Bootlegger Tiki
Tiny tki bar tucked behind a coffeehouse with a shared patio. The bar is located in the same space as the legendary 1950s hot spot Don the Beachcomber and features a bamboo ceiling, velvet paintings of topless island gals, blowfish light fixtures, and more. But it really turns heads for its hand-crafted rum-filled cocktails including one of the best Mai Tais around. Stay or arrive late for their nightly happy hour at midnight.
