If you've been paying attention to the local cocktail scene, then you've probably noticed an old-is-new trend that features hollowed-out coconuts, tiny umbrellas, and lots and lots of rum. Tiki cocktails are taking the Valley by storm, appearing on drink menus everywhere from north Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix to Chandler.
This weekend, Phoenix's tiki bar scene will expand by one with the opening of new cocktail bar Under Tow. The watering hole will be the first underground tiki bar in town and is hosting its grand opening on Sunday, August 14.
At the event, which runs from 4 to 8 p.m., guests will be able to order drinks from Under Tow's "exotic cocktail menu" — though the Facebook event page cautions the space is small, so be prepared for a bit of a wait.
Under Tow is the newest cocktail concept from Barter & Shake, the creative minds behind Scottsdale's Counter Intuitive. The bar is located underneath Sip Coffee & Beer Garage on 36th Street and Indian School Road, in the bay of the former auto garage.
