The Tiki-Ti has many exotic Tikis and an assortment of colorful items from all over the world. If you didn't know better you might think that it was a museum of Pop Polynesian culture. After all it is just a small tropical watering hole on the far end of Sunset Blvd.

So, why is it standing room only on Friday and Saturday nights? (And sometimes even on Wednesdays & Thursdays) Why do people wait outside in the cold for a cocktail? Why do people not tell their friends about the Tiki, just so they it won’t get too crowded? Why do so many bartenders drink at the Tiki? What is the fascination?

Well, simply put, it’s the drinks. Ray Buhen knew a thing or two about mixing tropical drinks. He was one of a handful of Filipino bartenders who help start the tropical drink craze in the early thirties. His knowledge and understanding of tropical drinks went way beyond recipes. Ray passed down a tradition and understanding of tropical drinks that lives on in his son Michael and his grandsons Mike and Mark.

We can’t impart to you that knowledge or even serve you a drink on line, but we can give you a small taste (pun intended) of what those famous drinks do look like and a short description. With 94 drinks on the current menu, we are still in the process of taking pictures, so for now we have almost half of them described.

You have a choice of viewing them either by Alcohol (Rum, Gin, etc.) or Alphabetically by clicking on their respective buttons on the left hand side. Each one opens up a new pop up window that has a compete list on the right hand side. After that you may want to visit our Old Drink Menus: a collection of old menus from the Tiki-Ti of days long past. Also from the early days are our Old Mugs: these are the original mugs once used at the Tiki-Ti. Finally for those of you, who just can’t make up their minds on what to drink, check out The Wheel. Use the Printable Drink List to open up a new window that you use to print out your own drink menu complete with a check list for all the drinks you either want to try or you want to try in the future.
