A modern day tiki kingdom, Smuggler’s Cove has all the trappings of Polynesian paradise: a babbling brook, cocktails in skulls and rum, lots of rum. Martin Cate’s tropical paradise is one of the few contemporary tiki joints that perfect the traditional formula while establishing its own style within the genre. Ask one of the bartenders to show you around the massive rum selection, but beware: you’ll probably leave the bar swaying once you go down that rabbit hole.
