One thing I love about Forbidden Island is the way it looks like an old tiki bar inside because of the liberal use of old pre-used wood on the walls and shelves. It seems that they started a trend! I just saw this news item of a new restaurant opening in San Francisco that is using "reclaimed woods for the floors, bar, tables and chairs".

From Gayot.com (http://www.gayot.com/restaurants/sanfrancisconews.html#opening):
Quote:
Moving into the vacant Maroc space on Haight St. will be The Alembic, a bar/restaurant from the owner of Magnolia Pub and Brewery. The philosophy is to highlight the artisanal and micro-distillery scene, like the Bay Area’s local producers, and beyond. The chef is Eddie Blyden, formerly of Sneaky Tiki and 21st Amendment (he has also now taken over the kitchen of Magnolia). The American menu will focus on using organic, local and sustainable ingredients. The 40-seat space will be cozy classic, utilizing reclaimed woods for the floors, bar, tables and chairs. The plan is for a July or August opening. 1725 Haight St., San Francisco.

Oh my GOD! I lived within three blocks of that amazing place, and now I live thousands of miles away?!

When I was living in Alameda, the Tiki Bar didn't exist yet - it was still the horribly run-down "Lincoln's Address"... As we were getting ready to move, the bar was being remodelled...

Friends mentioned that it was amazing inside, but we didn't have time to visit... Now I find out it's basically what I want my home Tiki Bar to look like, and I'm in a different country?!

Oh well, c'est la vie... I'll just have to make my home bar look just as good here in the land of ice and snow!

Finally got a chance to visit the Forbidden Island last weekend - this is absolutely the best new tiki bar that I've been in yet. Music was perfect, even the old islandy video that was playing over the bar was perfect. Details all the way down the custom swizzles in every drink made the entire experience exactly what I had been hoping for. This is now a mandatory stop for any bay area trip for me! Yar, drink up!

Wow...this place looks amazing...thanks for posting the pictures. I will hit it when I am off for New Year's week. I am clamoring for a Krakatoa.

Perhaps the Bad Liver (which is made with coffee liqueur) instead!

Tarzan highly recommend Monkeyman's Monkeypod. Taste buds havin' a party while soft gray matter swirled with psychedelic overtones flashing jurassic images lightly toasted and smacking of smooth white buttocks inlaid with warrior incantations and other significant tattoos from prehistoric era long since departed.

mmmmm, Tarzan like Monkeypod.

My new bumper sticker. Thanks Martiki! Afraid to put it on my car though - it might as well say: "Pull Me Over!".

Hey Guys, I hope there are a few more of those available for the rest of us who finished the menu. But I think I'll put it on my front bumper.

I don't think you need to worry, I'm sure Martin made enough for the rest of the class....

Forbidden Island is written about in this month's Sunset Magazine (the one with the Red Cake on it), in case ya'll wanna read about it.

Picked up my bumper sticker Wednesday night...Thanks Martin! So, if I finish the drink menu twice do I get a 2nd sticker? Or is it off to work on finishing the Premium Rum menu for a different sticker?
