    We're visiting from Costa Mesa, CA and will be here on Saturday night. We would love to meet new Tiki friends.

    We are visiting from Portland OR and will be in town Friday through Sunday. We are staying a block away from the bar so will be in both nights. We would love to hang out and meet the local tiki aficionados!

Humuhumu’s description

Owner and proprietor Tom Neijens opened The Drifter in April 2014, after many years spent making classic drinks, first at home, and then at a speakeasy-themed bar he co-owned. The Drifter is his full-dive into his passion for tiki drinks and Polynesian Pop history. The small space is dominated by a beautiful, undulating mosaic tile bar, and Neijens has continued to add more and more tiki to the space over the years, with bamboo seating, carved tikis, and faux palm trees.

Awesome Tiki bar. Handsome bartenders.
Might just be the most gnarly bar I've ever visited! Thanks!
