The Best Bars for Foodies in the Florida Keys

The OpenTable Team

The Florida Keys span 113-miles of connected islands with exquisite seaside views of the Caribbean. A drive through these parts features topaz waters, diving pelicans and lush green mangroves. But the area also hosts a treasure trove of attractions! John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo stands out as the first undersea park in the country. The Keys History and Discovery Center offer information on the long history of the islands. You can check out the rare flora and fauna in Bahia Honda State Park or visit the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum in Key West! While here, you’ll definitely want to check out the awesome nightlife this tropical paradise has to offer! But where are the smartest, savviest locals going out for a lively libation? Welcome to the Tastemaker Lists. If you’re looking for a great place to grab a drink, check out our Tastemaker 20 List of the best bars in the Florida Keys.
