Venue Info

This tucked-away Tiki joint in North Beach meets all the requirements of a good dive bar experience. Something about the place -- probably the sand on the floor, faux Polynesian statues, and bras hanging from the ceiling -- makes people drink like they're on vacation. The bartenders pour a strong and cheap drink, whether it's a single-serving pina colada or a sugar-and-alcohol-filled Volcano bowl.
