If you’re one of those people who wears shorts or sandals the first day the temperature creeps over 65 degrees then we’re very different people. But whose to say that we can’t both enjoy a tropical drink at happy hour? I’ll wear my lightweight sweater and jeans, you’ll wear your t-shirt and shorts, and we’ll ponder about what life was like before the existence of those little toothpick cocktail umbrellas.
The tiki bar and rooftop terrace at Jack Rose Dining Saloon is BRAND NEW just in time for spring. It opens this Thursday and will be featuring drinks like the Coco Face with Hamilton Demerara Rum, Ancho Reyes, Almond-Coco Cream, Cinnamon-Chili Honey Syrup and Pineapple and the Tidal Wave with Tanqueray Gin, Blue Curacao, Guava Nectar and Lime. You probably want to know about the deals now. Get half off of all tiki bar cocktails and food every Thursday from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. along with half-priced bites, $2 off drafts and glasses of wine on the rooftop terrace.
Bar Charley has tiki cocktails on tap, babyyyy. You can enjoy one for the low price of $5 all night on Mondays and for $7.95 every other night of the week. Also available on Monday nights are $4 glasses of wine, $5 artichoke ciabattas, $6 burgers, and $6.95 mussels.
Archipelago’s tiki bar just opened in March so if you haven’t gone yet, you should check it out sometime. Cool? Their cocktails are on the pricier side (they range from $12 – $14) but seem to boast the bar’s large variety of rums. Also available for your snacking purposes are jerk chicken, meatball, and pulled pork sandwiches for about $6 – $11.
Dirty Martini at night on a weekend is a lot. But Dirty Martini for happy hour at their tiki bar is more fun and a significantly less stressful experience. Get $7 cocktails, $6 glasses of wine, $6 appetizers, and $3 draft beers from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The tiki and tropical cocktail selection at Farmers Fishers Bakers is v extensive. Order the Suffering Georgetowner (with botanist gin, high west, rendezvous rye, lime, ginger, bitters, and seltzer) and think about what the implications of its name are. Or if you want to keep the mood light try the Islay Swizzle or Bahama Mama. Cheers!
