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.

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.

Was in town for a job interview which didnít go in my favor however the visit to Adrift made for a nice experience. TK was very accommodating.

Even though our trip was work related, my wife and I made sure to fit Adrift into our recent Denver visit: we would highly recommend you do the same if given the opportunity. We stopped in around 10:00 on a Saturday and, despite a fairly busy night, lucked into a couple seats at the bar. We each tried their Mai Tai which, despite straying a bit from the classic ingredients, was delicious, and then moved on to a Jungle Bird and a Chi Chi, both of which were also pretty great. The bar space is decorated in bamboo with some tikis strewn about (including two very large ones outside flanking the entrance), and a canoe overhead. There is a case showing their swag near the restrooms: their signature Poptiki mug will run you 65.00, but if you want a less pricey souvenir and donít care about how limited it is they have some basic,non-signature mugs available for between $10-15, as well as a t-shirt. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere was great (exotica music and Endless Summer playing on a large screen tv). All in all itís a great spot for a tropical escape the next time youíre in Denver.
