About Audubon House & Tropical Gardens

The Our gardens are spectacular and voted "The Best Outdoor Location" in Key West for private events. This historic property and lush tropical gardens are a perfect venue for your event, both small intimate parties and grand gala events. The gardens are paved with lovely antique brick, and the glow of the moon lighting and antique copper lanterns give the gardens a romantic, magical illumination.

There is space for up to 13 rounds of 10 people per table for a total of 130 guests for a sit down dinner and up to 250 for cocktail style events. 

The back deck of the historic home is a beautiful backdrop for a ceremony with up to 100 guests seated on the brick patio. To make the evening even more memorable, the 1840’s historic home will be open to your guests for private tours during the evening.

We provide this beautiful location and your caterer or event planner will provide all chairs, tables, etc.  We welcome DJ's and bands of all kinds to entertain your guests. The back porch of the home is a perfect dance floor for your evening.

After your ceremony, your photographer can take you across the street to the famous Mallory Square, for some lovely photos of the Gulf of Mexico at sunset while your guests continue with the party.  Our sunsets are famous and a lovely addition to your photo album.

We offer a variety of packages for your event, from four hour weekend evening rentals, to discounted weekday evening rates and a special discount for using a Local Event Planner, something for everyone!

I could not have been happier with the Audubon House as our venue! It is so beautiful you need MINIMAL décor to make this place look like a million bucks. Working with Laura was amazing - she was our day of coordinator as well. The groups are beautiful, the set-up is perfect, and it feels extremely intimate even though it is on a busier street.

You have to bring everything in, but it wasn't as difficult as I thought it was. Laura coordinated with all of the vendors on logistics, so that made things a lot easier on me. Being able to bring in our own booze and just pay our caterer for bartending services was a huge plus - we were able to offer really top shelf liquor and wine for a fraction of the price you pay for an open bar through a caterer.

We had about 70 guests at 7 tables of 10 and it was the perfect fit in the front garden area - the layout of the property was perfect for this size group, but I know they can do bigger.

Laura and John were both amazing! Laura helped plan the intimate (like just the 2 of us) wedding of our dreams. It was so easy to work with her when setting up the event. The venue pricing was extremely reasonable and they were happy to work with us on timing as the museum closed. John met us the day of and stayed late to help us. He suggested great spots for pictures and helped us choose the ceremony location. The wedding couldn't have been more perfect! We can't wait to go back to KW and the Audubon House.

Enjoy the lush tropical gardens of the Audubon House for your event. Very professional and friendly staff to guide you on a tour of this historic home and gardens. Centrally located in downtown Key west.

The Audubon is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph. The property and the staff are always a dream! I highly recommend contacting them today!

With their lush gardens and stunningly beautiful tropical setting, Audubon House is a great pick for a perfect old island wedding. Steeped in history, and in a location that can't be beat, they always offer great service. It's an intimate setting that's big enough for a dancefloor and large groups without getting lost in a corporate ballroom. As a DJ I love it because it puts me in front of the people who want to dance all night, and still offers a quieter area for those who need to rest their feet for a few...

A lovely and intimate spot for your Key West wedding. The staff is wonderful to work with.
