Here's a Fairmont Hotel room appetizer menu for the Tonga Room.

I just went to the Tonga Room for the first time a few weeks ago. The second Hurricane glass pictured in TabooDan's 2011.03.03 post, the one with the flowers on it, is their current glass. If you order a Hurricane it comes in this glass. The glass is apparently the only item the restaurant currently sells which has the restaurant name on it. They do have some other drinks served in tiki mugs and bowls but the mugs and bowls are all generic items (according to my waiter).

This seems like a business opportunity. There are so many talented and industrious people here on TC. I'm sure somebody here could design a perfect mug for the Tonga.

When I went to the Tonga Room last month, our waiter gave me a bunch of these postcards. I think they're pretty nice.

That postcard is great! Going to have to get up to SF this summer and get me one.

Thanks for posting.

Lines out the door and now a postcard. We really need to get a custom mug going.

Kenbo-Jitsu,

Thanks for sending me the new postcard, I appreciate that!

Saw these old items for the Tonga Room that are of interest.

Love the name of this band, the "Sol Bright and his Hollywaiians" with "Girlie Mcshane"!



And this menu shows a photo of a nice floor show. Glad that this place is STILL around. Don't forget to stop by and keep the Tiki spirit alive if your in town.

So who's been lately?

A drink and snack menu folder spotted with Mischa Novy on the strings.



And those great drink names!



Zombie portside would have you leaning!

ATP,

Nice frame job on that menu! I have one of those some where in the collection.

I spotted this postcard on-line looks to be from the 1970s.




Check out the Tiki mug swag on the tables!





And the floating bandstand.

Wow. I've never seen a customized drink umbrella before. What a great idea!

In yesterday's (Sunday, Feb. 24) L.A. Times' travel section, Tonga Room was listed as on of the "49 Places You Might Have Missed" in San Francisco, and includes a nice color photo of the restaurant.
