The Tiki Ti in Silver Lake has been family owned for 3 generations since 1961. Mike, the owner, pours behind the bar, while his sons tend bar or manage the door. Don't be fooled by the tropical drinks - they are STRONG, especially the Uga Booga and the Zombie. Also, you're allowed to smoke in the bar, which gives the Tiki Ti an old school Hollywood vibe.
Great tropical drinks and everybody is super nice. Ray's Mistake is the best drink, EVER.
A place that actually serves good tasting drinks that will also get you a good buzz. Usually you have to pick one. Part of the fun here is standing room only one Friday and Saturday night, great for mingling.
Always crowded, always fun. Cherished LA fruity, tropical drink hole. Fun place for a first date, IF you can get a seat.
If you want strong tropical drinks, this is your place. It's a little shack and gets very crowded at busy bar times, so try to avoid the rush and come early. Ray's Mistake is a classic to be tried, also watch out for the Stealth and the Ooga Booga and Blood And Sand. One or two cocktails is plenty here.
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.
Tiki Ti has been the right choice for the huamn beings like us.
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.
absinthe? – I know this is supposed to be a review...but I heard a lot about this place and was wondering if they served absinthe in their mixed cocktais...can anyone let me know?
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.
Authentic – Excellent decor, excellent drinks, great atmosphere and you can smoke. It's a bit small so go early.
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.
Give it a shot.
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!
