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."

This bar had exactly the type of Key West vibe we were looking for. Great live music in a semi-divey atmosphere with plenty of local flair. Drinks were very reasonably priced, but beware the credit card minimum. Free popcorn was incredibly satisfying. Had at least three plates of the popcorn.

If you want the Key West vibe this is the place. Great music, check their schedule. Open air on a corner is the perfect place to hang. Free popcorn. Don't miss. They also have a shop for Green Parrot gear. Stay for the atmosphere.

Had fun on St Paddy's Day with friends. Basic bar drinks, lots of people. Great gift shop. This bar is open air with bar stools. Lots of people standing outside. Lots of tourists and lots of locals. Easy to meet other travelers.

What can you say about the Parrot, excellent music, great dive atmosphere, great hang out to see your freinds in town and hear good tunes, reasonable drinks and even better during happy hour. A trip to Key West should include at least one visit to the Parrot just to say you've been there, a Key West favorite. You might hear... More

We have been to the Green Parrot a number of times. It always has great bands playing when we are there. The drinks are fairly priced, and the staff friendly. All in all, a great dive bar.

Other than claiming to be the oldest bar in town there is nothing special about this place. Average service-we went in the later afternoon when it was not busy and waited several minutes standing at the bar to get a beer. Plenty of other places.

The Green Parrot was reasonably priced with a good atmosphere, good service and good mix of customers! They provide free popcorn, there is a pool table and old school American bar music :-)

Every time I am in Key West, I spend at least a couple of nights at the Green Parrot. They get terrific bands, often national-touring acts (this time I saw the Honey Island Swamp Band from New Orleans, who were terrific). The staff is great, the room is fun, the patrons are always nice--it is one of my very favorite... More

We got there too early for the live music but the Green Parrot has an authenticity that other Key West watering holes, like the Hard Rock, don't. The obvious adoration for blues legends draws the traveler in the door and the friendly atmosphere keeps you there longer than you'd expect to stay. This is a place locals go, and we... More
