Arguably the most famous of our bars is Sloppy Joe’s; without a stop at this drinking hole your Key West vacation just wouldn’t be complete.  Hemingway’s old haunt is not just a bar.  Sloppy’s has live entertainment, a restaurant, and a store so you can pick up a souvenir.  Capt Tony’s Saloon is another famous watering hole located in the original Sloppy Joe’s location.  This is actually where Papa Hemingway frequented during his time on the island. Tony’s is an eclectic place, with a tree growing up through the property’s roof and the bar littered with “sexy mementos” people have left behind throughout the years.

The Green Parrot Bar, located on Whitehead Street,  is the definitive Key West saloon, ranking as one of the top bars in the country according to Playboy Magazine. With their legendary Juke Box and strong music overtone, the Parrot plays a huge part in the Key West music festival and visiting band and musicians flock to this “first and last bar” on US 1.

The Schooner Wharf Bar on William Street is an open-air bar on the seaport with a diverse customer base, both human and animal. The Schooner is a local’s favorite, known as the last little piece of old Key West.  

Louie’s Afterdeck serves stellar cocktails with an even better view of the Gulf.  Located outside at the famed fine dining restaurant, Louie’s Backyard, next to Jimmy Buffet’s original Key West home before he made it big.
