Concierge.com's insider take:

Just look for drag queens with bouffant hair, à la Sarah Palin, taking a cigarette break, and you've arrived at Aqua Nightclub, a hotbed of frivolous fun where female impersonator acts play out nightly. It's a typical Key West scene, with the crowd ranging from 30 to 70 years old, give or take a decade, and every shade of the sexual preference rainbow represented. The open ductwork ceilings sparkle with the prisms thrown about by the disco ball, and curtained booth areas line the back wall ($25 gets you Champagne service and a private nook here). There are two bars that host dueling bartender karaoke, and after the shows the dance floor gets going with everything from '80s throwbacks to classic dance tunes. There's no cover charge during the day, but the nightly shows cost $15 per person—unless you happen to be from Columbus, Ohio (as are the owners), in which case you'll get free entry.—Terry Ward

Open daily 2:30 pm to 2 am, nightly shows at 9 pm.
