Humuhumu’s description

The Grass Skirt opened in November 2016, in San Diego's Pacific Beach neighborhood. It is owned by the SDCM restaurant group. This speakeasy-style tiki bar is hidden behind a poke restaurant, Good Time Poke. There is a full menu of tropical cocktails, mostly their own creations, and a menu of seafood-centered dishes. Carved posts by local tiki legend Tiki Bosko support thatch over booths wrapping around a central fire pit, and backed by a grand mural of Diamond Head with a hula dancer. The bar is backed with orange tile and lava rock, and fronted by bamboo, lauhala and tapa cloth. One booth sits inside the mouth of a huge tiki head.

Not as good as false idol but four times the size. And they serve food and have free off street parking. Worst part is the awful music they play starting at 9pm. Legit tiki bar.

I would call this more of a hipster bar than a tiki bar. Hipster bars are okay but not when I was expecting a tiki bar. The drink was quite good but I wonít be going back.

Terrible service. Be patient and order a lot if someone shows up. We tried two consecutive nights and even with different servers and virtually empty tables there was almost no service.
