With only 12 stools and a handful of tables, Tiki-Ti is about the size of a real tiki hut. But what Tiki-Ti lacks in size, it makes up for in drinks and personality. Original mixologist Ray Buhen passed off his secret recipes for tropical drinks to his son and grandson, who now serve up 86 of his exotic specialties. Note that the bar does not serve beer or wine.
