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."

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

Great music brings a huge crowd....standing room only on the sidewalk and street, but beer and popcorn was easy to get, and the music was awesome

No better atmosphere, no better bands, no better service. Green Parrot is my absolute favorite bar in Key West. Completely authentic!

We were referred here by a server at our resort. One night we were walking to dinner and heard Honey Island Swamp Band and decided to stay and have a couple of drinks. I liked how open the bar was also the drinks were reasonably priced. We also liked getting the free popcorn.

Funnily enough we were in Key West for vacation at the same time as a local (NOLA) band. Honey Island Swamp Band killed it! We had so much fun dancing and meeting new friends at the Green Parrot. Definitely a great place to hang out for live music in Key West. I couldn't believe there wasn't a cover honestly.

Wow what a great night of dancing with new friends! We met a couple at dinner who were spending the winter in Key West. They invited us to join them afterwards for drinks and dancing 💃🏼 at their favorite place. We agreed to try it out and could not believe how great the band was! Chris, the keyboard player was...

Great bar and bands on weekend. If no bands are on stage they have a great jukebox! Ask for Patrick as your bartender!

we went in there to get a drink and something to eat. This seems like the place to go. It was so crowded the patrons were out on the sidewalk.

Great live music! Very crowded but fun and lively! Free popcorn at the bar to help coat your stomach while drinking. Would definitely recommend it.
