Schooner Wharf Bar, Key West
The Schooner Wharf was originally located on board the Schooner Diamante. It moved ashore in 1984 and was housed in a former shrimp packing warehouse that was renovated to create a rustic and inviting ambiance. For this purpose, the walls have been covered in nautical decor, including old fishing nets, buoys, and flags.
Over the years, the bar has evolved into a very special place, expanded into a neighboring building, and added a second-floor deck with a panoramic view of yacht decks, magical sunsets, and Key West's Historic Seaport. A staple of the local community, this popular waterfront joint is now probably the hottest bar on the shore of Key West and has been featured in articles by The NY Times and Aqua Magazine.
The Schooner Wharf serves a variety of drinks and food, including fresh seafood, burgers, and sandwiches. Its signature drink is the Rumrunner, a tropical cocktail made with rum, fruit juice, and grenadine. Customers can enjoy their food and drinks while sitting at the bar, on the outdoor deck, or the pier overlooking the water.
The bar hosts live music shows almost every night of the week, featuring local musicians playing a variety of genres including rock, country, and blues. The nights when Michael McCloud is there with his band deserve a particular note. There are also special events throughout the year, such as the annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration in April and the Lighted Boat Parade during the holiday season.
A great place to linger after walking all day.
