Key West's bars are always packed with patrons, but during football season some of the island's favorite watering holes are overflowing with tourists and locals alike trying to catch their favorite team en route to the Superbowl. Where's the best place to catch the action? We've sifted through Key West's popular spots to the 10 best sports bars.
The newest addition to the island is JDL's Big Ten, on Caroline Street, the sleek joint that offers private suites to groups celebrating an event and six different time zones. If you are trying to catch some European sporting events, Shanna Key is your best bet, which boasts the "Southernmost Pint," as well as some traditional Irish fare. If it is an Irish pub you seek, Finnegan's Wake is another option with two separate happy hour time slots.
For a true locals spot, Don's Place is a solid choice, while the smoke-filled Stick and Stein Sports Cafe serves up some of best chicken wings in the Keys. Country music lovers can cheer their team at Cowboy Bill's and then watch some fools fall of the mechanical bull. Of course, there's Jack Flats and the Rum Barrel, two go-two spots that are always full with sports fans.
