Bali Hai with The Goof on the roof
San Diego Tiki Bars:
Bali Hai, San Diego – Classic tiki restaurant with beautiful views of the bay and city beyond.
Cat Eye Club – This 60’s-style lounge offers a tiki-influenced cocktail menu — but the decor is not very tropical.
Outside of Trader Mort’s Liquor Store
Tiki Places in San Diego:
Trader Mort’s Liquor Store, San Diego – A good spot to stock up on rum on Shelter Island.
Freaky Boutiki, San Diego – This impressively decorated shop has a great selection of tiki goods, aloha shirts, jewelry, carvings and more, not to mention tiki mugs.
California Surf Museum, Oceanside – Part of the collection is a tiki that rival surf gangs stole back and forth from each other, but it’s not always on display.
Giant Moai at the bar at Mister Tiki Mai Tai Lounge
Gone But Not Forgotten:
Mister Tiki Mai Tai Lounge, San Diego – I miss this fun, colorful tiki bar filled with Bosko tikis — and its great happy hour.
