Key West nightlife

Key West knows how to party all day long and stays raucous long after the sun sets. The nightlife in Key West takes place on Duval Street, as with most everything here. You will find a lot of frattish beer-guzzling spots (especially during Spring Break) and old-school local joints with a jamming acoustic guitarist. The addition of Point Five lounge to the nightlife scene did finally up the style quotient a bit. The town's gay bars such as the Bourbon St. Pub are mostly located within two blocks of each other on Duval Street near Petronia.
