Located on the Terrace Level of Fairmont San Francisco Hotel, the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar has been around serving decadent libations and Polynesian-fusion cuisine since 1945. They had a 75-foot indoor pool, but they transformed it to a “lagoon” with a floating stage in the middle with a live band. Yes… a floating stage!

While you don’t normally think of tikis and whiskey drinks, although not on their menu at the time this was written, they do exist. Ask the bartender and they’ll be more than happy to hook you up with something to the likes of a:

  • London Sour with scotch, orange, lemon, orgeat and simple syrup
  • Port Light with bourbon, lemon juice, passion fruit syrup and grenadine

Or many others.

Sweet, sweet bourbon drinks


Sweet drinks but a long of fun, so much it deserves 5 stars! I recommend starting your night here with some kitschy fun but the drinks are too sweet to end it there.



Kitschy, fun atmosphere
It has a lagoon inside!


Drinks are really sweet
