The Schooner Wharf Bar, located in Key West’s historic port, caters to both boaters and tourists, featuring renowned figures such as Al Jardine from the Beach Boys and the late broadcaster and novelist Charles Kuralt. The “Schooner Lemonade,” rumrunners, and mango daiquiris are specialty beverages at this nautical tavern. If you are trying to find a fun place, this bar has three happy hours: one from 8 a.m. to noon, the next from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and a third from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. A sunset sail followed by Dark ‘n’ Stormy drinks on the deck is almost as good as it gets. Schooner Wharf is a friendly, laid-back island hangout with historic tall ships parked on one side and a bar and live music on the other. The bar has long been a favorite with locals and visitors alike. It also acts as a vital anchor in the town, holding several festivities and events and supplying a few vessels to the Conch Republic Navy.
The local musicians are some of the finest in town, the dance floor is constantly busy, the cuisine is tasty, and the view from the upper deck is well worth the trek.
