Overview

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."

They have great live music, especially if you like blues. Great bar, just a fun place to hang out. Very relaxed. Mix of locals and tourists. We visit key west every summer, and the green parrot is always a must-do.

This is the local locals bar. Anything and everything can be seen. Most of the time the crowd is lively and friendly. Down to earth and a little crazy. The gift shop has an amazing choice of great sayings on shirts. Close to Duval and...More

This a great local bar with great music. The oddest, most peculiar thing is the little "smirk" guy that you see all over the place. It kind of creeps you out but intrigues you at the same time :-).

I wasn't a big fan of The Green Parrot. The positive was the bartender was generous with his pours, the negative was all the smoking. There was a really good band playing. Had to go there because it is iconic but don't think I will...More

This place is a bit of a cliche but fun. Music was good (with some original song as well as feel-good oldies) when we were there. I honestly didn't think that I would like this place but was happily suprised. Mixage of ages - but...More

The green parrot is one of the few bars that features full bands, not just the 1 or 2 person groups with digital support. If u r into music, check out the green parrots line up. No food, just booze, they say u can bring...More
