I do believe the only times ever spent at Two Keys, were times when I was intoxicated before going there. In general, it seems like the kentucky version of a New Jersey club. If you don't go to Two Key then you are not cool! I do have to say, the Burger place in there is amazing, I highly recommend there 'Hangover Burger' with the sweet potato fries, top 3 burgers I've ever had...Oh wait this is a beer review. Really not a beer place at all, good place to pick up chicks or hanging out if you've already been drinking, beer selection is what you would expect to find at any college bar. But if you ever attended the University of Kentucky and failed to make it to Two Keys you are likely to be a recluse (lame) or not like girls (also lame).

I really don't know why this venue is up for rating on BA. Of course they serve beer, but so does 100 kareoke / country bars in town--they don't belong on BA. Two keys is a mainstay near the UK campus. It's set up like a Roadhouse / Frat bar. Can get wild on Thur - Sat night. But the beer is the run-of-the-mill stuff: Bud, Miller, Coors, Amstel, Fosters, Heinekin, and that's about it. They are never daring or impressive in their beer selection. Their food is fine bar food, but not great. Prices are fairly reasonable. Service is hot..er...nice. A nice patio with tv's everywhere. A good place to watch the game or watch the....scenery. It's basically the place to go if you were a high-school quarter back, you're now 30, and you still want to act like you did then.

A college bar location that is unimpressive on both the quality and selection of beer. Not an especially bad place, but there really is nothing here to attract a BA looking for a nice place to have a beer or a good variety of beers to try. The service is adequate, but why not go down the street a few doors to Pazzo Pizza where the beer is great, the service very good, and the parking equally difficult? Probably because you won't be able to get into Pazzo's on any busy night - but I'd try there first.

Two Keys is a college mainstay for the University of Kentucky. They don't have a large selection of beer - only the main ones (Bud, Killian's, Coors, Miller, etc). The service is pretty good and it's easy to get the attention of a bartender or waitress. The food is decent for a bar and they have entertainment most days of the week in the form of live music. Tuesday nights they have "Laugh Tracks Live" which is a comedy show. Usually they bring in people who frequent the Bob and Tom show. It gets very crowded on the weekend and Thursdays.
