Fodor's Expert Review Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar

Nob Hill Bars/Pubs

Since the 1940s the Tonga Room has supplied its city with high Polynesian kitsch. Fake palm trees, grass huts, a lagoon (three-piece combos play pop standards on a floating barge), and faux monsoons—courtesy of sprinkler-system rain and simulated thunder and lightning—grow more surreal as you quaff the bar's signature mai tais and other too-too fruity cocktails. Looking for an evening chock-full of bad decision making? Order the Scorpion Bowl and let the drunk dialing begin!
