- In Short
While this whimsical spot still attracts a hotel and after-work crowd for its cheap happy hour eats, pool tables and tropical martinis like the Virgin Sacrifice, downtown's continuing renaissance (not to mention L.A. Live's location just a few blocks away) has injected fresh energy into this somewhat tame tiki bar. The decor is actually pretty cool--authentic Polynesian art, surfboard tables, big Gauguin murals and an underlit "lava" floor. Suits and sports fans suck down Mai Tais martinis and brews accompanied by bar food ranging from cheeeburgers and mini crab cakes to chilled shrimp, chicken satay and pizza. The 120" giant screen HDTV screen makes it a perfect venue to watch the game, and the late-night happy hour offers excellent bargain prices on drinks.
