Virgilio's at La Trattoria, Key West

Hidden behind La Trattoria – one of Key West's best Italian restaurants – is a charming upscale cocktail bar called Virgilio's Bar. Named after its founder, Virgilio "V" Sanchez, who opened the establishment in 2007, this place specializes in sophisticated, handmade drinks like Mochatini, Cuervo Cosmo, Razzle Dazzle, Italian Lemon Drop, and a dozen or more types of martinis (the bartenders actually make them with a "sidecar" so they're a martini and a half). The selection of craft cocktails on offer is extensive, and all the drinks are made with the freshest possible ingredients and a focus on classic recipes.

In addition to drinks, they also serve the full menu from La Trattoria, so you can enjoy fantastic food as well. The small dance floor is often grooving to the talented artists playing late into the night.

The atmosphere at Virgilio's Bar is laid-back and casual, with indoor and outdoor seating available. The decor features an eclectic mix of vintage and modern elements, including exposed brick walls, tin ceilings, and a mural by local artist Rick Worth.

The bar is popular with both locals and tourists and has been featured in numerous publications, including the New York Times and Travel + Leisure.

Try to plan your visit on a Martini Monday, when they offer all their delicious martinis for a special price.
