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."

“Not the friendliest place, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Apparently the women bartenders don't feel the need to appreciate the tourist dollars here, but it is what it is, a local bar. As is everthing in Key West, it is unique and has one of the best juke boxes I've seen in a long time. I hear the bands they book are the best in town as well. I guess cold beer and good music can make up for a not so friendly staff.

“Super Bowl Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Just have to give a shout out to the Green Parrot for making Super Bowl so much fun!! A good number of TVs with the sound loud enough to hear the game, was a good start. The best however was beer for $1.50 and free food at halftime. Good food, catered from next store! A fun place, met some great folks while enjoying the game.

“N35”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

All I needed to be the full board winner. Next time you're in town on a Monday night- stop by for BINGO beginning at 7pm. Have a few beers, play a few rounds (each board is $1).
