GLEE Club - Key West

Do you watch GLEE? If you do you know it is okay to be whoever you want to be. You can be the boss of you. You can sing and dance and wear strange clothes. You can be a boy and like other boys. You can be fat and pretty and gifted all at the same time.

There is a lot of GLEE in Key West. It was here before the TV show first aired. It will be here after the show goes off the air. If you have dreamed of owning a small nightspot in Key West where you can let your inner-glee out, you may want to take a look at the new listing at 1114 Duval Street. The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"The Keys, a Piano Bar, now available. Currently operated as a piano bar with light food service. 5COP liquor license with lease hold to convey. All equipment included, business sold turn key. Continue operations as is or develop into full service restaurant. Lease to convey expires July, 2013 with 5 year option to renew. Extensive improvements made to property within past year. Please do not disturb business. Leasehold and liquor license only, no real estate to convey."
Some readers may remember the space when it was Alice's on Duval. If you have been there under any of its incarnations you will recall that the corner building has large windows that open onto Duval Street to let the music out and the fresh air in. Patrons can watch thousands parade by each evening. The world famous La Te Da is right across the street.

Seriously, if you have been thinking about fulfilling a lifelong dream of opening a small place in Key West that is either food or food and beverage oriented, you may want to consider taking a look at this business opportunity that includes ownership of a very valuable 5 COP Liquor License. This is a listing of Preferred Properties Coastal Realty, Inc. (That's where I work.)

Great location but I am trying to place it - did this use to be Alice's recently and a gallery quite some time ago? Like in the 1990's?

Dear Anon, click the TWITTER link and look at the photos of the property-all 12 of them.

Great location across from LaTeDa.

I mentioned that Alice's used to be located here.

Yes, but I seem to recall that the neighbors hate it for its noise. It was apparently resolved in favor of the business, but doesn't sound like goodwill conveys.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
