The Hatch: Sliders, Craft Beers and Tiki Cocktails

Sliders, Craft Beers and Tiki Cocktails

We recently visited a cool secret Speak Easy called the Blind Rabbit in Anaheim which inspired an idea I had for a Tower of Terror Bar at the Disneyland Resort.  You can see that blog below.

Anyway--after visiting the Blind Rabbit we heard that a new bar would be opening in Tustin by the same owner called The Hatch.
When I found out that it would be serving Sliders and Tiki drinks and that it would have Mod SHAG look it went to the top of our places to visit list.

Located at the back of this cool shopping and dining area called the Union Market in Tustin sits The Hatch.  
 The Hatch is a small little bar with SHAG artwork.

Here are their signature cocktails.

They also had a good selection of Craft Beers as well.

SHAG Wallpaper!!   Where do I get that?

Aside from the SHAG Wallpaper that place looks like a throwback to an old diner with some Mod style touches.

The Slider portions were a little small you only get two (where at many places you might get three for that price).   You couldn't argue with how good they tasted though.   I had the Rum Braised Slider with roasted garlic aioli, pineapple chutney, and cilantro --which was amazing.   It couldn't hold a candle to the other Slider which was Grilled Cheese Manchego, Apple and Honey.   
That one was too die for.

I enjoyed the Lama Nui Tiki cocktail. 
I love me some Rum drinks.

And they had version of a Mai Tai during happy hour.  
It wasn't a traditional Mai Tai but still tasted good.

The Hatch webpage can be found here.

Check out the rest of what the Union Market in Tustin has to offer. on their website.   We also stopped at the fun little Central Bar that sits in the middle of this cool little area.  The Union Market was a cool little area similiar to the OC Mix and Anaheim Packing District.
