This tiki bar in the middle of Nob Hills has it all; a luau recommended by Anthony Bourdain that includes a roast pig, drinks served in pineapples, and more, this themed bar is definitely something to see.

Foursquare Tips

  • Don't jump in the pool or they will kick you out!
  • A genuine Tiki room/Polynesian restaurant at the Fairmont Hotel. Has a swimming pool turned bar & a rain/thunder show! Seen on Travel Channels The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.
  • So tacky, so tremendously special.
  • If it's your birthday, they'll let you wade in the pool, if you bring your suit!
  • You're going to feel like you're crashing a strange, elaborate wedding reception.
  • If you come here ironically you just don't get it.
  • Quite possibly the worst drinks I have ever had. Appalling service, super loud cover band playing on a boat(?!), and just a general tourist trap feeling.
  • Get to know the band. Make sure they know your name then threaten to cut the lead singer unless he plays the Golden Girls theme song.
  • Go to the Tonga Room and drink tropical drinks all night!
  • Even though the food sucks Big Time, USA the live cover band is pretty f'ing amazing. Well worth a visit. Just don't eat.
  • awesomely cheesy ambiance for a wonderful bday gathering... the band even sang happy birthday!
  • get the pineapple royale, it's the only drink served in a giant pineapple
  • Food = not that great, waiters = super grumpy (come on dude, you work in the amazing fairmont hotel), drinks are amazing. Expensive. I'd pass
  • You have to experience the Tonga Room at least once. So cheesy but so awesome. Best done as a late night stop after dinner or bars.
  • Get the pineapple!
  • Closed Mon and Tues. Who knew!
  • Cut the bastards throat, take over the boat, and play the Golden Girls theme song!
  • Skip this place. Go to trader vic's.
  • Get in good with the band and make sure they know your name; suggest they sing the Golden Girls theme song
  • The band plays on a boat. And they take requests. (they do a killer cover of "I wanna Dance With Somebody.")
