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.

Tomas is truly a master of the craft. Homemade infusions, over 200 rums and an original menu, this place is fabulous ! You simply must visit Ghent and The Drifter.
