Drinks were great. Did not have food so cannot comment. The three star rating comes from the terrible music which got louder as the night went on and night clubby. And annoying. The interior of the tiki bar was lovely though

It was Pride weekend and so the party mood was upon us. I really like this place and maybe after a few more visits I might rate Adrift higher, but based on just this one time, it’s a fun place and our waitress was lovely and attentive.

The food was about a c-. The noise level was very high. We could hardly hear each other. It took forever to get our drinks. They came out after our food. They didnt charge us for our drink thankfully.

If you’re visiting Denver then this is the pace to go. The bar is tiki themed and the servers are in Hawaiian shirts which is so cool. The volcano fries are a MUST. They’re soooo delicious. There’s a shareable cocktail which is literally a glass bowl and the server sets it on fire and everything is so cool and tastes really good

Loved the drinks, the food was not what I expected but it was still good! Our waiter was fantastic, super friendly and I think he could tell we were all just exhausted after a long day. Will definitely be returning soon.

A lot of hype and a lot left to be desired. We made reservations and requested to sit outside. Apparently they were full when we arrived, although the tables were empty. I mentioned something to the host and he stated that they were holding them for call aheads that were en route....45 mins later they arrived. I guess call aheads rank ahead of reservations these days. Food was just okay. Edamame hummus was bland and flavorless, poke was over sauces and mostly veggies (not much salmon), pork and ribs were mediocre/bland (pork was roasted and flash fried and greasy) and the Black Pearl punch bowl was not good. Tasted like black licorice and was recommended by the waitress. Apparently people like black licorice? Last but not least they don’t take AMEX, which just topped it all off as a very lackluster experience. I would go back for a drink, but not for dinner.

One of my favorite bars to visit in Denver. The drinks are refreshing and boozy and the happy hour prices are unbelievable. For food—I recommend the salmon poke bowl, citrus salad, and lettuce wraps. I’m sure all the other food is great but this is what I’ve had and I can’t get enough.

We had a tkirific time at the adrift! We enjoyed the Pupu platter and had several well mixed cocktails.
TK was the hospitality master and treated us to some some tasty rum shots for our 30th and entertained everyone with a spectacular fire show with his fellow bar keeps. We will be back!!!

This was a wonderful authentic Polynesian experience. The food was very good and a good value, very different. The ambiance was delightfully "island". The service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry. Yes I recommend it and we will take family and friends there for unique food and experience. Be sure you have a reservation.

Drinks took forever. Our server made an excuse and stated they were short staffed. It took 30 minutes for us to get our first round. The host told us that we had to be out by 8:30. I’ve never heard of a restaurant giving you a time limit.
