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." « less

Nothing special. Definitely a local bar. Service seemed disinterested. Bands/music good, though. Would try again, just to see if different. Walking distance from Pegasus International Hotel -- right next to their parking lot, as a matter of fact.

The coolest bar on the whole island, the best live music too. I absolutely love this place, it has such a great vibe...it reminds me of what bars used to be like back in the 1980's.

Great place to grab a beer or drink and watch the world go by. The jukebox is one of the best and the ambiance is exactly what you would think of a Key West dive. The staff was great and the food was really good.

Other than being 1 of 2 fine water holes that I know of on the island that proudly serves Coors Banquet in a can, the Green Parrot is not only Key West's best juke joint but one of the very best in the country. I've personally made trips to the island for the sole purpose of the experience(s) of the... More

An interesting bar with a lot of history. We were there in the early afternoon and the bar tender didn't really care we were there. Not the best service and no air made it extra hot and sticky.

This place is the place to go if you want to experience where the locals go to drink. This is Key West at its best. The bar staff are friendly and the juke box is awesome. If you go have one of their frozen margaritas there the best in Key West.

Classic bar, great music and a real local atmosphere. We went because it was "Ukulele club night" and out 14 year old daughter had brought hers on holiday. It sounded fun, we were a little worried that the children wouldn't be welcomed but we couldn't have been more wrong. There was a gathering of at least 20 ukulele players all... More

We drank here on two occasions. The first time was after touring the Hemingway house. We were very hot and were told we had to go to this place for a drink by some friends. One of us got a Bloody Mary, which was recommended by the friends. It had nice spice and good flavor. The Moscow mule was in... More

Want to see a good band in KW? Go to the Green Parrot. Just off Duvall it was our favorite bar of the trip. A bit less touristy than most others. Super nice staff. You will love it.
