    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.

    Get the hot buttered rum, drink it through the cinnamon stick. So delicious.

    Wow. A place to go for the rum pro's. Non-pro's will enjoy the amazing variety of cocktails made by the incredibly knowledgeable staff. Awesome decor

    Ask them for a checklist where you can check off all the drinks you've had.

    The Zombie is as good as the Parisian Dirty Dick's one.

    Probably the City's best cocktail bar. Try Billionaire Cocktail - and many more. Incredible!

    Great drinks - if you don't mind waiting 15-20 minutes to get one. Why does it have to be SO SLOW? EVERY. TIME.

    Smuggler’s Cove has all the trappings of Polynesian paradise: rum, skulls, & a babbling brook. It’s one of the few tiki bars that perfects the traditional formula while establishing its own style. Read more

    A volcano is probably an efficient allocation of funds but it's fun!

    It was crowded when we went on a Saturday evening, but the staff were sweet! It seems like a fun place for a chat or small party!

    Some of the best cocktails in the city in one of the more classy tiki bars in the city. The line is worth it for the puka punch.

    Come early to get a table. They are prime real estate and some drinks can only be ordered at a table.

    One of my favorite bars in America. Amazing tiki drinks that aren't overly sweet. The puka puka served in a huge goblet is always great. Perfect for a date or a group of friends.

    Ask one of the highly skilled, knowledgeable barmen to select an aged rum for an Old Fashioned. Though not on the menu, this simple, delicious tipple was one of our favorites of the evening.

    The Zombie, made with three different rums, falernum, absinthe, grapefruit, lime, grenadine, and cinnamon syrup, is one of the shining examples of how Smuggler's Cove does Tiki perfectly right. Read more
