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.

One of my favorite bars in LA. The tiki drinks are incredible, the space is charming but small. This bar is all sorts of wonderful. The Ray's Mistake is their signature drink. I love the chi chi and the blue hawaii. CASH ONLY!

torro torro – This bar is really fun. That's what it's all about - the bartenders are fun, the crowd is fun and the drinks are fun. Is a down and dirty fun time. I wouldn't come here if I were looking to feel "cool" or pick up, but if I'm trying to go out with the girls, get some strong drinks and laugh the night away - here's where I'll be.

The bar that's kept the tiki spirit alive on the Eastside for four decades. – In Short
This little shack is only big enough to fit a few tables, a bar and a dozen barstools. But what it lacks in physical space it makes up for in menu size. (Yes, we're talking about the legendary list of 90 tropical libations, like the Blood and Sand, Shark's Tooth and Skip & Go Naked.) Sure, you'll hate that fact if you get there too late you'll be doomed to wait for people to leave, especially since folks rarely want to go anywhere else. But with drinks this wild, a crowd so chill and a bar so crammed full of tiki tschotkes like shellacked blowfish lamps and fluorescent fountain with water dripping from a skull onto Buddha's head, it's a kitschy paradise.

Best tropical drinks anywhere including the islands! – I have been going to the Tiki Ti since 1971. Would have gone sooner but it was illegal! Three generations of bartenders and unlimited good times. This family owned business is held sacred in the hearts of many, many patrons. Mike and Mike Jr. are the best tropical drink Dr.s anywhere. The regulars are like extended family. Everyone is made to feel welcome. Wish I still lived just down the street. If you don't have a good time here, you need professional help! The space is small and gets packed on most nights. Go early, go late and wait, but just go!

TORO! TORO! – There's a drink for everyone here. It's small, the music varies (not the same predictable stuff), and yes the drinks are pricey. But totally worth every penny. Each drink is a work of art. If you haven't been, what the hell are you waiting for?

Strong tasty drinks + tiny hole in the wall + FUN – Ok, do NOT drive from Redondo beach for this place, it's essentially a fun neighborhood place about the size of two cars. Beware of the schedule, the place used to open when the owner felt like it. This is a perfect addition to a hollywood pub crawl; the 4100 room and Red star around the corner (walking distance if needed). Drinks are cash only, strong, and taste great so beware. Beware, the place is tiny - but a great kickoff or ending place for one drink.

An LA Institution – To the people who didnt like the place, I have a few words don't go back you take up space needed by the true patrons. Father and son team that mix the best drinks in LA. Dont be afraid to try different drinks, especially Blood N Sand(yes it's pricey but worth it), two of these will have you crawling if you can't handle your alcohol very well. Always an eclectic crowd(young and old alike), no attitudes like other bars in LA. Get there early, the line gets long and be ready to wait a while(not much space inside). If you can leave your LA attitude outside the door and know the true meaning of Aloha, you'll enjoy this place that much more. Never seen any fights break out, the bouncer/door checker is usually Mike's mom and wife, they get a lot of respect from the regulars. Enjoy.

Very Cool – although the size and some of the cheesy decorations may throw you off at first, you'll come to love it in the course of one night. Maybe it's the strong drinks, that are so tantalizing, but every 15 minutes you'll find yourself looking around and saying, "I like this place". And by the end of the night, you'll wish you didn't give up your seat and you'll want to plan to go back.

Best bar in L.A. – You can't beat the drinks, or the service, or the decor. Simply the best place to go hang out with friends. Just make sure you have a designated driver - some of the cocktails will knock you on your ass.

undeserved reputation – brought out-of-town friends here and ended up feeling embarrassed. drinks are ridiculously expensive and made with liquor you can get at 7-11. i might be wrong, but i get the sense that positive reviews for this place are being written by insiders. what's the deal here?

An Eastside Classic! – Ok, now this place is probobally smaller than your living room BUT...the atmosphere is amazing, the drinks are awesome, and the people are friendly! The drinks are a bit pricey, but NONE of them are your average drink. All are special, delicious and very well served. Definately one of my favorites!
