Transporting guests to the tropics, boozy flavors of coconut, pineapple and passion fruit will fill ceramic Tiki mugs, while fresh shrimp and whiskey wings will come hot off the grill.


Jack Rose’s craft bartenders are combining fresh fruit juices, quality rums and even jalapeno-infused whiskey, in a special tropical menu of Tiki cocktails. These refreshing, boozy concoctions are all $13, and available for half-off at $6.50 during “Tiki Thursdays” happy hour:

The Tiki Bar will also offer a selection of refreshing canned and bottled summer brews for $6 ($5 during Tiki Thursdays happy hour), such as Boulevard Ginger Lemon Radler, Victory Summer Love, Devil’s Backbone Trail Angel, and Troegs Sunshine Pils.


Executive Chef Russell Jones is grilling up fresh island-inspired fare on the terrace’s wood-fired grill. Half-price on Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., menu items will include:

Pacific Shrimp Tacos with pickled cabbage & mango salsa ($13)

Flank Steak Tacos with charred pineapple, onion & cilantro ($13)

Launching on July 23 is Tiki Thursdays, a special Tiki Bar happy hour every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. where tropical cocktails and island-inspired fare are half-price. Cocktails which are usually $13 will be $6.50, and food that ranges from $6-$13 will be $3-$6.50. All canned beers will be $5.

  • I am so looking forward to the return of this; going on Thursdays for their happy hour couldn’t be beat- especially since good tiki drinks are hard to find.

    I am pretty bummed they shaved the happy hour from 10pm till 7:30pm, but I’m more disappointed in the smaller and less tiki-traditional drinks. Regardless, I didn’t think this was going to happen again, so yay!!

  • Nice idea, but the drinks seem unimpressive.
