Just the best celebration in the Florida Keys. We saw a bunch of really great acts: tight rope walkers, cat jumping, escape artists, and lots of music. You do not need to go here every night if you are taking a Sunset Cruise or have waterfront dining plans, otherwise this is the best spot for fun.
We like to stop here and lock our bicycles up and begin to explore the Old Town area of the island. You can stroll a really scenic dock walk, just by heading northeast staying right behind all of the shops and hotels on the waterfront. Eventually, you will end up at the historic seaport.
Check out the music schedule, as Mallory Square plays host to all sorts of singers and bands. They typically run from 6pm to 10pm. We saw the Sea n' B Band plus the Barefoot Man at the same show. Music by the water is perfect.
Sure winner for fun. The Sunset Celebration is an awesome time, plus the Mallory Square live music events. Other things that we would recommend are lower key activities, but fantastic: Key West Cemetery (off Passover Lane), Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden, Southernmost Point, South Street Pier, Butterfly & Nature Conservancy, Shipwreck Treasures Museum, and the Mallory Square Aquarium.
These sunset parties make for some stunning scenes for local artists to put on canvas. Put one up on your living room wall and you have a lifetime conversation piece. The sunsets are very intoxicating...It is the best way to relax before dinner and cocktails! Tonight, it is off to Bagatelle on Duval. Best Regards.
