Humuhumu’s description

Tacoma Cabana was opened by owner and bartender Jason Alexander and Robyn Murphy 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.
Alexander and Murphy are opening a second tiki bar nearby, Devil's Reef

I had the pleasure of visiting Tacoma Cabana on a recent Saturday evening. The place was bustling with energy and everyone seemed to be having a great time but in a sophisticated manner (for something more unruly, check out the other bars on Pacific on a Saturday night).

The drinks here are very well done. My Mai Tai was high quality, though it used Rum Agricole which isn't my favorite. Service is outstanding. The music was straight exotica, so quite good at setting the mood. Decor is a mixed bag and definitely a little bit of a DIY vibe. This is a very large establishment with several rooms (some not currently being used), so it's a little disorienting.

Definitely worth visiting even if nearby Devil's Reef is better in basically every respect.

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