The specialty cocktails menu at Tiki Underground is where the tiki influence really shines through, reports Malcolm X Abram. The cocktails are around $10, and “though I’ve never been a big fan of mai tais, with homemade simple syrup and lime juice, it was a nice mix of sweet, sour and booze.”

The bar also hosts live music. Fans of fancy tropical mixed drinks, fun but not obnoxious atmosphere and a solid menu (Big Kahuna Nachos are simple yet yummy), should find this tiki trip worth making.
