Humuhumu’s description

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

Washington States only Tiki bar! Jason and crew are top notch. Can't say enough good about this spot.

So get this...11-day "vacation" planned with the in-laws, starting with 3 days in Seattle and followed by 8 days on a cruise! Could I find any retreat?! More importantly, could I fiind a way to Tacoma Cabana...secretly, my preferred vacation destination?! But what reason could I give to slip away an hour's drive to Tacoma?

Fortunately, those first 3 days were close quarters and we all sought our space...and I was able to convince my wife and a few of the "kids" to make the trip to Tacoma Cabana (introducing one of them to a true tiki destination).

Jason was the consummate and most generous host! What a great evening in a delightful space! We didn't get to try the food, but the 5 of us worked our way through the drink menu without disappointment. I particularly liked the division of the space with different areas having a slightly different ambience.

So worth the trip...and may have been the best part of that 11-day "vacation"! Thanks, Jason!

I live in Seattle which is 45 mins north of Tacoma. The drive is even longer with traffic but Tacoma Cabana is so worth the trip! Jason Alexander (The Bartender and owner) has won awards and if you try his drinks, you will see why. What I love most about Tacoma Cabana is that you can tell the owners Robyn and Jason are totally into Tiki culture and it shows in their bar.

If your coming into Seattle, I highly, highly recommend taking the trip down to Tacoma Cabana. You won't regret it!
