Smuggler’s Cove’s interior was inspired by several historic tiki bars & legendary San Francisco watering holes, with special emphasis on nautical décor, and provides a dramatic and inviting escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The look of Smuggler’s Cove was brought brilliantly to life by local designer Ignacio “Notch” Gonzales of Top Notch Kustomz whose work has been featured in the San Jose Mercury News.
