Key West - The Gardens Hotel at Key West

Jimmy Olsen at The Gardens Hotel
One of our favorite things to do is to listen to Jimmy Olsen at The Gardens Hotel in Key West. It's rated in the top 1% of all small hotels in USA. It has gardens open to the public for enjoyment and best of all, it features Jimmy Olsen on the grand piano every Thursday night starting at 5:00 through 7:00. He plays Broadway musicals mostly and always interacts with the crowd.

You have a fine selection of wines to sample
Another attraction is the wine bar. They have several dozen wines in automatic dispensers that can be purchased by the taste, slip, or 1/2 glass using a card with a chip embedded that you "load up" with money at the register. You have a wide selection of white and red wines to enjoy as you listen to Jimmy play on the grand piano.

Chose your sample size
After the Jimmy we enjoyed a walk through the tropical gardens started in the 1930's. It's just a wonderful way to spend the early evening in Key West. Best of all, it's never been crowded and Jimmy recognized us from last year.
