It’s no secret that South Florida is home to incredible bars, especially here in Miami. But if you’ve had your fill of the typical drinking scene and our many cocktail spots, there’s one place that certainly lives up to its name. But you’ll have to hit the road further south, as in Key West.
A 4-hour drive from Miami is the country’s smallest bar — appropriately named “Smallest Bar.” It opened in the year 2000 and lies on Duval Street, one of the busiest and main roads on the island city.
The quirky bar measures 72 square feet (famously described to be about the size of a jail cell) and only has two stools. But still, there’s plenty of room to fit your group of friends or family members!
It certainly is a great place to hang around while having some great beers and key lime shots, but don’t expect to find a vast drink selection. After all, it’s not like there’s much room to store everything your average cocktail bar could.
Many may not know that the bar has an inn that’s also on Duval Street. Formerly known as the Old Customs Hotel, the Smallest Bar Inn offers multiple rooms with many amenities. And far from its watering hole counterpart, the establishment is normal-sized.
If you’re looking to pay a visit to the smallest bar you’ll ever see, you can find the Smallest Bar at 124 Duval St, Key West, FL 33040. For more information, visit their website here.
