Everybody needs to get out and loosen up every now and again, and what better way than to charter a flight to Key West, Florida for a pub tour? Touting over 40 tiki bars, saloons, wine rooms, beer gardens, and other adult beverage establishments, there are no shortage of choices here. If you’d prefer someone choose for you, you’re in luck! Here are the top suggested bar stops in Key West:
You can start your tour at the The Half Shell Raw Bar where you can order some of the island’s freshest seafood, as well as the famous Oyster Shooter, served with jalapeño vodka, oyster and splash of cocktail sauce.
Next on our list is the Island Dog’s Bar, a favorite haunt of the locals. This come-as-you-are establishment boasts live music, great food, and mixology inspired cocktails like their Key Lime Pie Martini.
The Green Parrot Bar is open 7 days a week from 10a – 4a, so you can enjoy this place just about any time. This local nightlife icon “has seen all manner of human exploits, from poetry slams to divorce celebrations, from memorial services to hurricane parties and pet birthday bashes, from tattoo contests to fundraising benefits.”
Another must-stop on your Key West pub crawl is Captain Tony’s Saloon. Originally built in 1851, this historic bar was a favorite watering hole to Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Shell Silverstein, and Jimmy Buffet!
A famous Key West traditional stop is the classic Sloppy Joe’s bar. This pub had its grand opening the day after prohibition ended and has been a staple ever since. The history is rich here as Joe’s was a favorite watering hole of Ernest Hemingway and his entourage.
If you’d prefer a guide for your personal tour of the local establishments, you can always hire one from Key West Walking Tours. They offer two versions of a pub crawl tour, the original 2.5-hour hotpot tour, and the Bone Island Haunted Pub Crawl & Ghost Tour.
You can also skip the land-based bars all together and book a trip with Cruisin’ Tiki’s Key West, where instead of barhopping, you can hop on a bar and take a ride on the water to one of their many local destination stops.
