A centrally-located swimming pool and the eclectic Blue Mojito Pool Bar and Grill provide the perfect ambiance for enjoying a cocktail or delicious lunch. When it’s time for total relaxation, the 24-hour StayFit@Hyatt gym is one option. A visit to Jala Spa is the second option and it is a must. Treatments are ranging from deep tissue massage to a Cuban Coffee Body Glow. There is no doubt in my mind, you will rejuvenate your body and soul. For a true taste of the Keys, treat yourself to dinner at SHOR American Seafood Grill which features fresh seafood caught daily from the Gulf of Mexico.
Conveniently located the Hyatt is within walking distance of Key West’s top restaurants and attractions. My favorite restaurant is nine one five on Duval Street. Owner Stuart Kemp and his lovely wife make sure you will have one of the best dining experiences in Key West. The food is authentic, simple and fresh. Many of the ingredients are imported from Europe and the restaurant has a great wine list at reasonable prices.
After dinner walk toward Petronia Street, the core of the gay nightlife in Key West. The legendary 801 Bourbon Street and 801 Duval bars at the corner of Duval and Petronia have been a part of the Key West landscape for over 30 years. In the Cabaret you will find nightly shows headlined by such famed performers as Sushi, Kylie, RV Beaumont, and many more. Don’t miss Aqua Nightclub, one of Key West’s largest gay dance club. It is the home for many life entertainment that include nightly drag shows, karaoke, dueling bartenders, Go-Go dancers and much more. A visit to the Island House is a must where clothing is optional. This is the biggest gay resort in Key West and recently was named “The best gay men’s resort in the world” by OUT Traveler Magazine. For more information visit www.gaykeywestfl.com.
