Online – Pagan Bay: SF’s Impact on American Tiki

Neighborhood: Online Tour


Come learn about a California phenomenon that took the country by storm. American tiki culture was first born in Los Angeles and Oakland, but as soldiers returned from their time in the Pacific during World War II, tiki idols, palm fronds, and tropical drinks spread across the country like a massive tidal wave. For over 20 years, tiki reigned supreme before a new generation dismissed it as tacky and outdated. But with the rise of the craft cocktail movement at the start of the 21st century, tiki bars are again welcoming guests with the promise of an escapist fantasy.

We’ll also start off the tour with a cocktail demo!
