I wonder how many more tiki bars SF can absorb? Hopefully this one won't have heavy metal blaring like my last try at the north beach "tiki" spot. Come to think of it my recent visit to the Lucky Tiki down south was also plagued by loud metal.

Back in the good old days (late 70s, early 80's) there wasn't much down there. Industrial spaces and offices. Some artist studios .( the starving type ) and performance spaces. Worth your life to take the wrong turn. At night it was a counter-culture no man's land and Hamburger Mary's was a kind of starting point for your exciting evening activities. Very gay, but not to the exclusion of everyone else. You could even get a parking place down there back then (if you had a car which no one did). While strolling the area in the wee hours you would see home made S&M parlors and secret bath houses and lots of guys with big mustaches wearing black leather biker attire. Then the yuppie infestation started. Old warehouses became "showplaces" and everyone trying to "buy" cool moved their offices there so of course it no longer was. Later the tech thing happened and people were suddenly millionaires. the atmosphere died

There were a few hold outs, but they didn't really make it either. First the artsy community got pushed to the east bay, but people who didn't grab hold of something soon scattered to Sacramento, Los Angeles, Seattle and who knows where.

Just my take on things, but probably pretty right on. Not that some of the millionaires don't have the right stuff, but it just ain't the same.

Still, a new tiki bar is always a beautiful thing.

SpyTiki:

You forgot the Gift Center. That was the San Francisco of my pre-tiki college days (heading over the bridge from Cal).

I frequently hung out in that neck of the woods in the mid-80s, where I became a regular at DNA.

True, it was the location of Many, many after-hour underground clubs and, at the time, another more established restaurant.

The place where the mustached gentlemen were going (after hanging on Ringold Street) was named "the Eagle."

The times we had!

I think the saturation point will not occur until there are twice as many tiki bars as there are Irish pubs.

I just heard from someone "in the know" that this bar is owned by the same guy who owns Lime and several other bars in SF. Also it won't be all that "tiki" by our definition.

Maybe that is the "sneaky" part-that it isn't "Tiki".
