Here are our picks for the best happy hour restaurants in Key West, all within 10 minutes of The Southernmost Inn

Old Town Tavern Key West 

Located on Duval Street, Old Town Tavern is in the heart of nightlife in Key West. Get 50 percent off of share plates, like a shrimp scampi flatbread, tempura asparagus, tuna poke, or pork belly. House liquors and glasses of wine are also half off. As Old Town Tavern Key West is also a beer garden, of course beers will be discounted as well, with 25 percent off of all offerings. Happy hour is not only from 4 to 7 p.m. but also from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. because happy hour twice in a night is something we all need when out on Duval Street. 

Conch Republic Key West 

Known as Conch Farm to locals, Conch Republic Key West has stunning views of the ocean while sitting in their open-air space. With raving reviews from locals and visitors alike, order two-for-one beers, wines, or well drinks from 4 to 7 p.m. It’s the farthest from The Southernmost Inn at a whopping eight minutes drive, but well worth the food, drinks, and the views. Conch Republic Key West is definitely a strong contender for one of the best happy hour restaurants in Key West.  

Thirsty Mermaid Key West 

At this raw bar and restaurant, happy hour runs from 4 to 6 p.m. Don’t miss the $2 pints of mermaid lager while dining in the airy and stylish space. Add a $5 appetizer, such as the mac and cheese croquette, chicken wings with chili pineapple glaze, Apalachicola oysters or ceviche du jour for a well-rounded experience at Thirsty Mermaid Key West. 

Blue Macaw Key West 

Three-dollar drinks mean you don’t have to feel guilty about ordering two, or maybe three to pair with the bar and restaurant’s various half-price apps. Peruse spinach and lobster dip, buffalo shrimp, truffle fries, or guava bbq baby back ribs to start. Live music makes the three hours a truly happy time at Blue Macaw Key West.  

Key West Inns
