  • SAN FRANCISCO - Visit to the Tonga Room

    Our "lovely day" in Fog City continues with a stroll around North Beach/ Chinatown, then a cable car up to the Fairmont for a MaiTai-soaked visit to the Tonga Room! Frivolity at a private party in Alamo Square rounds out the festivities. The question is do you have your dancing shoes on?

And then there is the Tonga Hut! The Tonga Hut is located at 12808 Victory Boulevard in North Hollywood, CA. What makes this place so fantastic is the fact that it is the oldest surviving Tiki bar in the LA area. Two brothers founded this joint in 1958 after they were inspired by a trip to Tonga. When it opened, the Tonga Hut joined hundreds of other Tiki bars and restaurants making their appearance across the country. But this one is different in two respects. First, it opened in what would have been the vortex of the surfing and Tiki culture in...

When it opened, the Tonga Hut joined hundreds of other Tiki bars and restaurants making their appearance across the country. But this one is different in two respects. First, it opened in what would have been the vortex of the surfing and Tiki culture in the late 1950's. And second, because it's just about the only one that's survived so long. As we found, it has a loyal and extensive following. In fact when we announced that we'd just made the video of it, one of our Twitter followers remarked "COOL! It still exists?" The Tonga is co-owned and was lovingly restored by Amy Boylan and Jeremy Fleener. Fleener, guitarist for SX-10 (and formerly for Cyprus Hill) fell in love with the Tonga Hut the first time he visited it back in the 90's. He finally bought it in late 2005 and together with Amy has spent just about every waking moment polishing it up and turning it back into its previous self. And they're doing it right. The decor is some of the best understated Tikis we've seen, the drinks are heavy on the alcohol, the people are fun and the place is simply amazing. Put the Tonga Hut on your short list!
