Fine wines, cheese plates and small bites…what more could we ask for? The original Vinos is on Duval Street in Key West; we’ve got the other two. The first 954 location is on Las Olas; more recently it’s been joined by the one on the Galt. The cozy spot features unique décor, for example the flying Superman action figure propped among umbrellas with images of the sky on them. Vinos also offers fun events like wine tastings and music nights.
