Humuhumu’s description

Devil's Reef is a fully-themed tiki bar in the Triangle/St. Helens neighborhood of Tacoma, from the owners of nearby Tacoma Cabana

, Jason Alexander and Robyn Murphy. Tacoma Cabana was much-celebrated, and Devil's Reef is the next-generation evolution, where Alexander and Murphy are able to lean even deeper into their strengths in creating a great environment for enjoying excellent tropical beverages. An extensive rum list and tropical drink menu is offered. The decor plays with the darker side of tiki, combining the couple's affection for both Polynesian Pop and H.P. Lovecraft. Devil's Reef opened on January 19, 2018. Tacoma Cabana was closed in September of that year, so that Alexander and Murphy could focus their whole efforts on Devil's Reef.

Now hereís a place where all the elements come together. Devilís Reef has been open for a good while now and compared to my visit a year ago theyíve upped their game.

The cocktail menu is large and Jason Alexanderís cocktails are all on point. One thing I tried this time was the food menu, and I really enjoyed my pork bowl. Ray ordered a fruit and cheese platter that would be great for sharing. The food menu is larger and a bit more varied than my visit a year ago.

They also have the second floor room open during busy nights (lower floor was just about full on Friday when we departed around 10:30). The decor on the second floor looks great and is perhaps an even nicer space to enjoy the traditional Exotica music that plays constantly at the Devilís Reef.

Love this place 💓 Question? Can I send a tip to the bar through venmo? We really had such an amazing time and just wanted to check and see if I can send a tip to the staff? Great memories were had.
