About

The Speakeasy Inn is a landmark building located in the Boutique and Gallery District of Duval Street where you can shop, walk two blocks to the beach or enjoy a short stroll to world-famous Sunset Celebrations in Mallory Square! This landmark's recent renovation has preserved the original 19th century spirit of Old Town Key West. The decor in these spacious and airy suites is tropical and features hand-crafted queen beds and tables made from original 1876 pine recovered from our recent renovation. It has been restored to perfection, just for your pleasure. Each one, two or three bedroom unit has a feeling of true Key West ambiance. You'll find collectibles taken from treasure hunts on our tropical island paradise and Havana, Cuba. Guests who require special consideration will find "accessible" units available. Amenities include kitchenettes equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, toaster, private bathrooms, HD T.V., free WiFi and outdoor seating areas. We also offer a complimentary continental breakfast, free samples of our famous Painkiller cocktail and discounts on drinks at The Rum Bar! The Speakeasy Inn was the home of Raul Vaquez, who was a cigar selector at the Gato cigar factory. Raul's true passion was rum-running between Key West and Cuba. It's in that spirit that our lobby features the Rum Bar open daily from 11am to 12pm (or later).

Superior alternative to the big chains.

Not like a resort. No swimming pool, not kid oriented. 8 rooms behind and over the best rum bar on Duval Street. This is really a gem of a place. I hesitate to share this review because it will get popular and then I won't be able to score a res here, and I definitely want to stay here again. It's quaint and old-school, the kind of place Hemingway would have stayed, only nicer. Slight downside is it can be a little loud in the evenings, especially weekends, due to it being right on Duval Street which is an excellent entertainment district with old town Key West ambiance. No restaurant on site but there are literally about a dozen within two blocks up or down the street, and some are open late too. The rum bar downstairs is excellent. Great friendly staff. LGBTQ friendly.


Speakeasy inn is a fabulous place to stay!

Amazing stay!

This was the best experience we have ever had staying at an inn/ b&b in key west. The employees are friendly and helpful. They have the best bar (rum bar) in key west and Geno is the best bartender! The breakfast is fresh but there is no food offered after that. The Salty Angler delivers delicious food from just across the street. The rooms are clean. They stock the fridge with water for you every day. This will be our first choice of stay from this point forward.
