We recommend that you give everything on our menu a sample at least once. It would be a shame to think you’d settled on the perfect drink when the next one on the list might have satisfied you even better. And once you’ve been through the list once, remember that the effect of each of our specialty cocktails is magnified with properly paired with the right food choice.

For a spicy meal, try the Kaffir Lime Margarita. For a new and exciting take on the Pina Colada, try the Good Fortune which includes a blend of four different rums. Our cocktails are not simple beverages, they are evening entertainment works of art. There is such a large selection that you may leave a few untested on the menu when you go. But that’s okay, you’re always welcome to come back and try the rest.
