Close to Mallory Square on Duval Street, Bagatelle Island Restaurant is a convenient stop for those near downtown Key West. It's housed in a humongous, historic building from the 1800's and was converted into a restaurant in 1979.
With a 7-days per week brunch special, featuring corned beef hash, lobster-stuffed omelets and thick bananas foster french toast, it’s an early morning favorite for folks all across Florida. Pair it with their “hangover happy hour” from 9-11:30 a.m. daily, and it’s a hard special to resist. Speaking of happy hour, or in their case HOURS.... They have 2 every day, with the second at a more traditional afternoon time, from 4 to 6pm. With fantastic tasting plates and 1/2 off most cocktails!
In addition, the restaurant offers a full lunch and dinner menu, with locally-sourced, fresh fish, steaks and other American-Caribbean style dishes. Bagatelle also features an open-air, outdoor space called the Moon Lounge, where guests can listen to live music or enjoy a private bar at a privately-catered event.
For larger get togethers, they have the Moon Lounge, that is an outdoor venue, with a private bar and a mouthwatering catering menu. This spot can accommodate those groups from 20 to more than a hundred!
For something a little different, you might want to also check out one of their sister properties, the First Flight Brewery. They too have options for large and small get togethers, including a rooftop garden setting. They can host corporate parties, weddings, receptions, family reunions / parties or just a way to get old friends together and enjoy a wondrous Key West meal and hospitality.
