Loyal Order of The Drooling Bastard.

Oldest Tiki Bar In LA

The tiki drinks mentioned are actually the tiki drink canon found in Beachbum Berry's Grog Log. It is the seminal work in tiki drink culture; rescuing classic tiki cocktails from oblivion. If you drink every drink in the log in one calendar year, you get to join the Loyal Order of The Drooling Bastard. Membership includes bragging rites, your name immortalized on the brotherhood plaque and the "buck off" drink token. It's not a task for the faint of liver (or wallet).

Oldest Tiki Bar In LA

They have a list of 76 tiki-esque drinks. Drink them all in a year and you receive a charm that gives you $1 off every drink for life. Amazing.

Tiki bar.

Oldest Tiki Bar In LA

Great tiki bar with a big selection of stiff tropical drinks. Inside, the Tonga Hut has a giant tiki head, tiki stools, black velvet paintings, waterfall, and other tiki decorations. The only disappointment was that tropical drinks weren't served in tiki mugs. A must stop for bar fans.
