Cool place to visit. No big sign on the door, however, much worth the experience. Rum drinks were very good. Visited with my son and his girlfriend. Highly recommended just for the ambieance and novelty of the bar.

The Tiki Bar has an excellent selection of rum flights and cocktails. The crowds build up on weekends. The staff is really fun and professional. There's no tv or jukebox. There's music played. The kind of music from Sirius #69. Great place to drink in...More

It's already crowded enough! Killer rum punches and giant rum bowls to share with friends. The decor, the hideaway location, the drinks. This place is so cool.

Dark and inviting, just like a cove. Many different drinks to choose from carefully crafted. People are friendly everyone enjoying the experience. No food is served.

Wow what a great little cocktail bar, a little out of the way but the taxi drivers know where it is! The mai tai's are to die for. It is only a very small place over three levels but it has a wonderful atmosphere.

This place is unreal. Sets its self apart because of the dedication and love that went into building this concept. Over 70 cocktails and 400 rums. Hands down best tiki bar in the world

Get there early, or be prepared to stand in a queue. Even before the bar (Tiki-Bar) opened, there was already a line to get in. It is a small venue with three levels. All drinks are rum based. Wonderful atmosphere, a bit dark but intimate....More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
