Tiburon Tommie's was an oddity, a somewhat grand place existing under-the-radar, during the Great Tiki Drought of the 1980s & '90s. It's not clear when it opened, but it closed by the late '90s or early '00s.
Tiburon Tommie's was initially called "Tiburon Tommie's Pier 41" when it was opened by Tommie Cox and Johnnie Won (Won was a former Trader Vic's employee). In later years, it was taken over by its restaurant manager, and renamed "Tiburon Tommie's Mai Tai." The building was large, and situated on the water on historic Main St. in Tiburon, across the bay from San Francisco. It's upper level was the "Maori Sky Room," used in later years only for storage.
When it went out of business, many of its items were reportedly found in a dumpster, and then sold at auction. Many members of the then-burgeoning San Francisco tiki scene were able to purchase items from the decor. In the early '00s, the building was torn down, and now condos are being built on the spot.
