Owner description: A sunny place for shady people. The Green Parrot is the first and last bar on US1, and brings Key West the best live musical acts from across North America. Equal parts honky-tonk, dive bar and local hangout, The Green Parrot defies definition in musical range, decor and drink selections. Voted best live music venue in Florida by Florida Magazine. You'll find everyone at The Green Parrot - from Key West politicians playing bingo on Mondays to boat captains dancing into the night with their "catch of the day."

If you like a classic dive bar then this is your place! Always packed at night, with great live music and a very neat mix of tourists and eccentric locals, with everyone getting along and having a great time! It was a nightly stop for us during a recent trip as it was on the way home to our guest... More

Stopped by here twice. Once was for Bloody Mary's to go. Yum! Had to be one of the top 5 bloodies I've ever had. They put the pickled green beans in that were a great surprise and lots of horse radish. Stopped by again at night for a few drinks. We must have just missed the band but there were... More

We chatted to a local resident who pointed out the cctv camera could be accessed via the website which could be fun for those at home. We enjoyed a drink here and listened to some live music.

A dive bar with great atmosphere, good beers and cider. They also do a lovely line in souvenir shirts.

I believe that the Green Parrot is the quintessential Key West bar. As you walk up to it you hear either the best musical act performing in KW that night (most likely) or their awesome juke box that has one of the best play lists I have come across. What you see is a cool building with hurricane windows thrown... More

Whenever in Key West, my wife and I make it a point to stop by for the Sound Check at 5:30pm... It's a great way to see top rate entertainment, an eclectic and wide varied mix. Never a cover charge, and free pop-corn too!... A good pour, and a ice-cold brew will do for us, and they do it great!... More

John, Thanks for the kind words regarding the bands, the diversions we offer in the way of games, and the way you describe the something-for-everyone vibe of the place. We are happy you felt comfortable, that is our goal. Mostly though, I appreciate the kind words you offered to our staff when you said you "never wait for service" I... More

If you're heading to Key West, you simply have to visit the Green Parrot. It simply hasn't changed in 15 years and keeps it authentic Key West feel. Beer selection is much improved with the addition of craft beers- still served in a nice glass pint glass (not a plastic cup) Bands are top notch. One negative, seems like everyone... More
