All too often, tiki drinks sacrifice flavor, sweetness, and quality in favor of kitsch. At this Belltown spot, Chris and Anu Elford buck that reputation like Captain Jack Sparrow commandeering a rival ship. While the place-mat-size drink menu covers a wild assortment of drinks in categories like tropical, classic tiki, and travel, the happy hour keeps it simple: From 4 to 7 p.m. each day, classic daiquiris, punch, and wine are each $8, and the barbecue duck sliders from chef Jeffrey Vance's kitchen are just $5. But your cheap drinks buy you entrance into the sprawling, nautical-themed space. Somewhere between the mid-century modern tables and chairs and the turquoise and orange stools at the bar, it evokes a summer afternoon on a patio in 1958 more than the typical plastic and pupu platter tiki bar: elegant but fun, both tasteful and tasty.
