#Libation: Bartender Liz Lynch serves up her signature drink, the Lizarita.

Schooner Wharf Bar at Key West Historic Seaport is like a fantasy pirate hangout with unique nautical decor, music, food, and total proximity to the sweet ocean breeze. And the bar is as true as its name. Schooners — either under sail or docked nearby — are a common sight from a Schooner Wharf barstool. The bar was established in 1984 and is located on the site of the old Singleton Shrimp Factory.

As its frequented by sailors, the bartenders have to make great drinks, and they do. Their Schooner Breeze has four flavors of rum, pineapple, cranberry and a dark rum floater. The bartender that has been there the longest, Liz Lynch, has her own cocktail, the “Lizarita” made with Patron and Cointreau.

“I bet if you drink one, you’ll order a second,” said Lynch.

Aside from the great drinks, Schooner Wharf also has a long menu. Peel-and-eat shrimp is a favorite with locals and they also like the great burger.

The venue also features live music every night and magic from Frank Everhart. Dogs are welcome, too. Stop by their location on 202 William St. and experience it for yourself.
