About
"The search for the definitive Key West saloon ends at the Green Parrot Bar," said Playboy magazine, naming The Parrot one of the Top Twenty Bars in America. Funky, open air, and laid back, one of the oldest watering holes in town, The Green Parrot Bar is a favorite hangout from yesterday that has survived virtually unchanged. Their juke box and live entertainment are arguably the best on the island. In the words of local author Joy Williams, "The Parrot has an engagingly louche clientele, a pool table and a dart board, odd art, and an attitude best described by the sign over the booze shelves: 'No Sniveling'."

We went to Key West to hear some live music. We have been many times and found some real gems. On this vacation we went to all the usual places to find music and we're so disappointed in the quality of musicians...except at the Green Parrot. The Colin Davis and Night People band from New Orleans were AMAZING! We spent most of our time at the Green Parrot. The drinks we're good, bartenders were friendly and even the local guests were so nice. We will be back again and again.

Always a fun time. Usually go in the Spring, this time went in October. While we found the bar to be full of more "mature" patrons, we thought it was more relaxed and we actually preferred it! All sorts of different and unique bands while we were there, including one day, a ukulele event?? Super cool, much fun was had. See pic.

The Green Parrot Bar is a wonderful place where all kinds of personalities come together to listen to great music and enjoy a lively atmosphere. It's a short walk from Duvall, they have free popcorn, and an all around cool vibe. We first went there on their Ukelele night. Pretty cool to listen to a variety of musicians playing all kinds of song with their ukelele. If you like craft beer, they had a good selection, too. Will visit every time we're back in KW. Enjoy!

After returning rental pedal bikes yesterday June 12th across the street we planned on enjoying a Bloody Mary listening to music from the Green Parrot outside rail. I followed my boyfriend with my 6lb. service dog (not emotional support) to the counter to help him carry the drinks which included a cup of water I planned to give to my dog. The bartender snapped at me stating "no animals allowed inside!" I told her we weren't sitting inside and the dog was "service" - I stood at the doorway waiting to help my boyfriend. After 15 minutes of being snubbed while she served every other patron including those that came in after us we walked on and spent our money elsewhere.

We visit Key West 6-10 times per year as we are only a ferry ride away in Fort Myers. Needless to say we will never go back and will tell all others we encounter of our experience.

This is a great stop for a one and done drink or stick around if you prefer. I entered on two occasions and the crowd was a mixture of mid range ages 30+-50 predominantly 50+ older crowd on both nights. They had good live music however may have had the audio a bit loud on both nights made it difficult to talk to nearby patrons, date, or even bartender. ( yes if its too loud your too old BTW I'm 44 ). Cool place to relax and have one but for more adventurous types grab a cold one support the business and find your niche.

Chris, thanks for your positive response and yes, with us still restricting capacity sometimes without the bodies to absorb the sound the music can be a bit loud. Sorry for that but thanks for encouraging folks to visit and support us, that means a lot, so thanks again. john

Beer. Pool. Darts. Great live music!
Fun location. We enjoyed wasting away the after noon. When we went by later in the evening, the band was pumping and the crowd was spilling out onto the sidewalk.

It is what you would expect. Open air dive bar with drinks served in plastic cups. Weird eclectic juke box and even weirder and more eclectic patrons, many of whom will be noticeably drunk. Great place to get out of the sun, have a cold drink and enjoy some time with friends. The bartenders seem a bit tired and annoyed, but I guess that is why they have all the "No Sniveling" signs everyone. There is a postage sized stage against one wall but they pack in some great acts. Wonderful place to kick of your trip to Key West and have your troubles melt away. The well drinks are stiff, so eat something first!

We heard some great music at the Green Parrot! It was the best we heard while we were in Key West! My husband and I had so much fun dancing. We started sitting outside on the barstools on the sidewalk but the music was too good to not get up and dance. The drinks were good and not expensive. My husband was taken by all the guitars on the wall. It is a very old bar which was established in 1890. Lots of history in this place. A must see in Key West!

Stopped at the parrot for beers 3 times on our trip. It is the quintessential dive bar...and proud of it. There is a mix of locals and tourists and there is often live music at night. Take time to soak in the decorations.

Definitely a true local bar in Key West and one that is near the 0 Mile marker and is quite large on the inside. However once inside, its dark, dimly lit and there is the main bar open but the back bar is closed which I couldnt figure out why. Also very limited seating inside this place and one of the only bars with no daytime live music and no outdoor seating to found, except maybe a few chairs. Also not a lot of seating inside unless you are sitting at the main bar. We quickly went in and exited this place.
