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.

While this is yet another in the trend of small joints, the folks here have found a solution. They keep track of how many are inside, and when the seats are full, that's it. You get to wait.

Unlike False Idol over in Dan Diego, where they keep packing people in until there isn't room to have a long thought.

Thoroughly enjoyed the decorations. A nice break from the Same think place after place.

This will be a regular stop when we come through the area.

Tonight was my 2nd time at UnderTow, and it was even better than the last time I was here. The lightning is phenomenal! With the low ceilings, you really feel like you are in ship’s hull or at least what one would think an old ships hull would look like in pirate time. If you read their forward in their bar menu, you can see they have a little story they try to stick to via their portal video and occasional lightning and thunder theatrics, similar to Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. The Tropical Itch drink was our favorite of the night. Excellent balance of of sweet, sour and alcohol. Of all the tiki bars I have been to, this one is by far my favorite. The ambiance is excellent from the the lighting to the aromatics of the smoking clove and cinnamon drinks. Not many tiki bars can add aromatics to their bar descriptors! Plus, for us looking for souvenirs, they have plenty if swag with their logo from mugs to shirts to back scratchers! Once again, Undertow is a Must for those looking for an all encompassing tiki experience. Can’t wait for my next visit!

UPDATE! Undertow has revised hours and are now open daily. Drink menu has been revised, with the top 5 traditional and specialty mixes remaining. The new drinks continue the Undertow quality with incredible flavors. Complex, delicious and while not the least expensive, are the finest cocktails I have ever had. Bravo Undertow Staff! The ship sets sail to new waters!
