Tiki cocktail at Japp's

For the past several years, Japp’s has transformed from a craft cocktail lounge into an island getaway on the first Wednesday of each month for Tiki Night, gaining a devoted following.

The bar is throwing a special celebration in honor of Tiki Night's fourth anniversary, complete small bites, themed cocktails and Longfellow's Mike Stankovich on the turntables.

"It’s the 4 year anniversary of Tiki Night at Japp’s!!! 4 years, 48 menus, and gallons of rum later.. Jeremy, Adam, Ashley, and Sandrina have a fantastic menu of new tiki offerings plus their favorite classics," the Facebook event reads.

Tiki Night is an homage to authentic Caribbean/Polynesian libations, where guests can expect complex and potent rum-based cocktails with a balance of sweet, sour, spice and a fruity or floral garnish.

“If you close your eyes and take a sip, it should taste like a witch doctor gave it to you,” according to Japp’s bartender Jeremy Harrison, the man in charge of coordinating the Over-the-Rhine bar’s monthly event, in a 2016 interview

The party kicks off at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5. 

Japp's, 1134 Main St., Over-the-Rhine.
