Image of the Day: Tiki-Ti, Los Angeles, California

L.A.’s tiki bar scene is legendary and the legend among legends has to be Tiki Ti on Sunset Boulevard in the Los Feliz district. To say that the bar, founded in 1961, is a local institution would be a massive understatement. It’s cash-only and doesn’t have an ATM so make sure you load your wallet before arriving. And arrive early because it’s tiny and the line to get in tends to wrap around the block. The drinks list is vast; favorites include the Uga Booga, Ray’s Mistake and Missionary’s Downfall. But the cocktails are only half the experience. As you can tell from this photo, the decor is more intoxicating than the rum-centric libations.

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Year of Drinking Adventurously. When I’m not traveling and drinking— aww, hell, who am I kidding, even when I am—I'm editor-at-large of Beverage World magazine and its companion site, beverageworld.com. I’ve been at Beverage World since January 2003. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at http://www.storenvy.com/products/510365-beerituality-dvd and can be streamed and downloaded at amazon.com
