The Bull is one of the most fun bars in Key West with interactive entertainment and a crowd to go along with it. In Key West many of the bars are working hard to get you in the door. This is done with entertainers. Some entertainers are good and some are not so good. The Bull has great entertainers. 

On a recent visit to Key West, The Bull was drawing people in with coupons for discounted drinks. Okay, we are always open to cheap drinks. The entertainer that day was Yankee Jack, and this is a big man with huge talent. Yankee Jack is able to get the crowd involved and that is key to a great bar experience. But, Yankee Jack can also sing and has written some clever songs. You can buy his CDs also.

There is a lot of competition on Duval Street for your drinking dollars. The Bull is worth a visit. The wait staff is excellent and entertaining also. A visit during the evening had a lovely woman belting out songs and people were dancing to her tunes. Another fun experience.

The walls around The Bull are filled with handpained murals depicting the story of the people, places and events of Duval Street. They are lovely and interesting.

Above The Bull is The Whistle bar. This bar affords great views of Duval Street and provides an excellent place to do some people watching. 

And then, if you are looking for something entirely different, check out the roof top bar of The Bull. There you will find Garden of Eden. This is a clothing optional Florida beach bar. So if you are really brave, you can venture up to Garden of Eden and have an amazing time participating or watching the crowd.

Key West is a fun bar town. The Bull has an atmosphere ripe for fun, laughter and good times. Dance, laugh, drink and make new friends, but most of all, enjoy this Florida beach bar.
