Smuggler's Cove

Map & Directions 650 Gough
San Francisco, CA 94102
  • Daily 5pm-2am


SF Weekly's Description

You don't need a treasure map to get to Smuggler's Cove, but you might feel like you're in The Goonies or Pirates of the Caribbean once you arrive: this Hayes Valley rum emporium is decorated with enough insta-kitsch pirate style to make you wonder if Captain Jack Sparrow were the interior designer. The specialty cocktail menu comes in leather-bound book form and the bar boasts a selection of over 200 rums, so it would take many return voyages to try them all; with specialty drink prices starting around $10, however, you'll need to bring a few extra gold doubloons as well. And even with its upper mezzanine level and a basement cave, Smuggler's Cove fills up fast, so be prepared to cut through crowds - a cutlass might come in handy on those cramped, steamy weekend nights, but allow a frosty, sweet tropical drink to calm your overheated buccaneer spirit instead.

    SF Weekly’s Best Of 2011 Winner – Editorial Pick – BEST FLAMING DRINKThe Top-Notch Volcano blends pineapple, lime, & passionfruit juices with maraschino plus a private reserve rum …

  • Jackie W. on 02/11/10

    Great place to get a delicious cocktail, especially if you love rum. Go early it's a small bar and will fill up fast. Worth the wait. Try a El Draque or Smugglers Cove signature drink in a Rum Barrel.

  • The Bold Italic on 05/31/11

    For a taste of true Hawaii, get the Kona Cocktail, made with pineapple, passion fruit, dark Jamaican rum, lime, & honey.

    Bet you never thought a crazy kitschy den of all things tiki could actually serve high-fructose-corn-syrup-free, all-natural drinks. This one can, and the cocktails hold up to the best in town.

    Navy Grog is strong... can you handle it?
