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.

I will not be negative but if you've been to any of the top 20 tiki bars in the US or top 10 on Critikis list then I highly recommend setting at a table and not the bar because it is hard to watch. Bartender with blonde hair was rude and very uninvolved and I was told the "law" about drinking overproof rum when I ordered some Plantation overproof. The bar was a wreck. The bartenders decided to take a shot break before finishing a group of ladies drinks (who by this time already got a table) and I was ready to leave pretty quick besides the engagement of the tall bartender (Steven?). The cocktail scene in Denver is amazing so go to any great cocktail bar in the city and you can get a far better "tiki" cocktail and hospitality experience then at Adrift.

Look, I used to LOVE this place! It was not perfect but it was great and it was all Denver had. Under new management known for their popular ice cream shop, they made some changes and I guess overall I was not impressed. I wanted so much for improvement but now I feel like it has lost it's spark. Although I think it is better than some of the bars on the college popular South Broadway, I can't help but feel like it is now the new ironic hang out for the hipsters. (It hurts writing a review like this, really). They made some drink changes, cut out a lot of drinks and added only a few and raised the price by quite a bit. I would recommend it for visitors but I unfortunately don't see myself as a regular here anymore.

VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE! Balanced, liquor-forward cocktails from the traditional menu, and a kitchen paying very close attention to details and presentation. Manager and wait staff are all friendly and kind. Good atmosphere and vibe. Any tiki head passing through Denver will appreciate this place.
