Rum selection is wide and their cocktail concoctions are memorable. Ambience is cheeky but works - Tiki concept transports you to visions of islands and pirates and coconut trees.

You would never know from the outside that you were stepping into a dark pirate's hideaway!! I love rum anyway and I had two of the BEST rum cocktails I have ever had in my life. Sorry, I can't remember their names! LOL

First the bar is very inconspicuous from the front so beware not to pass it by. Inside it's great with a pirate theme! Cocktails were delicious and the bar staff were great at taking the time to find out what tastes you like in order...More

Awesome decor and amazing drinks! Hard to find because it has an unassuming entrance, but worth the search. The basement level is a great place to chill!

You really do feel like you've been transported back to a time when pirates roamed the seas! And the drink menu, which I believe is at least ten pages long, has old favorites as well as new creations.

Cool place to visit. No big sign on the door, however, much worth the experience. Rum drinks were very good. Visited with my son and his girlfriend. Highly recommended just for the ambieance and novelty of the bar.

The Tiki Bar has an excellent selection of rum flights and cocktails. The crowds build up on weekends. The staff is really fun and professional. There's no tv or jukebox. There's music played. The kind of music from Sirius #69. Great place to drink in...More

It's already crowded enough! Killer rum punches and giant rum bowls to share with friends. The decor, the hideaway location, the drinks. This place is so cool.

Dark and inviting, just like a cove. Many different drinks to choose from carefully crafted. People are friendly everyone enjoying the experience. No food is served.

Very purposefully hidden, the moment you find it, it's like you stepped into another dimension. The drink list fits their Tiki mentallity, noticing many drinks on the menu native to the Virgin Islands where I lived for a few years. Awesome atmosphere based on the...More

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy

yes there is a parking structure nearby on Gough & Grove. It's called the Performing Arts Garage. It's owned by the City so the rates are reasonable

This is a bar, not a hotel. Perhaps you have the wrong place?
