Experience an island getaway without leaving the city over delicious dishes and cocktails with a tropical twist at The Toasted Coconut in Montrose.

Located in the heart of Montrose on Richmond Avenue, folks will find classic tiki drinks aplenty as well as many new concoctions that pair tropical fruits with lighter spirits.

Opened in 2019 by husband and wife team Martin and Sara Stayer of Nobie’s Restaurant fame, this tropical beach outpost in Montrose has been churning out innovative cocktails from award-winning bar director Sarah Troxell and amazing bar bites from chef de cuisine Ben Ruiz since flinging open their doors to the tiki-loving masses.

Say aloha and stay awhile while enjoying low-ABV libations including the unforgettable Vamos a la Playa which comes served up with mezcal, Mexican rum, pineapple shrub, and lime; or the unique and savory Sandy Banana that’s made with rye whiskey, peanut, banana, and citrus; or the namesake Toasted Coconut which comes frozen with aged rum, toasted coconut, and citrus.

Don’t forget about the food, though. If you work up an appetite sipping the night away, try bites like coconut shrimp skewers, mapo tofu tater tots, Thai crispy rice and napa salad, or masa dumplings with salsa verde and a fried egg.
