Tiki-Ti was established 55 years ago by one of Don the Beachcomber’s original Filipino bartenders, Ray Buhen. Now his sons keep the Tiki tradition alive, offering 94 tropical cocktails. They include the signature Ray’s Mistake, which is accompanied with a toast to the room, and the Blood & Sand, which summons the wind-up bull with patrons chanting “Torooooo!”
The Drink to Drink: Ray’s Mistake, a signature cocktail since 1968, is made with a “super secret flavor,” botanical liqueurs, passion fruit and a dark Coruba rum float.
Know Before You Go: Heads up, smokers: After several years of being one of the only bars in L.A. to allow smoking, it’s no longer allowed.
