The Kona Club is an archetypal next generation tiki lounge. The self-described rock n’ roll tiki bar in Oakland serves up carefully constructed, reimagined tiki classics in sumptuous tropical surrounds to a punk rock soundtrack. There are puffer fish lanterns, bamboo walls and an oversized topless islander statue. TVs play Magnum PI on loop and the jukebox offers something for everyone. The one-note Mai Tai is an unfortunate misstep, but all is redeemed by the Nut Chi Chi, an excellent blended drink made with macadamia nuts. Scorpion bowls are also top-notch, but quite strong—so watch out.
