Legendary Cocktails


the god-father of tiki drinks

Created by Ernest Raymond Beaumont-Gantt, AKA: Don the Beachcomber at his bar in Hollywood, CA.

4 premium rums create this tiki delight: 2 Caribbean rums layered with our in-house love juice, then floated with Hanna Bay 151 and Maui Dark rum. A must have drink for tiki fanatics. Limit 2 per person.


our version of a crafted Mai Tai in a fresh pineapple

Our modern twist on the classics that everyone loves with 3 different kinds of rum (Mount Gay, Rhum Barbancourt, and Hanna Bay overproof rum) crafted with fresh juices served in a fresh pineapple.



supposedly created in 1944 after the QB Cooler

We recreated the fabled Mai Tai of our loved neighbor Trader Vic's using Appleton Jamaican rum and Clement rum just as he did in 1944 to create the authentic Trader Vic's Mai Tai.



supposedly created in 1937 by Don the Beachcomber

Named the Original Mai Tai by Don the Beachcomber, this legendary concoction was supposedly created at the Waikiki Restaurant in Hollywood, CA in 1937. It boasts Ron Matusalem Cuban rum, Myers' Plantation, Cointreau, with our fresh squeezed lime, grapefruit, and house-made falernum.


Q.B. COOLER - 1933

an Elvis Presley fav since 1950

While the moon is on the sea, the night is young. And so are we. Dreams come true with Cruzan rum, Green Mark vodka, fresh pineapple juice and blue caracao. The night is heavenly in Blue Hawaii.



opposite attracts in this tropical concoction

When the moon hung soft and low, catching stardust in the light. Two young hearts filled wtih fire lost in Ron Matusalem Cuban rum, Blue Chair spiced coconut rum, and strawberries. It’s the tender years.



search for your lost shaker of salt

Strummin’ the 6-string on the front porch swing. It’s a real beauty, a Mexican cutie with El Jimador tequila, mango, triple sec, and sweet ‘n sour. Wasted away again in Margaritaville.
