Bootlegger Tiki

Palm Springs speakeasy offering handcrafted cocktails and the best happy hour in town

Palm Springs tiki bar offering just the right amount of kitsch along with your handcrafted cocktails. Located in the original Don the Beachcomber restaurant in the Uptown Design District we welcome tiki lovers, locals and travelers alike. Happy hour twice daily!


Here at Bootlegger Tiki we stand for good old fashioned fun! We can't imagine anything better than quality time spent with friends over delicious tiki cocktails made with equal measure of  rum + fruit + love.  Located in the same space as the original Don the Beachcomber restaurant that opened in 1953, we are fortunate to inherit an incredible piece of Palm Springs history and want to uphold the tiki traditions that were originally built here - craft cocktails, good friends and a couple of giant tiki torches thrown in for good measure. 

Brought to you by the same team as Ernest Coffee, the fun begins at happy hour everyday, seven days a week. You could say these two spaces are attached at the hip...they share a custom built outdoor patio with amazing mountain views. Ernest Coffee opens every morning at 6am serving delicious Stumptown Coffee and a selection of beer and wine. And when Bootlegger Tiki opens at 4pm, the coffee shop simultaneously transitions to a wine bar. Choose something to share from the brand new savory & sweet, good-for-you snack menu. Then take your pick - classic tiki cocktails in the intimate back bar, or wine and beer at the front of the house. Want to mix it up? See what's happening on the patio. Stop by for a drink and let's continue to build upon the decades of tiki rum and fun that started right here in this spot all those years ago.
