Tonga Hut Tiki Lounge

It's An Endless Summer at Los Angeles Tiki Bars and Events

When the original Don's Beachcomber opened in 1933, Hollywood became the official birthplace of the Polynesian themed Tiki culture reflected in architecture, fashion and movies. Decorated with items that Donn Beach (aka Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt) scavenged from the ocean shores, the bar later known as Don the Beachcomber served “exotic” rum drinks with flair. The island escapism offered by his imaginative Tiki concept and its many imitators flourished for decades before nearly being killed off in the disco era.

Tiki's current resurgence owes a lot to the craft cocktail movement, which recognized the potential in the elaborate tropical concoctions made with house syrups and fresh juices. With a new generation of bartenders leading the way, the L.A. tiki scene is once again thriving, and nothing says summer more than a fancy fruit garnish and a little paper umbrella.

There’s something mysteriously seductive about the Roosevelt, which opened in May 1927 and is the oldest continually operating hotel in Los Angeles. You can’t take your eyes off the coffered ceiling of the lobby, the three-tiered fountain under the hotel’s original chandelier, the beautifully-tiled terra-cotta stairs to the mezzanine, the pool painted by David Hockney—seriously, you could Instagram this place for hours.

Some shop at the same grocery stores, malls and boutiques, eat in the same restaurants, and even get their prescriptions filled at CVS—just like us. But they also spend time shopping at stores that may just be above our paychecks. So in tribute to the more glamorous side of things—here are some shopping districts where you may see some of them— the celebrities. And sometimes, they stop for frozen yogurt—just like us.
