The early bird catches the worm - and the drink deals. Key West has plenty of morning happy hours for early risers or those who pull all-nighters. Here are just a few of those who offer good deals at odd hours.
Head to the Historic Seaport to see the boats set out for the day from Schooner Wharf Bar. The bar was the saloon of choice of famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher and features a treasure of its own - a daily 8 - 12 p.m. happy hour with friendly prices on specialty drinks like Schooner Lemonade, Rumrunners, and Mango Daiquiris to pair with their full American-Caribbean style breakfast menu. 202 William St.
Bagatelle’s gorgeous 19th century architecture certainly speaks for itself, but their pre-lunch happy hour options are just as eye-catching. The eatery’s daily breakfast happy hour from 9 - 11:30 a.m. highlights beautifully presented tapas, small-plate style breakfast items, prepared by Executive Chef Ben Schneller (think glazed bacon, lump blue crab cakes, and shrimp and bacon breakfast tacos). Their early-morning libations are incredible, with options like a Tennessee Whiskey Peach Lemonade, Duval Paloma, and mimosas with a choice of fresh orange juice, grapefruit, mango, peach, or blueberry jam. 115 Duval St.
The “first and last bar off of Duval Street” has been a local’s favorite for decades with an inside sports bar, outside tiki bar, and liquor store complete with a drive-up window. Don’s is only closed from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m., with an early-morning happy hour taking place at the inside bar 7 - 12 p.m. A drink at Don’s is always a fun time, but a morning visit is your best shot to have their array of classic bar games all to yourself. 1000 Truman Ave.
If you booked your Key West stay with us here at 24 North Hotel, you’ll be in the heart of Rooster Row, a tiny enclave hugging the northeast corner of Key West. Our island neighborhood makes happy hour an all-day affair. Beginning at Barefoot Bar & Brew, spend the day visiting Toasted Coconut, Rum Row, and Salty Lime before ending at Republica Bar & Lounge at 24 North Hotel. Our Cuban-inspired craft cocktail lounge features picture-worthy mixed drinks like the Key West Sunset and the Cigar Smoking Smuggler made with Key West Smuggler Whiskey, agave syrup, aromatic and orange bitters, and Italian dark red cherry infused with smoke from a Rodriguez Reserve cigar (pictured above). The savings run even deeper every Wednesday night for Half Past Island Time, when the lounge has ½ price select wines from 5 - 11:30 p.m. See our events calendar for happy hour times along Rooster Row.
