  • Strong fruity drinks (and more), a great jukebox, crab wontons, ambience for days and Will "The Thrill", the best doorman in town! You can't go wrong here. Dress in your vintage tiki finest.
  • Try the Makalani bowl they've created for their 5 year anniversary. Delicious and you get to keep the bowl!
  • Try the virgin sacrifice: the fire show is amazing!!
  • Don't miss the forbidden Island (a grog of lime, pineapple, spices and liqueurs, served in a souvenir "kapu" tiki mug) and the Chamborlada (a pina colada with a float of black raspberry Chambord).
  • Try the monkey pod!
  • it's like the tiki room in Disney Land, but for adults!
  • Suzanne Rocks!
  • Macadamia Nut Chi Chi is a must have!
  • Amazing tiki drinks, even many options for coconut allergic me! The outside patio is dog-friendly and available for private events before the bar opens to the public. Good service,great atmosphere!
  • Try a Jet Pilot. Knock you out delicious.
  • Somewhere pinned above the bar is a $20 bill with my name on it.
  • tiki drinks and spicy chicken bites
  • Love the monkeypod
  • Macadamia Chi-Chi is absolutely my favorite. The Virgin Sacrifice is strong and should not be paired with a Zombie, unless someone else is driving and will be helping you walk out.
  • Be sure to check out Otto's DJ night the first Wednesday of every month!
  • Alta California best way to finish a night of drinks.
  • Remember there's a parking lot in the back.
  • This shit is way overpriced.
  • I thought I was on the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland! This place is soooo much fun, the decor is a blast. Makes me feel like i'm finally on vacation in a nice tropical environment.
  • If you are done drinking, don't take up a whole booth just making out.
