Smuggler’s Cove












(pics swiped from Tiki Central)

A new rum bar is opening tonight (Tuesday Dec 8 2009) in San Francisco. I was lucky to be able to attend one of the limited ‘preview’ nights last Friday, and trust me, it is fantastic. There are 74 mostly rum-based cocktails, many of them revived classics like the Bombo and Calibogus, along with old favorites like the Fogcutter, Mai Tai, Daquiri, Ti Punch, etc etc.

There are also over 177 rums to sample. Yes. 177.

The decor is nautical themed, and a lot of fun! The only problem is the relatively small size, it seats only 49 people on three levels (the two bars are on the ground and basement level, the top level is a lounge with seating but no bar.) Sadly, it is not within walking distance of my berth, unlike Martin Cate’s former place Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Alameda.
