We all have our favourite bars that we like to go to regularly.
The kind of places that like that old TV programme Cheers, states that “everybody knows your name”
You feel comfortable.
You feel warm
And most importantly you know the prices of the drinks and so won’t get ripped off by the heavily tattooed barman with the handle bar moustache, standing in front of a signed photo of themselves and David Hasselhoff proudly displayed behind the bar.
Has the Hoff visited every bar in America???
But how do you know what you are going to get when you’re on vacation?
How do you know that the ones just down the road from where you are staying are any good?
Well to be honest, it’s all subjective as what one person wants from a place to drink, another person might not.
So what we have done, is like the other areas that we review on this site, such as hotels, restaurants and attractions simply grouped them by Island, starting with the highest percentage of drinking establishments found on any of the islands that make up the Florida Keys.
Due to the amount of drinking places to be found within the Keys, many of the pages dedicated to the islands bars and pubs will spread over several pages.
So follow the links and find the drinks (see what we did there!!!!)
And of course have the greatest vacation you could possibly hope for (if you can remember it again afterwards.)

Guide To Drinking In Key Largo Florida
One thing for sure you will not be spending as much time drinking in Key Largo as you will down at the bottom of the Keys in Key West.
There are nowhere near as many drinking places as the Southernmost point.
But that doesn't mean that after a great day out diving and exploring the reefs, and wrecks that Key Largo has built its "Diving Capital Of the World" name around you can't find a nice place or two to relax with a cold beer.
What you will notice with our guide, that quite a few of the bars are linked to Hotels and restaurants in Key Largo.
Do not think for a moment if one of the locations that we recommend is in a hotel that you can only use the facilities if you are actually staying at the resort.
This isn't the case in Key Largo, or really the rest of the Keys.
You can drop in for a refreshing cocktail or two whenever you want, and the restaurants won't make you order a table and eat if you just fancy a quick drink either.
