    Great drinks and awesome decor and atmosphere. Unfortunately gets REALLY loud and crowded on weekend nights. Your throats will hurt trying to talk to you friends.

    Don't love super sweet, tropical drinks. But the atmosphere is cool.

    Well made cocktails but no table service. Cramped, dark bar = super cool? Drinks are good but super sweet and take forever to make. Feels like a spot to have round and the bounce to the next spot.

    Walking in is like walking onto a movie set. And the drinks, while tiki and tropical, aren’t those sugary sweet hangover-in-the-making concoctions you get at so many other bars with a similar theme. Read more

    All drinks are delicious and there is one hot toddy that's good for when it's raining. Great vibes and decor

    Great tikki drinks, but wasn't positively surprised with their Mai Tai. Pro tip: For some reason I have found that the bartenders down stairs are makes better drinks.

    Awesome Tiki bar that doesn't serve excessively sugary drinks. Highly recommend the Volcano if you're looking to share between friends or the Jet Pilot if you're drinking for one

    Ambiance is what's good! Place has a great concept, but service is very slow due to their success. Bartender 'handler' takes your order, but you don't realize you are 10 or more in line for drink.

    It's a good idea to limit yourself to no more than two Puka Punches.

    Up on the wall. To your left. See Dom and Lauren's names on that plaque? Bow down to their rum knowledge.

    Tikis are no longer tacky so make your way to this contemporary Tiki temple that's been one of SF's most decorated bars for some time now. Read more

    Most people don't know what a Batida is, and most skip to the bowls and call it good (and they are!), but even if you only do it once, treat yo'self to a Batida. No one does'em better than Smugglers.
