You will find it.



Not me Skip.

I've been going the other way into L.A.

Although I wouldn't mind spending some time in SD....

Well Hell...

I contacted the people at Smuggler's Cove and they said it wasn't true.

They said that a well know San Francisco bartender is moving to San Diego to open a new place with some local SD partners, but it's not going to be tiki.

They didn't give me any details, but they said it was going to be a great place (even though it wasn't tiki).

I need a drink... Well, another one...

Is this what you guys are talking about?

The Air Conditioned Lounge, 4673 30th St. at Adams.

I went there a few weeks ago and it wasn't all that great. Bar Pink, etc. have these guys beat all over. Maybe I'm missing something, they're trying to do event nights but don't seem to have any ideas about what an event night is. It's not a very big place and there's no real room for a band. The drinks were no big deal either; Smugglers Cove this ain't. They have a real nice sign out front though and one of the best (new too) mid-century antique shops a few doors south on 30th.

No worries... May I suggest that you gave us all a good reason to have a drink? Okole maluna!

Bummer. I hope at some point we do get another tiki bar in SD. We need a bar that is more bar than resturant. Where would be the best place for one? North Park?

Cammo - Air Conditioned has been around for a while now. I went there like a year and a half ago. They were advertising an 80's night so a bunch of us went. They have a strict dress code, which turned me off since their bar wasn't very upscale. They didn't play any 80's either, just top 40 generic dance music from today. I don't think I would ever have any reason to go back there. But they do have AC!

Tiki Gods like the Pacific Ocean, so Pacific Beach is the logical location, not to mention the hordes of 20 somethings to patronize it and keep it open, so it doesn't close like Mr. Mai Tai Tiki Lounge.

I think there's a bar in Pacific Beach called the Tiki Bar, it may be called the Tiki House now. Unfortunately, there's nothing tiki about it, except for the name. It's a bar that only serves beer and has live music.

Mister Tiki had a bad location for it's theme. I can't picture a tiki bar surviving downtown.

North Park sounds good, since it's close to me! Haha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ray Boylan mentioned something about this on his recent radio show.

Hmmm...

Isn't there a website where you can check on what liquor license applications have been issued in San Diego? It takes a while to get them approved doesn't it?
Don't forget about Pirates Cove Tiki Port in Point Loma. A place with tiki in the same that only serves coffee and smoothies. Sacrilegious! Although they do have good coffee.

A dress code at AC? I've been there a few times (it's OK, nothing special), and have never experienced a dress code. And I think the last time I was there I was wearing shorts. I don't know that this is the bar that's to be the next Consortium Holdings bar (Craft & Commerce, El Dorado, Neighborhood). I just know they're opening one at or near the 30th & Adams intersection.

Kadan closed last month and the new people that are moving in are the owners of the downtown gastropub "Neighborhood".
