Key West, FL: The Chart Room Bar at Pier House Resort

1184941_626284837392666_1073227351_nUnexpectedly tucked into a small room of the otherwise luxurious Pier House Resort is The Chart Room bar. The dimly lit Chart Room features only a tiny bar, offering a few stools to those looking to settle in for the night. The floor is strewn with discarded peanut shells and spilled popcorn while the wall and ceiling are haphazardly lined with nostalgic nautical decor. The dive bar offers a casual, though occasionally rowdy, spot to tuck in for a drink before heading out into the chaotic night life scene offered by the rest of Duval Street. The bar offers a bit of history as well-the Pier House itself was built in 1968 and The Chart Room was where Treasure hunter Mel Fisher used to plot his dives as well as where Jimmy Buffett used to play his gigs during his time in Key West in the early 70’s.

Free popcorn, peanuts & hot dogs.
