Description:
Located smack in the middle of Hippie Main St. USA, this new tiki bar is actually directly adjacent to the already established and very popular nightclub 19 Broadway (which makes its address easy to remember, too). The club hosts live music (including lots of swing and lounge, but also rock and other stuff) seven nights a week, but the bar is open Thursday-Sunday, 5-1 (this may change). The atmosphere is very cozy (small) in a "Gilligan's Island" sort of way, traditional and embracing in its nostalgia, and though is just opened it already has the feel of a hoppin' neighborhood joint. There are lots of tiki god statues of various sizes, bamboo-covered walls and thatched "roofs" over some of the seating. The rolling tiki bar serves up a standard list of favorites including the Mai Tai, Chi Chi and a Scorpion Bowl. My favorite is the "Nite of the Living Dead," their rather strong version of the classic Zombie. Drinks are large and reasonably priced, too. Local swing legend Vise Grip himself often makes an appearance; he is a very swank and personable host, adding to the overall warmth of the colorful atmosphere. See
http://www.19broadway.com for more, and be wary of the local cops - DUIs are pretty much their only raison d'etre.
