Humuhumu’s description

VenTiki opened in July 2013. Great care and attention have been paid to the history of Polynesian Pop at VenTiki, particularly with the tropical drinks. It is full of modern-style bamboo touches and chunky resin lamps. There is an outdoor patio area. The logo design was created by local artist Tiki tOny. VenTiki also has a gift shop, selling a mix of vintage and modern Polynesian Pop items. In 2016, a storm blew a tree over onto the patio; its fall was stopped by a carved tiki, saving some patrons who would have been struck.

An excellent tiki bar with a great variety of drinks and made with care with good ingredients. Also proper tiki decor and great bartenders who put on a good show. Definitely a place to visit if you are in Ventura.

VenTiki looks like a fun and friendly place. The indoor and outdoor parts of the place are wonderfully tiki-ed out. The drinks are tasty and--gasp!--they have souvenir signature mugs (as well as an amazing gift shop right next door). The trouble with my visit is that the place is just too popular. I went on a Monday night and it was jam-packed. I felt more like an outsider than part of the in crowd. Oh well. You can read about my experience in my blog (complete with photos and stories about other tiki haunts in the vicinity) here:

While I liked the aesthetic of VenTiki, I'll have to save my rating for another visit. I sincerely hope I get back to that little thatched tiki shack someday.
