The Pacific Restaurant is not accessible via metro - it is probably at least 10 miles from the nearest metro station.

You may want to try Mama Qwan's Tiki Hut, which just opened a couple of weekends ago - which is within a block of the Clarendon metro station (on the orange line, in Northern VA) I haven't been there yet, but there is some info on this thread - and if you do visit, let us know!

We went to Mama Quan's last night and were pretty disappointed. Concrete floors, loud frat-geared reggae, pseudo-tropical $9 sandwiches and not a tiki mug in the house. The crowd hailed from the Banana Republic. The servers told us the tiki theme was only a "summer fling."

Was at the Pour House yesterday and - in looking at their menus online - was astonished to discover that the Lincoln and Roosevelt tikis are actually still on display on either side of the main sign.





Also spotted this sign in a nearby park while walking back to the Metro. Apparently cocktail-making hoodlums have been hanging out there:



Aloha!

This has got to be (have been) one of the strangest concepts brought on by the Tiki revival. I am not a big fan of modern portrait/ caricature mugs (or Tikis), but one has to respect that they went all out with their concept on this one.
