A night at the Tonga Room
If you like kitsch or Tiki Bars, you'll love The Tonga Room. Brett and I met some friends there on Friday night. It's in the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill, and though it was moderately busy with tourists on Friday, I'm sure it was really swinging back when it was built.
My favorite part? It's not the rainstorms inside the restaurant or the fruity drinks with paper umbrellas.....it's the boat that "sails" into the middle of the indoor pool with a live cover band on it that plays 80s tunes. When they go off on break the boat "sails" back to shore. Too cheesy - but worth a visit.....once :-)
