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!
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.
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.
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
What a great atmosphere, i loved the kitschy decor. Amazing rum-based cocktails -pours are very generous, and very friendly staff. Great place for late night drinks.
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.
PAINKILLER AND PUPULE YUMMMM!
The Apple of Alcoholism.
very good drinks, but get there early and leave early unless you like the crowds...
Rum fanatic Martin Cate opened the new-wave tiki bar to spotlight the 400-odd rums he’s sourced from around the globe.
Zombie. Just drink it
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
Smuggler's Cove - Hayes Valley650 Gough St(at McAllister)Check it out
Sidewinder Fang is a beautifully balanced citrusy cocktail. Yum!
Three ounce painkiller.
Try the Norwegian Paralysis! Like the menu says, it's much better than it sounds.
Bring your ID; they card everybody religiously.
Drink the Fogcutter.
Try the off menu Kentucky blonde!
Light something on fire. A large, flammable drink, that is.
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.
Hot buttered Rum is the way to go!
Fantastic tiki bar. Get a cocktail with maraschino cherries, they have amazing gourmet ones that you will not believe.
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.
Best hot buttered rum in the city :P
Amazing rum/tiki drinks. Go early or on a weeknight—otherwise wait in line like you're trying to get into a club in LA outside.
If you're Australian, get the Aku Aku. It's a Pine Lime Splice. It's a fucking PINE LIME SPLICE! I'm drunk.
The Corn & Oil is a simple rum cocktail done incredibly right. This entire place is heaven for rum drinkers, pirates (of the nautical kind) and alcoholic misanthropes.
The drinks here are delicious! Go early before the line starts to form outside.
Go on... Be a pirate. I bet Dave McClure would go nuts in here
Rum. Rum? RUM! rum. RUUUUUM!! Rrrrrum. Jesus Christ I'm drunk.
