Ten Best Happy Hours in Key West

It's 5 o'clock Somewhere!

Hey, it is called HAPPY Hour for a reason, people! Sure, it may be more than an hour long, but it does pretty much guarantee happiness. And what’s not to smile about? You get cheap booze, free bar snacks (some places go all out – not just nachos!), menu specials, and a bunch of people that gather for these goodies to get happy!

Happy hour is a great way to blow off steam after a long day at work, or if you are on vacation in Key West , it is an even better afternoon way to segue between the day’s amazing tourist events and the happening nightlife to come. You can usually find locals and tourists mingling together, so it is a great way to meet people on your Key West getaway.
There are lots of bars and pubs in glorious Key West to get your drink on, but we believe this Top 10 has the most happening Happy Hours of all.

10. Half Shell Raw Bar

This is an old school Key West joint: located on the water, wooden picnic tables, fishermen unloading the day’s catch in the restaurants fish market, and a totally happening Happy Hour including some of the best catches of the day.

9. Bagatelle

From 4-6pm enjoy 2/1 glasses of wine and a small plates menu that you will love! It's a great place on Duval Street to people watch and drink and eat without breaking the bank.

8. Conch Republic Seafood

This place is a must-visit on your trip! Some of the best seafood in town, the locals love it as much
as the tourists. Fresh seafood is delivered daily to the restaurant’s docks, and Happy Hour is filled with 2-for-one’s galore. Get your drink and food on and meet new friends!

7. Margaritaville

What would a trip to Key West be without a stop at Jimmy Buffett’s famous bar?? It is right on Duval Street, the main drag of the island, so you will be right in the middle of all the fun. There are 2 Happy Hours here: 5-7PM and 10pm-midnight, so you can enjoy $3 beers and the famous Cheeseburger in Paradise to your heart’s content.

6. Santiago's Bodega

You will just love this place: there is an outdoor garden area to dine or inside bar or table service. From 3-6pm enjoy a $6 menu and 50% all drinks. You probably need to make a reservation because this place is a hot spot!

5. Vino's

This one is a wine bar (as you can tell by the name), and offers a slightly different vibe than the pub scene. It is romantic, has a great outdoor porch to people watch, has a great sangria Happy Hour, great wine and craft beer, and they even offer blankets to patrons to snuggle up while sitting at the bar! I mean come on, what’s not to adore?

4. Grand Cafe

Fine wines, perfect martini’s, this is happy hour for grown-ups. Located in a Victorian mansion on Duval but set apart from the hustle and bustle, you are guaranteed a sweet time at the back bar. Enjoy half price beer, wine and martini’s as well as delicious light fare.

3. Smoking Tuna

This saloon is a newer one and located in Old Town on Duval Street. There’s live music, a happening raw bar, sweet drink specials, and a totally fun time. This is the place to go to get your party on!

2. Hog's Breath

This world-famous watering hole is a must-drink-at stop. There is a great, outdoor covered patio, live music, dancing, drinks are flowing and it’s always a party at the Hog’s Breath.

1. Viv Wine Bistro

Viv Wine Bistro's buy an appetizer and wine and get your second glass of wine free is a great deal! They will pair up your wine with something delicious!
