Some of the pictures are missing from the recent posts.
Anyways, just got back from Tonga Hut. Liz made a few awesome drinks for us like the short Zombie ( a smaller version) and the Mai tai. What a great bar it has all the elements of a great old tiki bar from the 50's and at the same time the locals (without the Hawaiian shirts) are still using it. I just love being there on a regular day early in the afternoon with all the locals like I have done for the last 20 years.

That's cool Jason, I know quite a productions have been shot at the Hut but somehow I never see them. I love the scripting, "What are they drinking" and she answers, "a Tonga Lei and a Zombie" that's great. Thanks for posting it.

Needless to say they were drinking them in two of my favorite tiki mugs.

I just noticed the photos i shot of the Tonga Hut in January of 2004 are a broken link here. I will see if i have them somewhere; they showed the bar as it had been through the 90's and early 2000's previous to Jeremy's purchase and his and other Tikicentralites restoration. Hopefully they exist on an old photo card or backed up files from the old computer. Not that i want to see a return to the beer signs and neon, mind you

I finally made the 40 mile drive to Tonga Hut and I was really impressed with the place. My girlfriend, who is not a fan of bars, wished it was closer to home because she felt so comfortable there. She was the designated driver and they never let her seltzer glass become empty.
The bartenders were friendly and they made great drinks. The decor was awesome and the crowd was very friendly. Now I have a good excuse to drive to the Valley more than 1-2 times a year.
