Foursquare Tips

  • Navy Grog is strong... can you handle it?
  • Rum. Rum? RUM! rum. RUUUUUM!! Rrrrrum. Jesus Christ I'm drunk.
  • SF Weeklys Best Of 2011 Winner Editorial Pick BEST FLAMING DRINKThe Top-Notch Volcano blends pineapple, lime, & passionfruit juices with maraschino plus a private reserve rum
  • Get the Puka Punch. It's on 7x7's Top 100 list for 2011.
  • A haven for rum lovers; be sure to chat up the bartender if you're at all interested in tiki history. These guys know their stuff.
  • The Apple of Alcoholism.
  • Zombie. Just drink it
  • Great place to get a delicious cocktail, especially if you love rum. Go early it's a small bar and will fill up fast. Worth the wait. Try a El Draque or Smugglers Cove signature drink in a Rum Barrel.
  • Rum fanatic Martin Cate opened the new-wave tiki bar to spotlight the 400-odd rums hes sourced from around the globe.
  • Volcano bowl!
  • For a taste of true Hawaii, get the Kona Cocktail, made with pineapple, passion fruit, dark Jamaican rum, lime, & honey.
  • I'm a pirate argh! The bartender lights the rum on fire, then immediately sprinkles a generous dash of cinnamon on top... That's the one you wanna order. Also, you can ask for the Painkiller #5.
  • Quit crying and complaining and drink damn it!
  • Drink the Fogcutter.

  • Yes, most of the drinks at this tropical-paradise bar contain rum. Yes, some of them include coconut, pineapple or allspice, too. No, they are not cloyingly sweet. They're quite excellent, in fact.
  • If you're Australian, get the Aku Aku. It's a Pine Lime Splice. It's a fucking PINE LIME SPLICE! I'm drunk.
