Great place to get a delicious cocktail, especially if you love rum. Go early it's a small bar and will fill up fast. Worth the wait. Try a El Draque or Smugglers Cove signature drink in a Rum Barrel.
Bet you never thought a crazy kitschy den of all things tiki could actually serve high-fructose-corn-syrup-free, all-natural drinks. This one can, and the cocktails hold up to the best in town.
Navy Grog is strong... can you handle it?
With a staggering assortment of over 200 rums on hand (including Smuggler’s exclusive, handcrafted variety, distilled in the East Bay), you're bound to find one (or three) you love.

Quit crying and complaining and drink damn it!
Get the punchcard and collect all the drinks!
kona cocktail, 3 dots and a dash, and a damn fine dark and stormy. sitting on the main floor at the bar makes for good ppl watching. go up or downstairs for more lounge vibe
Get the Puka Punch. It's on 7x7's Top 100 list for 2011.
I'm a pirate argh! The bartender lights the rum on fire, then immediately sprinkles a generous dash of cinnamon on top... That's the one you wanna order. Also, you can ask for the Painkiller #5.
PAINKILLER AND PUPULE YUMMMM!
very good drinks, but get there early and leave early unless you like the crowds...
The Apple of Alcoholism.
Every drink here is good. It is literally what u wish you were served every other time you have ordered a tropical drink elsewhere in your life.
A haven for rum lovers; be sure to chat up the bartender if you're at all interested in tiki history. These guys know their stuff.
Sidewinder Fang is a beautifully balanced citrusy cocktail. Yum!
Three ounce painkiller.
Zombie. Just drink it
Smuggler's Cove - Hayes Valley650 Gough St(at McAllister)Check it out
friggin amazing pirate bar! i love sitting at the downstairs bar and chattin it up with the bartender. it's a lot more mellow. Buttered rum tastes like french toast mmMMmm
Try the Batida
Rum fanatic Martin Cate opened the new-wave tiki bar to spotlight the 400-odd rums he’s sourced from around the globe.
Bring your ID; they card everybody religiously.
Try the Norwegian Paralysis! Like the menu says, it's much better than it sounds.
Drink the Fogcutter.
Try the off menu Kentucky blonde!
The atmosphere is outta this world. Its like pirates of the caribbean. Get The Pain Killer, Uhmazing Drink.
While it's cold outside, end your night with a Hot Buttered Rum, great way to be nice and warm as you head back to transit.
Hot buttered Rum is the way to go!
If you have a big group, ask for The Kilauea – it’s a ‘secret’ community drink. With a full fifth of rum, it’s no wonder Smuggler’s says this thing can serve 10 people. Of course, for $100, it better!
First time? Try a rum barrel and/or puca punch
If you are a fan of Rum, park it here for the evening and enjoy!
Drinks you'll love: sidewinder's fang, chi chi pache, corn and oil, hot buttered rum, smugglers rum barrel.
Pain killer #4 and a scorpion bowl ... and you're done.
Aku Aku & Demerara dry float are my personal favorites. Also the ladies bathroom smells like sweet tarts. Weird but true .
Fantastic tiki bar. Get a cocktail with maraschino cherries, they have amazing gourmet ones that you will not believe.
get a Painkiller #5, it's on the secret menu
Great drinks but rudest bartender ever
Martin & Christine are amazing. I need another dark and stormy. sTAT
The drinks never fail to hit their mark, whether Cate's tributes to colonial-era rum love or the tiki classics that are honed to perfection. Also, there's an indoor waterfall.
If you haven't tasted rum the way you would try scotch or wine, this is the place to lean and explore.
Try the The Twenty Seventy Swizzle - Yummmmmmm (via Foodspotting)
Best hot buttered rum in the city :P
Rum. Rum? RUM! rum. RUUUUUM!! Rrrrrum. Jesus Christ I'm drunk.
