Humuhumu’s description

Ken's Tiki Lounge is the home tiki bar of Ken and Gloria, in Lomita, California, near Los Angeles. It was created in 2004 in a converted garage in the couple's home. It was inspired by the very earliest days of tiki-themed restaurants, and the couple has sought to preserve that style as much as possible. The lounge contains a bar down one side, a hidden home theater setup, and extensive mug collections. It also contains some mirrored balls and disco lights in a nod to Kelbo's

Aside from the electrical wiring, all construction and decoration inside and out was done by Ken and Gloria. They entertain family and friends in the space, and it is their little hideaway at home. Fatutu, a Tiki tOny original tiki, sits atop the roof and welcomes visitors to "Ken's Tiki Lounge—the best little place no one ever heard of!"
