Wow, what a change! I was there a year ago last February and the only people drinking there were the local bar clientele. I hope the drinks have improved because they were nothing special. I was there when they were still caving the two new outdoor tikis.

Great job by Siesta Key rum - I'll see if I can find an email address to send them a note about how much I appreciate their willingness to support the ongoing improvements at the Bahi. The constant progress here is truly encouraging. I'm looking forward to visiting the Bahi again in the near future and enjoying all the changes. Many thanks to you, Robotiki, and the many others who have worked so hard to effect this transition.

It is and always be a neighborhood bar as well as an iconic tiki bar. But that's a good thing. The drinks surely have improved, we have a very skilled mixologist consulting for us now and will be losing a lot of the cheap strong drinks in favor of better quality, if not a little more expensive, authentic tiki drinks. The first two new drinks have been met with great success. Whereas the jet fuel mai tai outsold all other drinks 10 to 1 previously, the new Bahi Aloha (known everywhere else as the Caribe Welcome) is about to overtake the mai tai in sales. The Cobra's Fang has fruit squeezed fresh daily and they both have Siesta Key Rum as the base. Yummy stuff, come back and check it out.

Great article in this month's Sarasota Scene:

some of the details he mixed up a little but overall a pretty good article.

I'm so glad to hear that smoking is now prohibited. With an asthmatic wife, that's my #1 concern when looking into Tiki bars in the US. If we're ever back down that way (we honeymooned in Walt Disney World, so it's ripe for a milestone anniversary at some point), I know we can actually go without having to worry about it.

New carpet at the Hut this week. Finally the remnants of the smoking smell is completely gone. Next up is the chair restoration.

I don't think that fez is authentically tiki.

That's pretty funny - Just please don't make it into a mug, there are enough of those Star Wars mugs out there already!

I can assure you that it won't ever be a mug. And I am with you on the whole pop culture mug thing.

Do look for more tiki mugs from the Hut, all based on tiki styles that existed when the Hut was born in 1954 (i.e. no chicklet toothed Florida styles EVAH!).

After he was done tending bar, did he synthesize a couple-thousand pints of genuine Ancient Rocket Bourbon?

This effort is encouraging to see. We'll certainly be by at some point. Keep it up, I can see lot's of potential room for more detail.
