Humuhumu’s description

The Conga Lounge, situated above Cafe Rustica, was a small oasis. The cozy space was decorated with a variety of tropical trappings, but not exclusively Polynesian Pop. Co-owned by the same brothers who own Forbidden Island
Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge

Bar

in Alameda, this was where they first cut their tiki bar teeth. The soundtrack included Exotica, and there was a small menu of food available. The Conga Lounge was also available for private party rentals.
Conga Lounge (and Cafe Rustica) closed at the end of February 2015.

We visited the Conga Lounge on Saturday Feb 20, 2010 for the first time and were blown away. Tiki is alive and well in the East Bay! It surpassed our expectations; great food, great service, great drink and it definately had the right vibe. Jordan and the crew took good care of us all night and we will be sure to make it a regular stop in our Tiki Bar rotation. We are very fortunate to have such high quality establishments like this in the Bay Area. Lucky us!!!!
