Alameda, CA 94501
Tiki, or not tiki -- that is not the question at Forbidden Island, Alameda's premier tiki lounge. This Lincoln Ave hotspot is a veritable oasis of vibrantly colored and expertly mixed cocktails, ranging from mai tais, daiquiris, painkillers, scorpion bowls, and "pools of paradise," delicious liquor-forward concoctions guaranteed to get you and five of your friends in the island spirit. A regular schedule of DJs and live entertainment makes it a popular weekend destination; combined with the menu of bar bites and the dog-friendly, tropical plant-obsessed patio, it's a good time any night of the week.
