Humuhumu’s description

The Upstairs Bar is a tiki-themed hideaway, above The Franklin Bar, which is a speakeasy-style craft cocktail bar. The walls are lined with lauhala matting and thatch, with private booth seating and a bar. There are a few tiki masks on the walls. The menu is a mix of classic tiki drinks and newer creations, served in the craft cocktail style.

We checked this spot out before heading to Wildwood. The volume was really loud between a large group and pounding rap music, which didn't create much atmosphere. The decor is ok, but not much. The drinks were good, but the service was in the weeds. The bartender proceeded to have enough shots to knock over someone's drink, topple a bottle, and break a big glass skull mug. Another bartender was in on his night off and jumped in to help. What we saw of him looked much better. Obviously didn't catch them on their best night.
