Tiki-Ti is a Polynesian-themed tiki bar located on Sunset Boulevard in the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles.

An LA staple, it’s been around since 1961.

The place is a small, intimate bar with a laid-back vibe, and the bartenders are known for their heavy pours and specialty drinks like rum cocktails, mai tais, and Pina Coladas.

It also has a few draft beers on tap, including Kona Brewing Company’s Longboard Lager and Maui Brewing Company’s Bikini Blonde Ale.

I like to visit Tiki No, a popular spot for locals and tourists alike.

It’s a tiki bar in North Hollywood, close to Universal Studios Hollywood and Warner Bros. Studios, and has a laid-back vibe.

The bar has a wide selection of classic tiki drinks and modern creations, but they also have a small list of draft beers.

I always order a Scorpion Bowl, a blended drink with three kinds of rum and hints of lime and cinnamon.

LONO Hollywood is a tiki bar on Hollywood Boulevard in the heart of Los Angeles.

The bar has a laid-back, tropical vibe with craft cocktails and Polynesian cuisine.

The bar has a wide selection of classic tiki drinks, like Mai Tais and Navy Rum grogs.

I like to grab a Pearl Diver, an aged brew with Gardenia mix and fresh lime.

Or, you can try a Painkiller, a rum drink with pineapple, orange, and coconut cream.

Tonga Hut

I love to visit Tonga Hut, a lively tiki bar in North Hollywood.

They have a jukebox with tropical-themed tunes, lava rock fountains, and a menu with all your favorite classics, from Zombies to Blue Hawaiians.

Don’t miss the House Classics, like the Nutty Chi Chi, a vodka with macadamia nut flavors.

Or, go for a Reverb Crash, a San Diego-inspired drink with passion fruit and grapefruit.

You can also grab a non-tropical drink like a Negroni or Manhattan.

Purple Orchid

Purple Orchid in El Segundo is a great place to relax with a tropical drink and listen to live music.

Southwest of Los Angeles, it’s just off W Grand Avenue, near the beach and Holly Valley Park.

They have a variety of bands that play on the weekends, and the atmosphere is always fun and festive.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and can whip up drinks like a Banana Liqueur or a Flaming Volcano.

The Bamboo Club

Head to the southern part of the city in Long Beach and visit The Bamboo Club, one of my favorite tiki bars in Los Angeles.

It’s near the Museum of Latin Modern Art and is close to the coast.

The casual bar features Asian and Caribbean-inspired drinks and a full menu with burgers and vegan options, so there’s something for everyone in your group.

Consider going for brunch, when you can get fried eggs and Spam with a Mai Tai.

Kahuna Tiki

Phone: (818) 853-7447

Kahuna Tiki is a sushi bar-turned-tiki lounge in the Noho Arts District near Valley Village Park.

It has an old-school vibe and is family-friendly.

Stop by Kahuna Tiki and try my favorite drink, the Spiked Hawaiian Punch, with intense grenadine, citrus, and hints of grapefruit.

Or, you can go for a Kahuna Paradise, a fragrant beverage with a watermelon and basil infusion.

They also have a great sushi menu with tuna, smoked salmon, and halibut.

There’s no better way to end a long day of touring Los Angeles than an evening at the city’s tiki bars.

Find something for everyone, from laid-back Tiki-Ti to bustling Tonga Hut.
