“This is the oldest bar in Key West, and my favorite place to go,” says chef Norman Van Aken. “It’s an open-air place with live honky-tonk music that starts around 5:30 p.m., with no cover. The locals pour in to drink working-class stuff, nothing too fancy. It’s just got a great vibe. And heck yes, people dance!”
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
