Lots of fun, great drinks, great people, it’s a fun little place to cool off and chat. And the coffee next door is amazing.

This place sucks! We went there tonight to celebrate my husband's birthday and they would not let him in because his license had expired by one day! He is 54 and waiting to get his renewal in the mail. Law says your ID is good...More

Wanted to experience this place but couldn’t get in without showing ID. Obviously they have had issues previously and it is now zero tolerance.

I had a great time here. There aren't very many tiki bars around and this one is small, dark, and clean. Bartenders are great. I tried a handmade Mai Tai and it was great. Go for the Happy Hour. Good drinks and pupus.

I LOVED Bootlegger! I'd go back again and again. Such a fun place to get a cocktail. They are all extra boozy and extra delicious with fun glasses and decor.

Tasty and fun tiki drinks with great service. Go during happy hour or Mon-Wed when they offer drink specials.

Fantastic little spot in DT PSP. Great vibe in an intimate spot with just a few tables and a few seats at the bar. Happy hour is great and the drinks are always well-crafted and presented. Service is up and down but never awful. One...More

It's just a bar, but there is a restaurant -- a very casual place -- sort of attached to it, or next to it that appears to be related.
