Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar
This 70-year-old Polynesian-inspired bar at the Fairmont Hotel is part Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean and part theme party with potent drinks. The bartenders mix rum cocktails of their own creation and showcase guest-star concoctions from local bars such as the famous margarita from Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant, and the Punchbowl from Smuggler’s Cove. What really sets the Tonga Room apart, however, is the divine tiki-kitsch decor with thatched roofs and an hourly rain shower (thunder and lightning included) that sprinkles the central blue "lagoon," the Fairmont's former indoor pool. On weekend nights, a live band decked out in flowery shirts provides entertainment.
