Behind the non-descript exterior on thoroughfare Gough Street, lies this piratey tiki bar of Disneyland proportions, that also happens to be one of the world’s best bars. The space is transformed into a vintage pirate ship a la “Pirates of the Caribbean,” complete with a roped off balcony area that resembles a ship’s crow’s nest. Exotic Caribbean cocktails, prohibition-era Havana libations, and more then 400 rare rums ensure you’ll taste something you’ve never had before. And with its fair share of flaming cocktails and punch bowls, the cocktails are serious, but the atmosphere is not. The space is small so expect a line on Friday and Saturday nights.
