Los Feliz's Tiki-Ti Is 'Indefinitely Closed'
Update: Tiki-Ti says they'll be back.
Some shocking news comes by way of Tiki-Ti's owners today: the beloved Los Feliz tiki bar is indefinitely closed.
It's not clear what prompted the closure, but this is definitely a big hit to Los Feliz and the tiki bar community. (It's even listed on our Best Tiki Bars in Los Angeles story.) Tiki-Ti has been a mainstay in Los Angeles since 1961, and still remains to be family-run since it first opened. It's a red-lit joint full of Hawaiian-themed knick knacks and national license plates decorating the tiny 12-seater bar. Their extensive menu allows you to get 92 different kinds of strong and delicious cocktails that would be sure to get you sloshed after just a couple of glasses. Plus, folks could smoke indoors at Tiki-Ti, a rarity in the city that is made possible through a legal loophole for owner-operated bars. Nary would you not find a line snaking outside of the bar on weekends with people anxious to get in.
We hope that the owners of Tiki-Ti will be able to get through whatever problems they're facing, and reopen this bar soon.
