of the "Lowering of the Pirate Wench"

Thousands of spectators showed up to 'rigging in' 2014 with us at Schooner Wharf. Our own pirate wench, Evalena, was lowered from the mast of Schooner America 2.0 complete with a dove release, cannon blast and thunderous enthusiastic applause.

Make Schooner Wharf Your New Year�s Resolution ...
January 31st

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 2014 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. Key West Doves will present a beautiful dove release sponsored by Richard Moriaty of the Turtle Hospital.

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.

But the weather�s better in Key West and there�s more room to dance at Schooner Wharf, at the foot of William Street. The music starts at noon with Michael McCloud strumming island favorites, followed by a local band TBA. Next up from 10:00 pm playing into the new year is the bounding energy of the four-piece Josh Garrett Band pounding out their soulful Louisiana roots. Cajun, Zydeco, and Blues at its best!

As the midnight hour approaches, DJ Kelly will play holiday favorites in anticipation of the Auld Lang Syne. 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.

The New Year starts in Old Key West, where pirates of the past drink to the future at Schooner Wharf Bar �rigging in the new year.�

Have a safe and exciting New Year, from your friends at Schooner Wharf Bar, �A last little piece of old Key West.�
