Humuhumu’s description

Old dive of a tiki bar in Phoenix, which historically has served beer but not tropical drinks. In recent years that's been changing, with a small selection of tropicals on offer.

Tiki snobs need to check their attitudes at the door. Comfortable, kitschy, unpretentious, fun, and friendly are all words that come to mind as I try to sum up the place. Yep, it's a dive and that adds to the charm. If you can't appreciate that then you don't belong there. We arrived shortly after it opened at 3 p.m. so it wasn't anywhere near crowded which allowed our bartender, Michelle, to give us lots of attention and tell us stories about the history of the place. It's been around since the 1940s and my understanding is that it's the oldest continually operating bar in Phoenix. Can't wait to return...

Fun and perky dive bar! And thatís what it is, a dive bar with tiki decor. It actually has the makings of a fabulous tiki bar if the owner would just invest a little bit more money. Every year he makes an amazing custom tiki mug that he sells on New Yearís Eve. Unfortunately were never in town for New Yearís Eve and theyíre sold out before we can get back 😩. Heís a great artist itís a shame he does such a small limited number and then thatís all he does for the rest of the year. Please please invest more money in this bar and bring it up to the standards that it could/should be. Iíd go all the time if that were the case!

This was my #53 tiki bar Iíve visited. Thought this place was great. Itís got good bones that have withstood decades of bar patrons. Itís got character and a dark moodiness only a truly old, classic tiki bar can have. We hit every place in Phoenix and this and Undertow were my favorite. Yes, itís a beer bar and plays GnR but thatís why itís still standing since 1949. The drinks were nothing special but chatting with the bartender Mike about the placeís history and aliens made up for it. Donít miss this diamond in the rough. Itís a piece of tiki history.
