Our Unique New Year's Eve Maritime Tradition of The Lowering of the
Pirate Wench will not be held this year. We are looking for alternative
ways to celebrate a festive holiday season. Stay tuned.......details to
Join your friends and make new ones at the Schooner Wharf Bar New
Year’s Eve Celebration.
The popular waterfront watering hole once again will present its
nautical New Year’s Eve tradition with “The Lowering of the Pirate
Wench” from the towering mast of the tall ship America 2.0 docked in
front of the bar in the Key West Bight.
Everyone’s favorite pirate
wench and co-owner of Schooner Wharf Bar, Evalena Worthington, will
descend dramatically against large, illuminated countdown numbers. The
stroke of midnight will signal the start of 2021 with cannon fire and
the jubilant sound of horns and noisemakers from the crowd against a
backdrop of the ship’s crew dressed as pirates.
|Schooner Wharf has complimentary
hats, party favors and horns for everyone to feel festive while enjoying
holiday drink specials and live music throughout the day and night. The
bash was rated by AOL as the No. 2 New Year’s party in the nation – second
only to the Times Square madness in New York City.
The festivities start early with guitarist Michael McCloud taking the
stage from 11:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Michael has an incredible ability of
commanding the audience with his unique humor and original music and
showmanship. Followed by some of the best music this island has to offer!
As the midnight hour approaches, a local DJ will play party favorites
in anticipation of the Auld Lang Syne. The event is emceed by Key West
magician Frank Everhart and radio personality Bill Hoebee. Hoist your
drink – and your eyes – toward the top of the towering mast as the
countdown begins and another year ends.
But the end of the year isn’t the end of the party – the Schooner New Year
rocks until 4 a.m. All this and No Cover Charge.
Have a safe and exciting New Year, from your friends at Schooner Wharf
Bar, “A last little piece of old Key West.”
