Washington DC Trip

Hey everyone (DCTiki especially)!

I'll be on a business trip from this Thursday night, 13 March until Tuesday 18 March in the afternoon.

Are there any DC Tiki places I should hit?
I already plan on ordering a Navy Grog at Trader Vic's - Any other places of note?



Just found out there is no longer a Trader Vic's in DC.

That stinks.


Check out our "area" website for more details

Politiki is worth a visit, although it tends to be sort of "frat boy"-ish
Honolulu restaurant in VA is special. This tiki bar review pages link mentions the few DC tiki places.



Thanks for the great links - Since I'll be on expense account, perhaps I'll hit Honolulu.

It is to bad that you will not be here on the 22nd when we are all getting together.

be prepared - Honololo is the most authentic tiki place in the area, the owner was a bartender at the old tradervic's , but it is also an old chinese restaurant in a very meagerly appointed stop along the highway. I wouldn't qualify Polotiki as frat-boy, more capitol-hill interns, oddly enough Polotiki seems to be one of the favorite haunts of the Galludett students (DC's college for the hearing impaired.)

for real authenticity - there is on Moai somewhere in the smithsonian


How did your trip turn out. Did you make it to the Honolulu.
