Green Parrot

Welcome to the first and last bar on US 1. Just outside of the bar is the MM 0 sign - the beginning (or the end, depending how you look at it) of US 1. The building itself was built in 1890, making it part of Key West history.

Continuing our quest to go to every bar on/near Duval, we wandered into the Green Parrot one night, just to see what it was about. After paying the small cover and getting a wristband, we grabbed a beer and sat down at one of the tables in the small bar. We soon realized that we were some of the youngest patrons of this bar. Everyone our age was down on Duval. The crowd was mostly locals with a few bikers and Parrotheads. Rumor has it that when Jimmy Buffett comes to town, he comes here to hang out.

The jukebox played music that was mostly rock, with some blues thrown in. Mixed in with all the portraits, and the large wall mural of the Garden of Eden, were signs all over the walls advertising the zydeco and blues bands that play here on the weekends. The beer was cold. The bar offered darts, pool, video games, pinball and a dance floor.
