Humuhumu’s description

The Galley is Santa Monica's oldest bar and restaurant, and features decor from 1935's Mutiny On the Bounty (the production of that same movie also inspired the legendary Christian's Hut

Not a tiki bar per se, but apparently the oldest restaraunt in Santa Monica. My wife and I enjoyed sitting at the bar and chatting with the bartender. The chili was good. Not many original drinks, or a mug though unfortunately.

The Galley is certainly a nautical more than tiki location but if you are in the area it is not to be missed. It does feel like a bit of history with fair food and drink.
