Six bar stools.
And a plethora of amazing Tiki cocktails!
This is Bootlegger Tiki and if you’re in Palm Springs, you need stop by…
I tend to dig the smaller, more intimate Tiki bars. Bootlegger Tiki’s décor is simple, but effective.
All the walls are covered in bamboo matting and the room is very dark. You will need a couple seconds for your eyes to adjust!
If you’re lucky, this gentleman will be behind the bar…
His name is Chad Austin and he is the man who came up with most of the original Tiki cocktails on the menu. This Tiki drink menu is updated constantly, it’s up to Vol. 6 as I type this.
If there was one drink to order at Bootlegger Tiki, it would be the Pod Thai…
A key component of this drink is basil, so it’s good for you! I don’t know how healthy the drink is, but damn it’s tasty!
This drink may or may not be on the menu, but ask for it anyway. It’s called a Demerara Dry Float…
The best way to describe this drink is by asking a question: “Do you like SweeTarts?” If you answered yes, then you’ll love this drink!
And it comes with a shot of “Danger.”
Since Bootlegger Tiki is small, I recommend going as early as possible. Things get crazier as the night progresses. But if you go early, the vibe is really chill and you get to hang out with cool people like Angelina and Antonio…
They were both enjoying a Pod Thai and hopefully you can enjoy one as well.
