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.

Bad news: As of July 2019, this bar changed its menu and decor and is now a tequila and mezcal bar.

Unfortunately due to people stealing mugs, and killing their overhead, this place will be closing soon :(
Sad that some people can’t act like adults and have killed someone’s dream and business.

I wasn’t impressed at all. It felt very clubby, the patrons were not typical tiki people, and the drinks were nothing to write home about. We had one drink and then got out of there. The bartender serving us was nice though :)
