With Key West always welcoming new attractions and expanding entertainment options, it’s no surprise that there are many new and exciting additions to town. Whether it’s sipping key lime martinis on the boardwalk or shopping local, there’s plenty to put on your seasonal must-do list. Here are five new places to check out in Key West.
The Wahlberg brothers (Mark, Donnie, and Paul) opened their newest location on the boardwalk of the Historic Seaport in August. The casual eatery features American classics like burgers, housemade chili, and shakes, but has expanded its menu to include popular Florida cuisine like fried and blackened grouper sandwiches, grilled and fried shrimp, and fish tacos. Added perk: Wahlburgers has its own ‘Deliverator’, an energy-efficient and zero-emission three-wheel electric vehicle that delivers to-go orders. 700 Front St. Suite 107
2. White Tarpon
Key West’s beloved seafood joint reopened in the old Boathouse space (formerly The Commodore’s Boathouse Bar and Grill) in August. Since January, locals and visitors alike have been missing White Tarpon’s signature crab beignets, yellowtail ceviche, crawfish nachos, and shrimp and crab beignets. Added perk: White Tarpon’s menu still includes their coveted signature martinis, including the World Famous Key Lime Martini. 700 Front St.
Local radio personality Kirby Myers opened a space to sell pre-loved and vintage women’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories in all shapes and sizes. Did we mention that every Saturday is ‘Sangria Saturday’ at Kirby’s Closet? Kirby’s new resale boutique opened in July. Added perk: Kirby’s Closet also features Fantasy Fest apparel. 218 Whitehead St.
While they may be under the same roof, the modern small-plate restaurant and vintage Champagne bar have a very different concept and menu. Opening earlier this year, Tiger Bar’s international street food-inspired menu was created by Chef Russ Ferstle, who you may know as the Executive Chef at Firefly. Tiger Bar’s signature dishes include Gunpowder Tofu and Beetroot Rice and Treacle Ribs. Before or after dinner, visit the Champagne Room next door for a vintage-inspired lounge, rotating esoteric boutique wine list, and artisanal hors d’oeuvres. Added perk: The Champagne Room features a 3 - 6 p.m. Happy Hour every day of the week. 500 Truman Ave.
5. Sacred Space
Stock Island’s Sacred Space serves as interactive art studios and a gallery space representing local female artists. The intimate gallery and boutique features an array of pieces, from abstract paintings to macrame plant hangers. Added perk: Sacred Space often features collection release parties and a Meet the Maker series where you can talk to the artists. 5700 4th St.
