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.

How to find it

VenTiki is at the corner of E Main St and Fir St.

Parking

An underappreciated gem. One day an artisanal food truck crashed into a divey tiki bar: they decided to shack up and the results are wonderful. Currently serving the best food in the tikiverse. I'm amazed it's not more packed, although it would probably reduce its charms. Many tiki bars need to be barnacle encrusted temples to tropicalia because their locations aren't sexy. This is the exact opposite. How can you beat being on a hillside in California overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the rugged Channel Islands with a properly made Mai Tai in your hand? Rum was made to be gulped with a healthy dose of salty fresh sea air under a gorgeous clear sky. A sensory overload in all the best ways. This is where Gidget went on a bender with Moondoggie. About the only thing possible to improve the scenic vista would be an erupting volcano on one of the islands. Unusually, this is a tiki joint you want to drink and dine at during the day and night. They don't have a lot of space but they do a lot of little things right and it really captures the aloha spirit.

Nice place, good service and a lot of attention to details. Tiki tOny did many of the carvings and other details. Parking wasn't too bad when I was there. Food and drinks were well above average.
