Where to Stay and Eat in Key West
Out in Key WestTravel & NightlifeEntertainmentOut.com EditorsWhether you’re looking for rest and relaxation or a place to bring the party home, Key West has the perfect lodging for you. No matter what you’re in the mood for, a memorable meal is always just around the corner here. This is where to stay and eat in Key West.
This Mediterranean dining experience is open for brunch every day from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner from 5:30 to 10 p.m.
John’s Tip: Key West is famous for key lime pie, so if you’re at AZUR for brunch definitely try their take on it: the key lime pie French toast. We’ve tried the delicious key lime treats all over the island and this French toast is definitely a favorite. Also, the bottomless mimosas are huge, and they keep them coming. AZUR is the perfect start to your Sunday Funday.
Kit’s Tip: Take a minute to chat with the staff. We had a great time talking with the owner and his fiancé; they were celebrating their wedding at the restaurant that very weekend! Key West has a small-town feel, and part of the fun is getting to know the locals.
This all-male, clothing-optional resort is located within walking distance of Duval Street.
Kit’s Tip: If you’re looking for a place to hang out at a pool, Equator Resort is the perfect spot. They actually have two pools, two hot tubs, and a bar on the property. And it’s clothing optional, if you’re feeling adventurous.
John’s Tip: Equator was the perfect home base for us. We loved our room and the pools were perfect. It’s within walking distance of everything, so it was easy to get around with Equator as our starting point.
Located upstairs from Nine One Five on Duval Street, this tapas restaurant and lounge is open nightly from 6:00-12:00am.
Kit’s Tip: Upstairs from 915 on Duval Street, Point5 is an incredible spot to stop for dinner in Key West. There were a lot of great vegetarian options. I had the Tortelloni De Casa with shaved black truffle, ricotta, and pecorino cream sauce.
John’s Tip: Not only was the food great (my favorite was the Lobster Ravioli), the cocktail menu was fantastic too. Highlights for our group included the 915 Cocktail which is St. George chili vodka, prickly pear liqueur, agave nectar, and lemon juice, and the Island Old Fashioned with Flor De Caña seven-year rum, chocolate bitters, simple syrup, and orange twist.
THE LITTLE PEARL
Nestled in the heart of Old Town and away from the bustling downtown area, sits an excellent spot for fresh, local catch and innovative cuisine with a tropical twist.
John’s Tip: When I’m in an ocean town like Key West, I get a craving for sea food. The menu looked so good that it was hard to decide what to order, but I ended up going with the Spiced Tuna Tartar “Brûlée” and the Seared U-10 Diver Scallops with roasted sweet corn puree, shiitake mushroom bacon, corn succotash, and chorizo oil.
Kit’s Tip: For dessert we tried the key lime pie and the Moscato & Ginger Poached Pear with vanilla gelato and salted caramel, and it was all amazing.
