FAQ

Tiki Drinks… does that mean every drink is super sweet?

While some drinks can be sweet, we can guide your drink choice to wherever your palate craves, be it sweet, savory, sour or strong. You’ll find something to love in one of our 42 cocktails!

Do you take reservations?

Please see our reservations section for more information.

Where can we park?

Please use street parking on and behind Broadway where possible. If you are considering a sampling of our drinks menu, please be sure to bring a designated driver or consider a cab or public transit.

Can we bring the kids?

Our alcohol service license does not allow us to have anyone under the age of 21 on the premises.

Do I need ID to enter?

We strictly follow OLCC rules and Oregon law – if you appear under 26 you will be asked to present proof of age, which is limited to the following forms of identification:

  1. A valid U.S. state (includes District of Columbia) driver license with a photo

  2. A valid ID card issued by a U.S. state (includes District of Columbia) with photo, name, date of birth, & physical description

  3. A valid passport or passport ID card

  4. A valid U.S. military ID card

Foreign ID, including Canadian provincial drivers licenses, are not valid proof of age in Oregon.

Why doesn’t anybody answer the phone?

In order to best serve those occupying the space, we use an answering service while we are open. Please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

So much rum! What if I don’t like rum?

While we’d love to steer you towards all of the wonderful variants of our favorite spirit, we also stock an extensive selection of other spirits as well.

Do you have any beer on tap?

Yes, we offer 4 local taps - an IPA, an Amber, something seasonal and a hard cider, as well as tallboy cans.

Can I just get a Manhattan or Gin & Tonic?

While we focus our efforts into the tropical libations, all of our staff are fully trained in the fundamentals of bartending and classic drinks, and we do carry a wide selection of fresh juices, syrups and liqueurs for your enjoyment.

Why is last call at Midnight (1:00AM on Friday & Saturday) ?

Last call is at midnight (1:00AM on Friday/Saturday) so that our patrons get home safely and our staff can rest after their shifts.

Are the puffer fish lamps real?

Yes! I assure you they once upon a time were swimming freely, before dutifully sacrificing themselves to illuminate your drinking experience.

Is any gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian food available?

Yes! We have a number of dishes that are or can be made to exclude ingredients, and include a legend on our menu. Please take a look at our Small Plates Menu!

What is Falernum?

A syrup common to Tiki drinks, spiced with lime, ginger, clove, almond, and overproof rum.

What are the number ratings next to the drinks on the menu?

This is a scale of alcohol content for each drink, four being the highest, and one being a standard single-shot drink (but it's a relative scale - a four does not mean four shots) Since not all of these drinks taste as strong as they are, the numbers let you know what you are getting into. :)
