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.

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 :)

This place was really cool. They are really doing it right here. However, they don't serve food so definitely eat first. Also, they are playing Alt 90s music which does not fit the mood. It does not always need to be surf/hawaiian music but thank goodness it was not 80s music. Very reasonable prices for the drinks considering, friendly knowledgeable staff as well.

This place was a more “conservative” tiki, it wasn’t over the top tiki we all know and love. But the place was still really nice, clean and the bartenders really cared and talked to you like an old friend. The drinks were strong, were good and served in awesome tiki glassware. We took a few home of course lol $10 a piece wasn’t half bad either for the mugs. I would definitely still recommend this place if you’re in the area. I look forward to visiting again.
