Green Parrot Bar

Wild groups gather at this open-air bar nightly, to party 'til they drop. If you are up for a pretty rambunctious scene, you will enjoy this antique saloon built in 1890 and generally agreed upon as the oldest bar in Key West. The co-owned smokehouse next door called "Meteor," serves pork, chicken, beef and seafood until 2am. Play pool, darts, or pinball while trying a "spine-tingling" cocktail. On weekends, there is live music, and the jukebox pounds out blues, zydeco and reggae all week. Don't miss this spot, listed as one of the "World's 50 Greatest Bars."

Hog's Breath Saloon

At Hog's Breath, the motto is "better than no breath at all," and who can argue with that simple logic. You can even buy hats and shirts with that adroit slogan. While the restaurant and raw bar are a draw, they are not the main lure here—the sunset view is. Hog's Breath is right across the street from the Mallory Dock sunset festivities. Live entertainment goes on daily, as does the partying. Try Hog's Breath beer, raw oysters and a fish nugget sandwich with tartar sauce.
