The Tonga Room & Hurricane Lounge

San Francisco

It's the ultimate in old-school, over-the-top Tiki kitsch (we’re talking a cover band playing on a raft in the middle of a swimming pool while it rains) and it’ll never go out of style. Located in the a Nob Hill hotel, the Tonga Room opened in 1945 and, despite its tourist-appeal, is now one of those places where you more or less have to go and order a Scorpion bowl before they give you your San Francisco citizenship card.
