Humuhumu’s description

Adrift is a modern-era tiki bar and restaurant. The primary focus is quality, classic tiki cocktails. The bar is covered in plenty of bamboo, the walls are lined with bamboo, and murals of elegant vintage-feel scenes of Polynesia are framed in bamboo, as well. Light comes from pufferfish lamps, glass floats, and a bit of fire for good measure. Carved tikis are found inside, and outside the building is flanked with metal tiki wall sconces and two large carved tikis.

Been many times and something is always a bit off about Adrift. Decor is great, and drinks are really good (although a little on the weak side). It's too many little things. For one it seems to focus a bit too much on the restaurant angle, which is fine, but kinda feel a little uncomfortable if I just want to get my rum on. Plus not enough bar seating. Also the music is usually wrong. Not completely bad like pop or rap or something, but not quite right. Usually 60s soul, or other genres that are from the right era but almost never hear exotica, lounge, or even surf. Also will say I just don't get the vibe the people working there are die hard tikiphiles. Still a solid choice but not great.

I was a little let down by this place. It was much brighter than I would prefer and the crowd not as laid back as some. I would give a second try, maybe it was just the night.

Knowing I'm a big tiki guy, my sister-in-law took our group of 6 people here for my bachelor/bachelorette party on Halloween of last year. We got there around 11/11:30, and boy did we have a helluva night. The two bartenders were clearly miffed when we walked in, as they were breaking down the bar and rearing to git. I was pretty wasted at this point, but I can still recognize a boozy zombie when I get one. After a while of chit chatting with our group, I decided to befriend the bartenders who were so gracious to humor our raucous hijinks. I showed them my big tiki tattoo and started talking shop about my local tiki bar. Soon enough, we were bosom buddies and they served me up my favorite drink, a macadamia nut chi-chi. Then they did some really cool fire tricks for us. My favorite memory is a video of my then fiance screaming during the little show. I ended up buying a very expensive mug before the night was done. While I can't speak about the food, I left with a big smile and will most certainly make the trek back there in the future.
