joe's, entertaining author Ernest Hemingway. Jimmy Buffet sang here for a while in the beginning of his career and now live bands play nightly, who knows, perhaps you will hear the next Buffet. Stop by for a drink, or just to take a look at the "Hanging Tree," located inside the bar.
A historic fort where numerous soldiers died, creaky wooden houses with horror stories of their own and a creepy doll said to be an instrument of the paranormal, are just some of the hair-raising places and things that Ghosts and Gravestones takes you through. Tours take place only after the sun sets and vary in length from an hour and a half to several hours. Participants enjoy entry to the East Martello Fort, can explore 19th century wooden houses or meet Robot the Doll among other excursions. The tour guides are also knowledgeable, often imbuing the horror stories with a sense of humor. If you are in the mood for an horror-filled adventure, then visit Key West’s most haunted attractions with Graves and Gravestones.
At Hog's Breath, the motto is "better than no breath at all," and who can argue with that simple logic. You can even buy hats and shirts with that adroit slogan. While the restaurant and raw bar are a draw, they are not the main lure here—the sunset view is. Hog's Breath is right across the street from the Mallory Dock sunset festivities. Live entertainment goes on daily, as does the partying. Try Hog's Breath beer, raw oysters and a fish nugget sandwich with tartar sauce.
Anyone who enjoys tales about pirates and buried treasure will appreciate this small museum. Named for a local salvager who found sunken treasure aboard a wrecked Spanish galleon, the museum currently houses a collection of these treasures, including doubloons, solid gold bars and four sunken ships from as far back as 1560. The museum also shows a film on Mr. Fisher that describes his 1985 discovery.
