Humuhumu’s description

Tacoma Cabana was opened by owner and bartender Jason Alexander and Robyn Murphy in Tacoma's downtown in 2012. The establishment was a mix of traditional midcentury Polynesian Pop, with some more modern-day Hawaiian influences. The bar had a large selection of rums, and a particular focus on the quality of the cocktails.
Alexander and Murphy opened a new tiki bar nearby, Devil's Reef

, in January 2018, where they lean harder into full-on tiki. Over the next months they worked to shift their efforts entirely to the new business, and closed Tacoma Cabana on September 1, 2018.

I was fortunate enough to get to visit Cabana, 4 times, the last time being on "CLOSING FOREVER" night, and I enjoyed Every visit to this 'Tiki-flavored' Rum Bar.
Brandon, the lead bartender is excellent in his craft, and Jason and Robin are fabulous hosts.
I really liked the extensive drink menu, which fortunately will mostly be carried on at their New place Devil's Reef.
TC will be missed, as it had a delightful, friendly atmosphere, and substantial kitchen, but, while nothing lives forever...the best of this place will carry on, 3 blocks away, at the at the Reef,
