Humuhumu’s description

The Upstairs Bar is a tiki-themed hideaway, above The Franklin Bar, which is a speakeasy-style craft cocktail bar. The walls are lined with lauhala matting and thatch, with private booth seating and a bar. There are a few tiki masks on the walls. The menu is a mix of classic tiki drinks and newer creations, served in the craft cocktail style.

True! This sole representation of an active Tiki bar has been changed and is no longer a Tiki bar. The downstairs Franklin Mortgage and Investment Company remains an excellent speakeasy with the occasional Polynesian beverage.
TikiBird224 is a semi-regular at The Upstairs Bar.

Bad news: As of July 2019, this bar changed its menu and decor and is now a tequila and mezcal bar.

Unfortunately due to people stealing mugs, and killing their overhead, this place will be closing soon :(
Sad that some people can’t act like adults and have killed someone’s dream and business.
