Balhi Ha'i is the home tiki bar of Critiki creator Humuhumu (that's me!). My original home tiki bar, The Humuhumu Room, closed when I moved away from Seattle in 2003. Balhi Ha'i made its debut in 2011.
Balhi Ha'i occupies half of the lower level of my home, roughly six times the size of the Humuhumu Room. The room includes a built-in wet bar (vintage circa 1968), a good amount of vintage rattan seating, and its own bathroom. Visitors pass through a dark jungle area, with nighttime wildlife sounds, before entering the main area, which plays an Exotica soundtrack.
The bar has its own logo, featured on the menu and custom zombie glassware. A menu of classic tiki drinks is served. When not in use for bar entertaining, a projector screen comes down and the space becomes a home theater.
