Humuhumu’s description

The Trade Winds Tropical Lounge has been in its current location since 1964; it had been located at 1 Aviles Street from 1945 until it was moved to unearth the ruins of an early hospital on the site.
The bar houses some lovely paintings and murals of wahines, and has a non-functional Witco fountain. No tropical drinks are offered; they have hard liquor, but this is more of a beer bar.

I've been going there for decades. I hear back in ye ole days, they used to make it thunder, rain and it was much more dramatic. PROs The drinks prices are so cheap for a tourist town. Staff is friendly. The actual wood carved bar is beautiful. On any given night you can run into, bikers, an Irish soccer team or a drag queen, might be all at the same night. lol Cons: so much smoking and no real tiki drinks. music is usually local and talented, but not tiki in anyway.

They do serve other drinks, the rum punch was pretty good and you can't beat the price, was a good hang and great service over all. Look on the board behind the bar for specials.

This place is basically a beer bar. They have liquor but no tiki mugs or tiki drink menu. They have live music. The decor is very tropical. St Augustine is a great town to visit and drink in. My advice is to start here to get a beer and catch some tunes then head across the Bridge of Lions and eat dinner at The Conch House. They have tikis galore and if you wait to eat in one of their sky pods then you have created a memory that you will treasure.
