I would not use the word dive, but I would suggest Looe Key Tiki Bar, Springers, Mangrove Mamas, Boondocks just a few of my favorites.

Thanks, I meant dive bar is a positive manner, out of the tourist trap path with local atmosphere. In Key West I would call the Green Parrot and Captain Tony’s dive bars and Hogs Breath and Sloppy Joe’s tourist traps.

I consider Parrot and Tony's as tourist. The others, still get tourists, but not on the same radar as the two mentioned here.

You asked for dive bars OUTSIDE of Key West. You were given bars outside of Key West that are mostly locals bars..

On our last trip to the keys we stopped at Lorelei's and loved the live music. We are going back down to the key's in January and have already made our list of stops.

Alabama jacks

holiday isle tiki bar

hogfish

no name pub

We might have to go to the purple porpoise. I have never heard of it.

tonylexky - My favorites are located outside of Key West.

Springers - Big Pine Key

Looe Key Tiki Bar - Ramrod Key

Boondocks – Ramrod Key

Mangrove Mamas - Summerland Key

Would also like to say that the Southernmost KOA was a pretty neat place also located in the Lower Keys
