Humuhumu’s description

Adrift is a modern-era tiki bar and restaurant. The primary focus is quality, classic tiki cocktails. The bar is covered in plenty of bamboo, the walls are lined with bamboo, and murals of elegant vintage-feel scenes of Polynesia are framed in bamboo, as well. Light comes from pufferfish lamps, glass floats, and a bit of fire for good measure. Carved tikis are found inside, and outside the building is flanked with metal tiki wall sconces and two large carved tikis.

Drinks are still good. No real tiki jam left at this point. Sad to see the owner nursing the bottom line and leaving the tiki spirt behind.

Just visited Adrift for the first time in March 2022. The atmosphere and decor were great. We ordered only classics - the Mai Tai, Zombie, and Jungle Bird. The drinks didn't taste bad but did not at all taste like how these classics are supposed to. For example, I never would have been able to identify the Mai Tai as a Mai Tai, even though the listed ingredients were the correct ingredients for that drink. It was a weird experience. The bar also uses normal cubed ice for these drinks when pebble or crushed ice should really be used. The food was really good, but again, the drinks were just odd.

Been many times and something is always a bit off about Adrift. Decor is great, and drinks are really good (although a little on the weak side). It's too many little things. For one it seems to focus a bit too much on the restaurant angle, which is fine, but kinda feel a little uncomfortable if I just want to get my rum on. Plus not enough bar seating. Also the music is usually wrong. Not completely bad like pop or rap or something, but not quite right. Usually 60s soul, or other genres that are from the right era but almost never hear exotica, lounge, or even surf. Also will say I just don't get the vibe the people working there are die hard tikiphiles. Still a solid choice but not great.
