Tropics not. Hella fun, ya!.
Previous guy had it right. It's a Shack, but a fun one! Fun night out with out-of-towners --- heck even in-of-towners. Right across the street from the Red Lion Tavern. Get your grub on, then your drink on.
Great little Place.
It is fun when the entire bar starts screaming when certain drinks are ordered. The drinks can be a little pricey, but it is worth going there for 1 drink before going out elsewhere. Would reccomend to anyone to go for a drink and bring a date there between dinner and maybe the 4100.
A Tropical Drink Lover's Paradise. Possibly some of the best mixed drinks you'll ever have..
Went to this place for the first time over the weekend and it was awesome. I've always liked good drinks that are STRONG and this place delivers. The place is small and has regulars galore, so get there early if you plan on getting a seat. It's standing room only as it gets later, and there's a line outside Fridays and Saturdays. (Not sure about other nights). The drinks are not cheap, but they are worth the price! For once. There is not any food, except a tub of bar 'snax', and they only accept cash. The crowd inside is socialable and fun. The decor is great and theres a lot of things to look at. The bartenders are friendly and have tons of stories to share. Oh yeah, and also the bar is owner-operated so smoking here is allowed. That will probably turn off a lot of non-smokers, but as an ex-smoker I wasn't bothered in the least. I miss this place already and am looking forward to going again.
Fun LITTLE place in Silverlake.
Want something different, try try Tiki Ti. It's a very, very small Tiki bar near the intersection of Hollywood and Sunset Blvd. They havea wild assortment of drinks (no food) and some drinks require the audio participation of he crowd. It's a little strange at first but once you get into it it's fun chanting "torro torro" as the bartender pours rum.
People are allowed to smoke there which wasn't appealing to me but the atmosphere and the regular polite customers made up for it.
A Small Bar of Tiki Bliss.
It's not very big and it doesn't look like much from the outside but once you step inside, you are transported to a world of tiki. Be warned that since it is an owner operated business, they do allow people to smoke inside the bar but it's a small inconvenience to enjoy a strong mixed drink. The founder of this bar, Ray Buhen, was a "mixologist" from Hawaii that started this bar in the 60s. The area around it has changed and Ray is no longer with us but his son Mike and grandson Mike Jr. are the guys working the bar and they are doing Ray proud. The drinks to get are the Ray's Mistake and the Bayanihan. If you are up for a challenge, order the Blood-and-Sand and enjoy the Toro!
fun hawaiian atmosphere.
This little tiki shack is the cutest bar I've been to. Though it's small space can't really allow you to move around too much (they only let in a strict capacity of 50 people at a time). This father-son duo can really crank up the drinks, and they're all given funky names too~ They really go all out with decorating the place... they have hawaiian/beach paraphenelia covering every inch of the place! And the friendly, family-like vibe you get in this place is truly unique!
This bar is really fun. That's what it's all about - the bartenders are fun, the crowd is fun and the drinks are fun. Is a down and dirty fun time. I wouldn't come here if I were looking to feel "cool" or pick up, but if I'm trying to go out with the girls, get some strong drinks and laugh the night away - here's where I'll be.
