This is a tiki bar without the kitsch. It looks more like a Colonial island saloon, classy but rustic, somewhere you should wear a slightly dusty white linen suit and a Panama hat. Or is that just us? Either way, we love it.
It’s all about proto-tiki cocktails, the forefathers of the tiki drinks we know today, though they’re not above paper umbrellas or novelty glassware (and what’s tiki without those?). The drinks list changes weekly, but they stick to the Caribbean-inspired theme while keeping things fresh. We had a Storm in Miniature (Giffard Grapefruit Liqueur, Baska Snaps, lemon, Allspice Dram Worthy Park Jamaican Pot Still Gold Rum and cinnamon) and a Bronze Beautified (Hendrick’s Gin, Guillaumette Genepi, pineapple, lemon and mint). Both were perfectly balanced and refreshing. It’s worth coming back on a weekly basis just to see what else manager Nick Detrich and his awesome team come up with.
The rustic Colonial food fits right in. This is the fanciest version of Peas N Rice we’ve ever seen and we’re pretty sure Ropa Vieja (directly translated as ‘old clothes) has never tasted this good. With a pretty tropical courtyard out back, this is somewhere to stay from dinner through to after hours.
