Get a little something that you can't get at home. Trusty little watering hole with great people watching. It's a layer cake of weirdness. Three stories tall. Gird your self with courage and hard liquor as every flight of rickety steps brings you closer to freakish nirvana. Clothing optional on the top floor with an outstanding view of the whole... More

There was several of us waiting to buy drinks but it was obvious this was not important to them. We walked away and went to Ricks where the bartender... More

The Bull & Whistle is one of the larger bars on the lower end of Duval St in Old Town Key West. They have 12 beers on tap + many more in bottles - a good assortment - much better than most bars in Key West. And the service is friendly. They have live music nightly. And they also have... More

We read about this place before going to Ybor City to play tourist…unfortunately we arrived too early to enjoy all of its many facets, but we did get a drink. The Bull & Whistle is three bars in one building open to the street on 1st floor and with its iron balconies overlooking Duval Street on the 2nd floor and... More

The well drink was horrible. I had to dump it because it wasn't drinkable. The top deck is nice but I wouldn't go back.

Adrienne was our bartender at the main bar on the second floor two nights in a row. She was excellent, attentive, gave us great suggestions on places to go, helped us with some directional things..... she was phenomenal. We are flexible and like to try new drinks, she made us a drink called a Dark and Stormy.... which was great!... More
