Commercial UnderTow Phoenix

Beach Bum

I was able to visit our local Tiki bar here in Phx the other night. UnderTow is relatively small, with seating for only about 40 guests. Don't let that influence your decision to try this bar out. The atmosphere is awesome! It is located in the "grease pit" of a previous oil change establishment. The decor is awesome, with thunderstorms taking place occasionally. The drinks are strong, but delicious and the staff when we visited were friendly and got our drinks in a reasonable amount of time. The bartenders are always fun to watch keeping pretty busy mixing cocktails. Reservations are highly recommended. The only downside is there is a 90 minute limit. (they want to allow other guests to visit I guess) Check them out if you get the chance.




I have also been here. One of the greats in Phoenix. My only complaint is the time limit. Of course if I stayed longer I would probably not be able to climb the stairs out of the place!
UnderTow has closed in the original location. They are moving to a new location right next door. They will announce opening soon. I can't wait!

Had a great time at Undertow in Phoenix last night with our tour guide @thetikiboss. I always say, if you can go with a local, do it. Thanks for coming out and showing us the ropes, Ross.

Such an immersive space inside, though we found the sound effects and music to be louder than they could be. But, the decor including some neat special effects really made up for it. Nautical, obviously, but still plenty of tikis.

The cocktails prepared by @ashley.elizabitch and @r_sic were outstanding, as was the service. The Mai Tai was quite excellent with a nutty flavor and balanced set of rums. We loved the other cocktails too.

It is always nice when the hype is met. Certainly was the case at Undertow.
