Outside the Ballroom: Hard Rock Cafe, Key West, Florida

With it's gorgeous beaches and light hearted atmosphere, Key West screams out paradise. You can get married on the beach and then go right to the honeymoon. Anyone that's invited friends or family though need a venue to stop at in between.

Music probably comes in second right after paradise for things that Key West is known for. Just think Jimmy Buffet. This is why the Hard Rock Cafe Key West, stationed in the heart of downtown Key West and right on Duvall Street, screams out as the perfect venue.

It holds a wealth of history and not just music history. Legend has it that this old three-story Victorian style house is still haunted by the ghost of its original owner Robert Curry. You just might find him meandering the corridors of this unique cafe.

With two available floors and a capacity of 306, there is a good chance you can get a seat near the bar or on the patio.
