Humuhumu’s description

This sleek, modern tiki-ish bar may not have had the lush and dense decor of a Trader Vic's or the Mai Kai, but there's one thing it had: the drinks. Martini Monkey (specifically, bar manager Jay Crabb) prided itself on recreating classic tropical cocktails by keeping true (well, mostly true) to the original recipes. Martini Monkey thrived in its location in the San Jose Airport's Terminal C, until the airport reshuffled and Martini Monkey wound up behind security. The airport closed Terminal C in June 2010, and Martini Monkey closed with it.
