Humuhumu’s description

Lono is a large restaurant and bar in Hollywood, themed to Hollywood's yesteryear of tropical glamour, the pre-tiki era of nearby restaurants such as Bob Brook's Seven Seas

. The restaurant's target era is closer to the '30s and '40s than the '50s and '60s, and as such the look of the space is more tropical-lite than truly tiki. The drink menu is a mix of classic tiki drinks and modern takes on tiki, carefully crafted and presented. The food menu is mainly small plates of flavors from around the world, or on the other end of the food spectrum, you can reserve a complete "luau" experience.

Finally made it LONO Hollywood and boy did we have a great time. The bar is an escape from the action of Hollywood Boulevard, and is a mix of tropical, nautical, tiki, and adventure. Drinks are tiki and the food is Asian fusion.

We visited on a Wednesday at 6 pm, and the vibe was friendly but relaxed. Music was a wonderful mix of Exotica, Hawaiian, and Lounge. Decor is not a deep tiki theme (though there are tikis outside the entrance and in the display case) but has some Safari/Adventure elements along with modern tropical and many nautical pieces. Dark but not too dark inside too. I hear this place can be more “clubby” on the weekends.

We had several drinks and they were very good to great. The Mai Tai is the 44 recipe made with Rhum JM, Appleton Signature, Smith & Cross, Coruba, and Lemon Hart 151. Very bold and an excellent Mai Tai. I also had their signature drink Curse of LONO that has a mix of rums, juices, and spices. Served flaming, this was very good.

Mrs Mai Tai had the Nui Nui and a Banana Boo Loo. Both were very good and I liked the bold flavors of the Boo Loo, but didn’t overpower with the banana.

The food menu gave off an appetizers vibe but was surprisingly larger portioned than I expected. I really liked the Musubi Bowl, with teriyaki-glazed Spam. Lots of rice and other goodies, it was really filling. Like the drinks, the food isn’t cheap here but considering the location the prices are in line considering the quality.

Overall we really enjoyed LONO.

We love this place and visit frequently. It mixes old school Hollywood with tiki and exotica music, but... if you’re a tikiphile avoid Lono after 9pm, especially Fridays and Saturdays when the music changes to Tejano, hip-hop, 80’s and the patrons are loud and often drunk and couldn’t tell a Mai Tai from a Manhattan.

This is not your grandfathers tiki bar! I really liked this place. there were some things that weren't perfect but the most important things... the drinks and bar staff were EXCEPTIONAL! We had amazing service, and even though it was full of Hollywood 20 somethings ordering cosmos on a saturday night, they still took the time to create some great drinks. The food selection was great modern and hip, but way way too salty. I couldn't even finish several plates... mentioned it to the bartender and he said they had gotten complaints...
The atmosphere was that of a trendy hollywood club. Not my scene but the decor was really clean and sleek. More of an upscale Hawaiian themed restaurant then a tiki bar. Beautiful though.
