KWBT is probably the smallest bar on the island and it's always fun. Joe has been there forever and knows what you need to get your fish on. It's a fully stocked bait and tackle shop plus beer plus apparel and goodies next door. Say...More

Coldest beer in Key West. The locals meet here after work, and socialize. The charter Capt. come in in the morning to get bait, and tackle. This is a hidden gem, you never know who you'll see. The staff is great.

Went to pick up bait. Sat and had a few beers while talking to fishermen. Chris is an excellent fisherman with lots of advice. Sitting and talking while drinking doesn’t get any better.

We have been coming here for decades. The newest owners are super nice and very helpful. Chris runs the bait store side and his wife runs the clothing side to the right. It's a local hang out and the bar has a few stools inside...More
