Concrete Jungle Is Closing This Week, Will Become Icehouse


  • Linda Romero

In not so tiki af news, we're pouring out a little rum this morning. Concrete Jungle, the little tiki-themed bar that opened December 2014 is closing its doors.

Opened by Tapa Tapa truck owner and chef Rudolfo Martinez, Concrete Jungle served up rum-fueled punches and cocktails along with Caribbean grub. The bar grew popular on DJ nights, but Martinez says Concrete's last day is this Saturday, August 27. 

He's hoping to move the concept into the downtown area, but in the meantime Martinez will open an icehouse inside the South Presa space in the coming weeks. Edna's, named after his mother, will have an icehouse feel with "chingos of beer," and complete with pool tables, which will likely jibe with the neighborhood better than a tiki-themed cocktail bar. 

1628 S. Presa St., 6pm-2am through Saturday.
