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.

First suggestion is get there early to sit at the bar! The best decor is at the bar. It was cool and dark, a nice contrast to the sun and heat outside. Carlos and Pablo (I think thatís right) were extremely personable. Good conversation and really knowledgeable about rums and music as well.
The drinks were pretty good. Itís all hit or miss with each persons taste buds... I go for the ones with the booze I like - like absinthe, so I generally enjoy them.
Maybe we will see Carlos at a tiki bartending event???
Have fun if you go 🤙

While not all of the drinks I tried were total hits, there is a real passion for tiki drinks here. They aren't happy to just go par for the course, but really put their own spin on the classic ingredients while maintaining a real tiki feel. Went twice this visit and will definitely go again next time I'm in down.
