Rick's Entertainment Complex, Key West

Rick's Entertainment Complex, Key West

The Rick's Entertainment Complex is the largest drinking establishment in Key West and, indeed, a one-stop party spot for all of the Florida Keys, having eight different venues under one roof.

If you enjoy live music while sipping a cold beverage during the day, or wish to live out your rock star dream at night, you can have all that at Rick's Downstairs, also known as the Karaoke Bar.

At Durty Harry's, you can catch live performances by some of the island's most talented musicians seven nights a week, or watch sports on one of the 15 TV sets throughout the bar (or a larger 10-foot screen, for that matter), whilst enjoying tasty cocktails, ice beer, and good tunes. Alternatively, you can pull up a stool at the hand-carved wooden Tree Bar, shaded by a giant Monkey Pistol tree on the street level, and enjoy the refreshing blends of premium liquors with fresh juices squeezed by hand along with people-watch!

Rick's Upstairs – a place to see and be seen; it offers a fusion of high energy and a chill atmosphere. Here, you can sip on a cocktail sitting on the balcony overlooking the world-famous Duval Street down below or dance the night away on the Florida Keys' biggest dance floor. With its state-of-the-art laser and light show, and a DJ spinning today's hottest hits, this joint has something for everyone!

The premier gentlemen’s club – The Red Garter Saloon – is the place for those keen on the company of lovely ladies. For visitors' enjoyment here are Champagne Rooms and a VIP area. And if you want to get away from the crowd, The Crow's Nest (in Durty Harry's) is sufficiently tucked away from it all.

The island nights often get steamy. Whenever there's a need to cool it down a bit with a frozen treat, you can try out The Mardi Gras frozen daiquiri bar offering a wide selection of liquors and beers coupled with a great view of the Durty Harry's courtyard.

Finally, if it's time to sneak away to a quiet corner, or if you have a special event coming up, The Loft is a perfect place to consider, offering a touch of sophistication: cool marble floors, soft leather couches, and comfortable air conditioning to keep you coming back.
