Humuhumu’s description

UnderTow opened in August 2016, in the lower level of Sip Coffee & Beer Garage. The interior was designed by Danny "Tiki Diablo" Gallardo.

Top notch! Probably my favorite of any newer tiki bars. Hits all the right notes. Amazing drinks (and one of the best menus I've seen), excellent decor for the small space, music on point, also very friendly staff. Highly recommended! Make sure to make a reservation.

I loved this place. For now, the best tiki bar I've ever been to and maybe the best tiki drinks. Bartender was excellent. The place is tiny. If you're claustrophobic, you'll freak out, especially since it's underground. They take reservations, so you don't have to wait for a seat unless you want to. I'll definitely go back when I'm in Phoenix again.

UnderTow is kind of hard to find being in the lower level of what seems like it use to be an auto mechanic garage that has turned into a coffee bar. But once you see the sign that says the bar is open the basement transports you into a boat on a doomed expedition in the Amazons. Complete with slowly infusion incense, portholes that are detailed with moving animations and tiki inspired decor, it does what a tiki bar is supposed to do, transport you from the desert wasteland that is Phoenix into a jungle far far away. The downside of the place is it is very small and it gets busy so you won't get the attention that you may at other tiki bars. But the drinks are world class. The drinks somehow are incredibly potent yet doesn't reek of alcohol, letting you know the bartenders use fresh ingredients and juices and quality liquor. Just absolutely amazed by the drink being strong enough to give you a buzz yet not wanting a chaser after a few sips.
