UPDATED January 2020
Many of us think of Happy Hour as the slow down part of the day, but in Key West it’s just the beginning of a fantastic evening.
It seems most Key West bars offer happy our drink specials, but only a few offer great food for even a better price during those hours just before the sun goes down and the lights of Duval St. go up.
Best Key West Happy Hours:
1. Alonzo’s Oyster Bar Happy Hour
700 Front St, Key West, FL 33040
Seafood lovers can have their fill in Key West. A choice of oyster varieties can be found at Alonzo’s Oyster Bar located down in the historic seaport area of Key West. They serve up the largest variety of cold and warm water oysters on the island.
Alonzo’s happy hour is one of the island favorites for locals and tourists alike. Indoor and outdoor seating offering you an amazing dining experience with Key West harbor views.
They even serve up fresh steam middle neck clams in an amazing garlic sherry broth. Offering local Key West pink shrimp and fresh catches, make sure you check out their happy hour to find some of your favorite seafood and drinks for a very happy price.
You’ll think of Alonzo’s as your pearl in the oyster.
Happy Hour every day from 4p – 6:30p.
2. Southernmost Beach Cafe
1405 Duval St, Key West, FL 33040
Southernmost Beach Cafe is an open air restaurant and bar on the beach that serves up a great happy hour menu.
Well drinks to draft beer are on special and four to five appetizers are served up for a discount price.
The happy hour menu does change often and is only served at the bar. So get their early to get a seat.
Once you’ve finished your appetizers, order another drink to-go and take a walk on one of the best Key West Beaches, Southernmost Beach.
Dip your feet in the water and enjoy the view.
Happy Hour Sun. – Thurs. from 4p – 6p.
3. Half Shell Raw Bar
231 Margaret St, Key West, FL 33040
Located on the docks in the historic seaport, the Half Shell Raw Bar offers a taste of old Key West with its easy atmosphere.
Originally a shrimp packing plant, this well known fixture is considered the original Key West seafood restaurant.
Sit at the bar or eat at one of the picnic tables overlooking the harbor.
Fill up on $10 dozen raw oysters, $9.50 for 1/2 pound of beer steamed shrimp, $5.50 conch fritters and more from the happy hour menu. You can’t beat the location or the prices.

4. Rams Head Southernmost (previously Blue Macaw)
804 Whitehead St, Key West, FL 33040
On the corner of Whitehead St. and Petronia St. sits the Rams Head Southernmost, in the space that was once the struggling Bahama Village market. Now, an open air restaurant and bar with lush plants, tables with umbrellas and live music.
The food is excellent and affordable. If you happen to love Bloody Mary’s then you’ll be ecstatic over their massive build your own Bloody Mary bar (not part of their happy hour deals).
Happy hour is easily one of the best deals on the island. Half off appetizers, $3 bottle of beers, house wines and well drinks. The blue nachos have great reviews and I recommend the creamy spinach and lobster dip.
