Humuhumu’s description

Hidden Harbor opened in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh in January 2016. The bar is owned by Peter and Matt Kurzweg, who own the brewery next door, and their partner, tikiphile Adam Henry. The decor is decorated in a more nautical style than a tiki style, with no bamboo, rattan or thatch. There are, however, three large tikis carved by Crazy Al Evans. The drink menu is a mix of classic tiki drinks and modern tropicals, and there are special themed nights with more focused tropical drink menus. There is a small selection of food available, including a pu-pu platter.

Wahini and I were in town for a KISS concert, but had to make sure to spend time at a few Tiki bars. Hidden Harbor did not disappoint. I know my score seems low, but if you look at the ratings, you'll see it's only because of the music, tikiness, and moderness of the bar. The staff was amazing, the drinks were top notch, and Adam, one of the owners, even came out personally to speak with us and make sure we were enjoying ourselves. They were out of all of their mugs, so we'll have to grab one online when they come back in stock, but we left with some tiki swag courtesy of the bartender. I definitely recommend spending some time in HH and trying a few of their modern selections of cocktails, as well as a few tried and trues.

Let me give you another perspective: I was attending a conference in Pittsburgh where I had signed a covenant stating that I would it drink while in attendance. I know. Just leave it. Anyway, when we visited Hidden Harbor, we were limited to the virgin offerings and mocktail section of the menu. We were greeted immediately at the door and put in the wait list while we bellied up to the bar. We started with A for Aloha. Fassionola was a great addition! But the real winner was the Riptide. Such depth of flavor in a virgin drink! It was amazing.

Everyone else can telll you about the vibe (tiki cool), the decor (Crazy Al!), the rum (over 300!), and the music (reggae and hip hop beats suggesting that the framed Martin Denny albums on the walls still contain their unspun vinyl), but I will tell you that if you have friends who donít or canít drink, that this is still the place for them. I am anxious to return soon.

And I will drink rum on that day. Oh, I will drink rum on that day.

Hidden Harbor is legit. It doesn't offer the most amount of drink types but they make up for it in presentation and quality. These are some of the best presented drinks I've seen around with plenty of flowers, swizzlers, straws, cinnamon, limes, fire, and more. The drinks are creative and strong focusing on the unique rums and complexity tiki can offer. The food is improving, more small bites than typical, but it is delicious. The atmosphere is more bright seaside than dark Trader Vic, but that's ok.
