Inspired by the San Diego tiki mug thread, I thought i'd start one for the LA area, ideally a list of all restaurants/bars that offer tiki, mai-tai glasses or tiki-ish mugs. I'd love to find some smaller bars that offer mugs or glassware

Offerings - Various

Damon's - Glendale
http://www.yelp.com/biz/damons-steak-house-glendale

Pretty sure The Beachcomber in Newport/Crystal Cove doesn't have muggery anymore (unless they just recently started again.) I was there a couple of months ago and there were none. Love the green chalice/bowl they had years back.

(not my pic. shamelessly stolen from Yelp.)

Great thread. Someone should add whether mugs are unique logo mugs or generic.

Clifton's Brookdale, 648 Broadway, Los Angeles, CA, has three mugs (an owl, a grizzly bear and a black bear) and they also have a large clam shell. The clam shell is marked "Clifton's Pacific Seas" and the owl mug has "Clifton's" at its base. The Grizzly Bear is brown, the Black Bear is identical, but black. (Not sure, but hopeful that there might be even more mugs once the tiki bar's open on the 4th floor.)

The Bona Vista Lounge at the Bonaventure Hotel has souvenir mugs. It's a rotating bar on the 34th floor of the hotel which means the drinks will be expensive. Mugs are subject to availability.



Stack of records.


They had a special tiki night.

They do not have mugs....was there a few weeks back and they didn't have any and from the conversation I had with the bartender it didn't seem they would be anytime soon.

Trader Vic's in Beverly Hills does not have any mugs either (it's on the list here) I haven't seen any here for the last couple of years since I have been in southern Cali....when was the last time somebody did get a mug from here? I got one at the old Beverly Hills full restaurant but am curious when they stopped having them in the lounge.

Does anybody know if the glass at Billy's on the Beach is complimentary when you buy the mai tai the way it is at Old Tony's or do you buy it separately?

Just curious

Billy's at the Beach charges $8 for their Mai Tai glass. At Tony's, the glass is free. The Mai Tai at Tony's tasted like a chewable vitamin, so be warned...

Billyís had some anniversary double old fashions (Mai Tai glasses) with red graphics recently . The ordinary ones have black graphics. They serve their Billís Mule in a Warrior mug-I donít know if they sell em. My preference in Mai Taiís is Trader Vicís 1944. That said my wife and I like the M Tís at Billyís.
Cheers

Was in Downtown Disney in Anaheim last night. Rainforest Cafť now has this tiki mug for $10 ($16 with drink.) They said it was for a limited time only, so not a permanent offering. Not particularly great. Fairly basic mold, cheap looking paint detail. Made in China.

Was mostly just surprised to see it because it's RAINFOREST CAFE, but hey, I guess it's one more sign that Pop Polynesian is back in the mainstream!



Cheers to the weekend, gang!

Trader Sam's in Disneyland now has the new hippoponamai tai glass that matches grog grotto except on the back it says enchanted tiki bar...
If any Florida locals want to make an even trade, grog grotto for enchanted tiki bar I'm down.
LA locals - come on down and get your mugs.
