A photo of Duval Street, which is filled with bars and shops.

During your stay at NYAH, you are just blocks away from one of the best shopping, dining, and nightlife areas of Key West. Duval Street is one of the most popular areas of the island for a reason. Running from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean, this corridor is a must for any visitor. When planning your itinerary, be sure to leave a day just to explore Duval Street bars, shops, and attractions.

A Duval Street Checklist

After fueling up with coffee at NYAH, Not Your Average Hotel, make the quick 10-minute walk to Duval Street. Make your experience visiting the area even easier by hopping on and off the trolley. To get the full experience, start on one end and work your way towards the other. 

Pop into local shops or take a lunch break at one of the fantastic restaurants before continuing along your way. Your reward at the end of the journey: reminiscing while sipping on a cocktail at one of the famous Duval Street bars.


You’ll find a range of places to shop along Duval Street, including boutiques and galleries. Find work from local artists at SeaSister Island Gallery or Wyland Gallery of the Florida Keys. Buy a new outfit for a special night out at Indigo Boutique or The Green Pineapple. Stock up on souvenirs at Conch Tour Train Gift Shop or Key West Shells & Gifts. 


Whether you are craving comforting island cuisine or something fancier for date night, there’s no shortage of delicious restaurants. Enjoy amazing seafood at Pinchers or try regional cuisine at Caroline’s Cafe. Take in the views from the courtyard or wraparound porch at the Grand Café. The original Margaritaville can even be found here.


Duval Street really comes alive when the sunsets. Stop by Sloppy Joe’s Bar or Captain Tony’s Saloon to visit the two bars claimed to be the original bar frequently visited by the late Ernest Hemingway. Experience eight bars in one location at Rick’s Bar or listen to live entertainment at Willie T’s


There’s more to Duval Street than bars and shopping. You can also find various attractions like museums or photo opp spots, including Hellings House Museum, Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory, and Thomas Cobourg Clock.
