‘Tiki and dine’ with a side of rain at a San Francisco go-to since 1945

*Please note that Tonga Room will be temporarily closed through April 7, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience.*

Delightfully nostalgic, the iconic Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar exudes atmosphere in spades. No wonder, since it was a Hollywood set designer who created the themed look and feel. Guests gather around a large central “lagoon,” once the hotel’s indoor swimming pool. Tropical rain, thunder and lightning storms blow through from time to time, while a band plays from a floating boat.

Dance on the remnants of the S.S. Forester, a schooner that once plied the waters between San Francisco and the South Sea Islands. Dine on Polynesian-fusion favorites And sip San Francisco’s best mai tai, along with other potent, masterfully mixed cocktails served in flirty tiki glasses and faux coconuts. Of course, all cocktails arrive with little umbrellas on top. Rated “the greatest place in the history of the world” by the late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, this famed gathering spot is a San Francisco must.
