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.

Nice visit here! The Hidden Harbor isn't on the menu anymore, but they will still make it for you. It's okay. I was excited to drink the bowl with pawpaw puree as an ingredient, but (I should have known!) it is out of season so there was a substitution. Will be back!

I made a trip to Pittsburgh basically just to go to Hidden Harbor and I was not disappointed. As previous comments have pointed out, the decor is a bit of a mix. There is a more traditional tiki-themed side that has three Crazy Al pieces, including a huge free-standing tiki carved from the trunk of a palm tree and two masks hanging on the wall. The other side is more nautical themed with brighter colors. There are glass floats in the window and outside they have tropical plants. Overall, it's really nice. There is a huge rum selection behind the bar. It's quite impressive. The menu is fairly extensive and the drink quality is fantastic. I had a Rum Barrel, a Zombie, and the signature Hidden Harbor. All were excellent. Service was top notch and the staff is very enthusiastic and willing to geek out about tiki stuff. This is a fantastic and fun bar that I will visit as often as possible.

If there was such a thing as a "new school Tiki bar" then Hidden Harbor would be it. No thatch, no huts, but big Tiki statues all around. The bar has a "modern" feel to it. At first I was taken back because Hidden Harbor doesn't look like a Tiki bar in a traditional sense but it does have a cool look to it which I really started to dig as I had a couple drinks in me.

Oh yeah, the drinks are top notch! Get the "Hidden Harbor" and the 3 Dots and Dash was the best I ever had.
