Humuhumu’s description

UnderTow opened in August 2016, in the lower level of Sip Coffee & Beer Garage. The interior was designed by Danny "Tiki Diablo" Gallardo.

This hidden, subterranean grotto is very small & very marvelous! Their freshly crafted, exotic cocktails are top-notch and a real treat to savor. Classic tiki done right, through & through. Fun to look out the (video) portholes while you sip (shades of Trader Sam's).

Neither of us ordered the Smoking Cannon, but someone did, and it made the entire space fill with a wonderful fragrance of the oriental spice trade--fitting given the backstory presented on the menu. My girlfriend ordered the Smuggled Goods and raved (I tried it and understand why). I had a Zombie and it was spot-on according to my taste buds.

We went early on a Sunday afternoon and had the place to ourselves for a minute (even got to chat with one of the owners, Jason Asher), but it fills up quickly...so book ahead. Hard to say what the experience would have been like if they were operating full tilt, but the staff seems shipshape. My only complaint is the beautiful classic exotica music was a little too loud for such a small space.

If you're a tikiphile, tiki curious, or just want to experience some amazing freakin' drinks, you should hove to the Undertow! This must be a fantastic retreat in the heat of the Phoenix summer too.

Very nice Tiki bar with a nautical theme. Had the Zombie,
was special! Impressive drink selection and the bartenders
were outstanding. Would have to rate as a top notch tiki
bar and would highly recommend.
