Bright, fruity tipples, raucous cabaret shows, live jazz performances: by the beach, it’s all about dressed-down fun.
While frozen cocktails with tiny umbrellas (and the tiki bars that serve them) may be a relic of the 1950s in most other places, they’re still a staple of the Florida Keys. Sure, the area has evolved to suit the increasingly luxury-loving clientele who visit, but it also works hard to maintain that frozen-in-time feel (pun intended) that keeps tourists flocking to Florida’s most southerly region year after year. The Keys’ relaxed, lived-in vibe carries over to its bar scene (for the most part); having drinks with friends usually involves a pair of comfy jeans and a T-shirt, plus at least one fruity concoction, as you’ll find at the infamous Sloppy Joe’s. Sea views are, of course, optional, though encouraged (Sunset Pier and Hogfish Bar and Grill have some of the best). But if you’re looking to get dressed up and make it more of an occasion, there are plenty of venues to fit the bill, whether it’s a night of cabaret at La Te Da or handcrafted cocktails and live jazz by candlelight at the Little Room Jazz Club. Just don’t forget the sunblock. Here, we’ve rounded up the best bars in Key West, for when all that sunshine inevitably stirs up your thirst.

Perched above a bend in the Tyne is this no-nonsense Geordie boozer with great real ales. Its beer garden has the best view of the Tyne bridges, with the Baltic art gallery and the Millennium Bridge in the foreground – if you’re lucky, you will see it open to let boats go upstream. Sunsets there can be amazing, especially around the equinoxes, when the sun seems to sink into the river and the whole of Tyneside turns a warm pink.

Los Angeles’ stunning tropical views can be explored by the seaside, but why not take in this immaculate territory with a tasty cocktail in hand? Rooftop bars are steadily becoming the preferred bar style for those who are less inclined to visit the ashen settings of a dive bar.

You’ll want to find the bars with optimal sights, plenty of seating, and crafty cocktails in order to secure the deal.
