It’s hard to say whether the Bamboo Hut is a dive bar that’s transforming into a tiki bar, or a tiki bar that's slowly eroding into a North Beach dive. Either way, it’s raucous, rowdy and often a little dirty. Don’t expect fireworks behind the bar, but if there was ever a place to order a volcano bowl then this is it; with a flaming pool of 151 in the center, these shared 3-4 person troughs of fruit and rum aren’t messing around. One of the last remaining anything-goes North Beach bars, the likes of which have gone the way of Easter Island.
