To quote the Tiki Goddess, it used to be Lincoln's Address, now it's Will's Address.
Best Tiki Bar EVER. Well, that I've been to. Happy to call it my new home. Congrats Martin and Mike.

UNBELIVABLE!!! The Forbidden Island get the spot right above the top notch. An amazing and totally mesmerizing layout with so much to look at your eye my might popout. Water features, an outside patio, a great jukebox, an excellent selection of drinks, including many from the TC Ohana recipe book, and plenty of good beer too. The dancers were great, the buffet was ono and our hosts were more thatn gracious. The M3, Rebecca, Bamboo Ben, Hanford and Humu, Tiki Diablo and everyone else who hammered a nail or toasted some bamboo really captured and created something special and quite a paradise on the tiny isle of Almeda. I look forward to my next trip out to the Forbidden Island. You can't help but notice the aloha, love and sweat that everybody involved put into making this place a must see destination spot in the Bay Area.
As always it was great to see some old friends and meet some new people. The Ohana Hut premeire was the pineapple in the Mai-Tai for me and I want to thank Stuckie again for bringing the prototype on the road for us all to see and drink out of. One more super big YOU ROCK to The Jab for letting us converge on his little slice of paradise mixing up some tasty cocktails and then also feeding us some of the best fish I have had in a long long while.

Whoa.

There had seemed to be a lot of buzz about Forbidden Island all around town -- and not just from tikiphiles. I had a feeling that last night's Grand Opening would be well-attended, but there just isn't any way to know how something is going to be received until it's out there.

They had to start a line at the door before 6pm. Just a few hours later, the line snaked all the way to the end of the block, maybe even around the corner, and the line remained pretty hefty right up until the end of the evening. I heard of people waiting an hour to get in. Despite the long wait, I only heard and overheard enthusiastically positive comments about everything -- especially the decor and the drinks.

It's going to be very interesting to see what Forbidden Island is like in the weeks to come, but I am just absolutely thrilled, and hopeful that Forbidden Island is going to prove that it's worth the effort to go the extra mile when creating a tiki bar -- the key is giving attention to every detail, and doing it well from soup to nuts. You don't have to pander to the lowest common denominator to have a successful tiki bar -- anybody can appreciate quality.

Bravo, and congratulations!

After visiting the Mai-Kai for the first time a few years ago I decided when I retire in 20 or 30 years I will move to Florida. Now I think I'll stay in Alameda as long as Forbidden Island is around, or until my liver gives out.

I arrived last night just before 9pm to be told, "Sorry, we're full."
WOW, Who'd a thunk?!? Well I'm disapointed that I didn't get to experience the Forbidden Island but I'm glad to see that the opening was such a success. Congratulations to Martin and the Crew at Forbidden Island!
I guess I'll have to wait a week or so to get my Sidewinder's fang.
Aloha,
