Diamond Reef is a tiki bar, but it isn’t in-your-face about it. Sure, there’s some tropical wallpaper, but the cocktail list has more than just rum drinks on it. If you want something with scotch, try the Penichillin. (It’s a slushy drink with honey and ginger.) This bar feels like a great neighborhood spot, and it’s a good place to meet up with a bunch of friends. Depending on how late you get there, you might not get seats (the tables go quickly), but there’s plenty of standing room as well as an outdoor patio.
