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.

Wow, what a great place! AUTHENTIC classic cocktails and excellent modern tropical cocktails, great decor and vibe, outstanding drink selection, and super-friendly an efficient staff. This was our first time here but we will definitely make this "must stop" every time we are in Ventura (we live in Santa Barbara, about 30 miles north). We had lunch elsewhere, so I can't comment on the food but if it's half as good as the drinks, you will be pleased, I'm sure. Highly Recommended and so glad it's relatively close to us. Almost a "10" on my Tikiometer! Definitely stop here if you are on a Tiki Bar tour.

This was my second visit in the last year. We love the salmon king bun sandwich and can't seem to order anything else. Love the decor. Drinks are good as well. Their version of the Painkiller is strong but so drinkable. Sometimes the gift shop is open and sometimes not it seems.

The inside is small so if you want to sit indoors, try to go at a more off time to get a seat at the bar. Bartenders all seemed nice and knowledgeable.

Ventiki is AMAZING!! I could write forever on how amazing this place is!! It is a bit small, but, they make up for it in every way and then some. The food was delicious, and some very unique sushi rolls that already have me wanting to go back. Drinks were excellently crafted. Bartender Elvis was wonderful, made some fantastic drinks, came by to chat, helped take pictures, even with a full bar...super friendly guy. Server Heidi was really friendly also, super attentive, and also taking care of a full bar and lanai. The place was full in the afternoon on a Sunday, and I can see why. Great music, great atmosphere, amazing drinks, creative delicious food, great service....what more could you ask for!!
