BottleCap’s Southernmost Game Room in the USA

Games room with pool table and beer bottle wall decorations

You know the theme song from the tv sitcom CHEERS “Where Everybody Knows Your Name,” BottleCap Lounge is that place; it’s your ‘Cheers’ bar in Key West. They’ve been serving locals and visitors since 1934 and recently added Southernmost Game Room in the USA!

About BottleCap’s Southernmost Game Room

What’s happening in the Game Room? Four pool tables, foosball, pinball, darts, tabletop games, TVs, virtual jukebox and video jukebox, two bars, the best drinks and bar bites in town.

BottleCap’s Game Room in the USA is another night out in Key West and the place to mix and mingle with the locals while social distancing.

If the Gameroom isn’t your thing, you can always hang out in the main bar. BottleCap is also available for private parties.

Eat + Drink at the Corner Kitchen
The best bar food on the island is found right here at the Corner Kitchen at BottleCap, and we highly recommend you try the Bottle Cap Beer Burger; it’s the signature burger and the talk of the town.

Bottlecap’s Beer Burger
A hand-packed sirloin patty is grilled with a heady lager, topped with crisp bacon, beer-braised caramelized onions, beer-spiked sriracha cheddar sauce, dill pickles, and piled into a brioche bun served with condiments and fries. As you can see, it’s not your average burger and one worth mentioning.

The Corner Kitchen at BottleCap is where you get homestyle food served until the wee hours or closing. View the menu here.

BottleCap is open from 5 PM until 4 AM daily. The Southernmost Game Room is open Thursday thru Sunday 7 pm – 3 am – these are the off-season hours.

A truly unique shopping experience recently opened in paradise!  Welcome to Kirby’s Closet, an upscale resale boutique located on Whitehead Street in Old Town.

You’ll need to add Kirby’s Closet to your places to go, things to do, and must-see and do list while on vacation.  What you’ll find is a thoughtfully curated display of pre-loved women’s clothing, jewelry, accessories, and home decor items.

Kudos to Kirby Myers for opening the boutique during COVID, and oh how happy we are that she did.  Visitors are welcomed with a smile and a treasured showroom of style as she’s giving pre-loved clothes a second chance.

The decor is colorful, vibrant, bold, and beautiful, just like Kirby.  It’s a happy place, and the one comment we see time and time again is that “I’ve never had so much fun shopping.”

Kirby knows how to style, so if you’re visiting and need something extra special or just in the mood for something new, she’ll help you out.  “Best shopping experience ever! Surprise my brother-in-law is getting Married NEXT WEEK! Kirby went above and beyond picking out about 8 dresses for me to try on and I ended up with a gorgeous beaded dress, a necklace and earrings. She took my number and said she’ll find me some shoes! 100% will be back.” ~ Sailing TipSea, Google Review
