Fun & Eclectic Tiki Bar

Fun & Eclectic Tiki Bar

Where Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards meet there is a tiny tiki bar straight out of time. Picture a long dark bar, tiki trinkets everywhere, many of which have been provided by their customers, blinking lights, a waterfall, bottles of booze and smoke-filled air. Turns out, if the establishment is owner-operated, customers can smoke. Now, why did I bring this up, well, about half-way through my second tiki cocktail I was transported back to the early 60s, as if I was in a tiki version of Mad Men. Very cool!!

This place gets busy quickly and is known to have a line at the door. There are only 12 bar stools and four tables of four. A father and son team behind the bar and unlike some other popular tiki bars these two gentlemen mix every single one of their 90+ cocktails to order. It was truly amazing to watch. The drinks were very tiki, all of the traditional ones as well as many of their own creations.

They have a group of regulars that have their own personal tikis hanging up on the wall, just waiting to be filled with some creative and tasty cocktails. Some of those loyal tiki regulars even have drinks named after them. That is pretty cool, especially from a place that has been around since 1961.

Can’t wait to go back, maybe we will see you there.
