Historic Seaport Happy Hour Stroll
Steps away from our resort you’ll find a few of our favorite open-air, waterfront restaurants and bars with the best seaport views and happy hours on the island. You don’t have to go far to enjoy the happiest of hours in Key West. Each one of these establishments offers a casual fun atmosphere with a view and some unique island experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
Begin or end your stroll at The Marker
Before or after your Seaport Happy Hour Stroll head over to Cero Bodega, our poolside bar, and enjoy $2 off drinks and $5 small plates. Happy Hour at Cero Bodega begins at 3:30pm.
Sip and stroll through the Harbor and visit our five happy hour hot spots:
Half Shell Raw Bar
First stop on our Happy Hour stroll is the Half Shell Raw Bar, a favorite amongst the locals and captains due to its location and proximity to the Key West commercial fishing fleet. It’s one of the best seafood restaurants on the island too. Enjoy raw oysters on the Half Shell, a bucket of steamed clams or clams on the half shell - just few of our favorites during happy hour. Half Shell offers ½ off beer, house wine and well drinks from 4:30 - 6:30pm daily

One of our favorite places to enjoy Happy Hour and sunset is the Tower Bar at Turtle Kraals. In addition to the food, drinks and happy hour specials you’ll have a front row seat to a spectacular sunset in paradise.
Did you know: There’s something extra special happening here, it’s the evening Turtle Races. One of the must-see-and-dos in Key West is to watch and/or take part in the Key West Turtle Kraals Turtle Races held Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm. Slow and Steady Wins the Race! Here’s how you can participate: starting at 4:30pm grab a free numbered ticket from the bartender and enjoy cocktails and a bite to eat. You’ll know when the race is about to start as crowds will gather to watch four box turtles scurry from start to finish. If your ticket number matches the number painted in tape on the back of the winning turtle, you’ll get a key and chance to open a treasure box with cash prize inside. Please call the restaurant for Turtle Race summer hours as the heat does impact our little friends.

Happy Hour at the Waterfront Brewery is from 4:30pm - 6:30pm at the bar and all waterfront brewery beers, well drinks and wines by the glass are half price.

Schooner Wharf Bar
At the foot of William Street, just steps from our resort, on the Historic Harbor Walk is where you’ll find Schooner Wharf Bar, “a last little piece of Old Key West.” There’s no glitz or glamour just one of the iconic places you must visit. It’s an open-air hangout with great drinks, live music and one of the few places that offers two happy hours: 7am - Noon and 5pm - 7pm. It’s mixology at it’s best and we aren’t just talking about the drinks. It’s about people you are about to meet, the stories and storytellers, the entertainment and the atmosphere. It’s also about the views, food and drinks but you will definitely take a step back into old Key West when you step foot in Schooner Wharf.

Scott S. from Punta Gorda recently visited Schooner Wharf Bar and his TripAdvisor review sums it up:
Best place to sit, sip and watch the waterfront activity
This has been one of my all time favorite watering holes. It has so much character (with many characters walking past) and is a great place to stop and get something to drink and eat. If in Key West you need to treat yourself to a bit of "Old Key West."
Hours: 7am - 4am
Happy Hours: 7am - Noon and 5pm -7pm

Early in the morning you’ll see the boats depart from the marina for a day of fun in the sun and water adventures. When they return one of the first places they are drawn to is the Conch Republic Seafood Company. It’s another fun casual restaurant with live music and great views of the harbor. Happy Hour is everyday from 4pm - 7pm at the Bar and Patio Only ~ 2 for 1 All Beer - Domestic, Import & Craft, 2 for 1 Premium Well Drinks, 2 for 1 House Wine.
