The Terrace // Chicago
After a recent expansion, the 16th-floor Terrace at the Trump is taking on a Polynesian-chic theme—the first in Chicago—with Chef Brunacci’s menu, which includes lavish seafood platters and a rum-soaked cocktail list.

Smuggler’s Cove // San Francisco
Smuggler's Cove is like Pirates of the Caribbean for adults—and was recently named best new cocktail bar by Bon Appétit. Request the Top Notch Volcano, a sweet pineapple punch made with private reserve rum.

Psycho Suzi’s // Minneapolis
Whether you want loud or low-key, Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge administers a little of both. Sip on a rum-spiked concoction on the patio or come on Friday and belly up to one of the themed bars.

Mahiki // London
Once you get through the sometimes long queues at this wicker-laden cocktail bar, order up a Coconut Grenade and keep an eye out for Prince Harry. Feeling brave? Opt for the Krakatoa, a communal punch made for four.

Riff Raff’s // New York City
The latest on the tiki scene, Riff Raff’s attracts a well-heeled (and small, as it only seats 72) crowd who soak up the tropical decor and punch bowl-sized cocktails (which, of course, are meant for sharing).
