Top 5 Key West Bars With Live Music

The Green Parrot

The Green Parrot is everyone’s favorite funky dive bar in the heart of Old Town. Enjoy free popcorn and arguably the best music on the island. Come for 5:30 p.m. soundcheck and stay to dance the night away. This spot opened its doors in 1890 and has been a staple in the community ever since. They have live music almost every night of the week, but check their events calendar to see what's going on while you're visiting. 

Address: 601 Whitehead St.

Willie T’s

Head up Duval Street till you see an outdoor bar covered with dollar bills-- that's the world-famous Willie T's! Grab a mojito and sing along to “Sweet Caroline” with the folks walking by. Willie T's is known for its tropical drinks and non-stop live music. There's always a party going on here, plus they've got great food and regular drink specials. Check out Willie T's calendar to see who is playing each day.

Hog’s Breath Saloon

Hog's Breath Saloon offers great food, drinks, and music in a tropical, open-air setting. The covered outdoor patio bar is what Key West is all about! Music at Hog's Breath starts at 4:30 p.m. and goes until the bar closes each night. Wave to your friends at home through the Hog Cams while you dance the night away.

Schooner Wharf

Schooner Wharf is nestled along the harbor walk on the Historic Seaport, and is considered "a last little piece of Old Key West." This local's favorite spot is known for its specialty cocktails in a quintessential island setting. You'll find live music all day, every day of the week at Schooner's Wharf. Dogs are even welcome at this bar (and in these Key West rentals).

Smokin’ Tuna

Turn off busy Duval Street onto Charles Street to find Smokin' Tuna, an open-air hangout. With two bars and a courtyard stage, this spot is great for local seafood and casual drinks.
