The History of Two Friends

Our roots extend far beyond 1967. Two Friends is one of the oldest bars on the island and a local favorite thanks to our famous specialty drinks and our Key West breakfast.

Two Friends a popular business name Key West was built by many “rough and tumble” industries like the military, shrimpers, wreckers and others looking to find their fortune on this island.
