Humuhumu’s description

Bootlegger Tiki opened in 2014, in the same spot that decades prior had housed the Palm Springs location of Don the Beachcomber

. The owners also operate Ernest Coffee, right nextdoor. The walls and ceiling are lined with lauhala mats and Asian-motif graphic wallpaper, framed by bamboo. A creative slate of craft-inspired tiki cocktails are offered. There is a small covered outdoor patio.

This place has the best original tiki drinks of anywhere I've been. Chad has taken in often times fresh non-tiki bartenders and somehow given them enough guidance and freedom to create some really unique drinks. Sit at the bar for the best experience. Great staff.

I heard great things about Bootlegger when I was planning my tiki trip to Palm Springs, so I was quite excited to visit. The bar is small but well decorated. The service was prompt, and the menu seemed well thought out. However, I didnít really enjoy the two drinks I had (the Coco Loco and the Seven Hellís). I scoured the menu for drinks that appealed to me and asked the bartender about some options but wasnít really struck by anything that sounded amazing. The vibe in this place wasnít very tiki, despite the decor and music. The patrons were very loud and the bartenders didnít really seem to have the passion about their job or their drinks that Iíve come to expect from a good tiki bar. Overall I just didnít really click with Bootlegger, but I can see why others enjoy it!

CORRECTION! My girlfriend just reminded me that we had salt and vinegar almonds, not spicy peanuts. I guess those drinks mustíve been stronger than I thought!
