Honi Honi. How do I love thee. (Sorry, Spoiler Alert) A tiki oasis amidst the bustle of Hong Kong. It was when I was just starting to gain my appreciation of the tiki drink that I came across this place. I was assigned to a project in Hong Kong a few years ago and thanks to the Interwebs - found out Honi Honi. If you...

Deeply nestled in the labyrinthine interiors of the New Otani Hotel and what I assume is an office building near the Nagatacho station in Tokyo is the tiki oasis of Trader Vic's.

Time to start logging all the great tiki places I've been to, want to go to, and the beverages they make there (including ones I've made myself). I'm going to start by adding two types of posts - Tiki Bar Review (duh) and Drink Focus. The latter is where I will break down beverages that I have made for myself and I'll share the recipe...
UPDATE 4/2018 - Don's closed its doors in April 2018. Their instagram feed promises that they are searching for a new location after they were pushed out by high rent from a developer looking to build condos. One of the first Tiki Bars I went to and certainly one of the best if not the biggest, Don The Beachcomber in Sunset Beach is named after...
