Adrift draws on the rich his - tory of authentic tiki lounges and is located in Denver’s South Broadway Baker neighborhood, which is known for its eclectic mix of live music venues, art-house movie theaters, bars and res - taurants. Don’t worry, going to a tiki lounge in Colorado’s largest city doesn’t feel odd, it’s a breath of fresh air for groups of up to 30 seated in the Brando Room and 30 seated or 45 standing on the patio. The entire venue can host up to 120.

Serving island-style cock - tails and Polynesian-inspired bites, Adrift features an extensive collection of rums from all over the world and delivers a unique take on the traditional Mai Tai, frozen concoctions, shareable bowl cocktails and more. Food lovers will savor authentic Polynesian cuisine, whether it’s Kilauea poke, the locomoco style “Jaws” burger or a Hawaiian mix plate. Plus, the décor immediately puts guests in island mode, and all of Adrift’s tiki cocktails and dishes are presented with flair utilizing fresh flowers, dry ice and fire elements. adriftbar.com  

When guests walk into the cathedrallike lobby of the new Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe, they’re greeted with a gasp-inducing view of “Big Blue” right outside the soaring window wall at the Great Room’s far end. No road or buildings block the vaulted panorama; the only objects between glass and water are a strip of vibrant golf-course green and a few scattered pines on a west-facing shoreline serving up peachy sunset views.

 

Here are some options for smaller groups and quick getaways.
