I think it's a big mistake to miss out the Aloha just because of one bad apple bartender. My experience was the opposite - both the manager and the bartender came out from behind the bar to chat to me and even took photos of me pretending to bartend. Obviously it was a quiet night! Great decor too, plus they sold a good array of mugs.

I'm off to Granada & Seville in May, but don't hold out much hope for Tiki having just been there 4 months ago & finding nothing. Still, if anyone has any tips I'd love to check them out.

I made it over to Kahala last night and hung out for an hour or so. As others have indicated, it's a beautiful bar with unique decor, and the service was excellent. I was also pleased to note that they had an original chalk drawing by our own Tiki Diablo hanging in a place of honor behind the bar.

The drinks were, in my opinion, mixed very haphazardly, although the presentation was good; they were also far too sweet. I had a Doctor Funk that almost gave me cavities and my friend had a Bastardo Saffrin (Sufferin' Bastard) that was also extremely sugary. The nice bartendress poured us some samples of the mix for their Scorpion and something I think was called Tanza de Terror (Dance of Terror). All were sweet enough to put us into a diabetic coma!

I'm going to try and hit the Kahiki before I leave, time permitting.

Good thread! Needs to be updated...
I been working on that, but after 6 years living in Spain, I keep finding new evidence of un-documented Spanish tiki bars.
