Frankie's Tiki Room
The kitschy beachcomber designs of Frankie’s are the brainchild of Bamboo Ben Bassham, the grandson of a creator of Disneyland’s Enchanted Tiki Room. The bar is chock-full of carvings, totems, thatch, and bamboo. Rum-heavy drinks are served in regular glasses or souvenir mugs (most designed by local artists) that channel the vibe of the place. One of the fave tipples: the Tangerine Speedo, made up of rum, crème de cassis, and Chambord. Another popular choice is the Mutiny, crafted from vodka, melon liqueur, amaretto, Everclear, and cranberry juice. In addition to these house specialties, Frankie’s offers traditional tiki drinks such as mai tais, Navy Grogs, and Lapu Lapus.
