Fodor’s Review

Posted On:

Fodor’s gives the Parrot a positive if somewhat innocuous review here.
“Pause for a libation at the open-air Green Parrot Bar. Built in 1890, the bar is said to be Key West’s oldest. The sometimes-rowdy saloon has locals outnumbering out-of-towners, especially on weekends when bands play.”

See their take of Key West in general here, and their snarky but spot-on snapshot of our Main Street here:”…Duval Street looks like a miniature Las Vegas lined with garish signs for T-shirt shops and tour company offices. Cruise ships dwarf the town’s skyline and fill the streets with day-trippers gawking at the hippies with dogs in their bike baskets, gay couples walking down the street holding hands, and the oddball lot of locals, some of whom bark louder than the dogs.”
Although not included in the Fodor review I did manage to find this picture of a tourist clutching her cell phone camera while racing to photograph what she must consider an interesting character on Duval Street.
