Now that I’ve had a chance to catch my breath, I can share a bit more about Pagan Idol, San Francisco’s new tiki bar. But honestly, I’m feeling hesitant. I don’t want to tell you anything about Pagan Idol. I want you to experience it for yourself, I want it to be your discovery. If you want to stay unspoiled, get there quickly: they’re open Monday-Friday from 4pm, Saturday from 6pm (closed Sunday), at 375 Bush in downtown SF.
I will share that I love Pagan Idol, it is a dream of a tiki bar. Every drink I’ve tasted was amazing (the menu is all original tropicals, but all the classic tiki drinks you know and love can be ordered off-menu, too). The soundtrack is heavenly—Exotica and hapa-haole, perfection. The service is joyous, and the people there have a genuine love for Tiki.
If your curiosity is getting the better of you, I’ve added 17 pictures to the listing in Critiki, including the drink menu. I’ve also filled in a bit more detail about how the space is laid out and decorated in the Pagan Idol Critiki listing.
That said—if you’ve taken pictures of Pagan Idol, please do share them with Critiki! These pictures could be breathing life into a tikiphile stuck out in Siberia. (Not joking, Critiki really does get traffic from Siberia.) Think of the Siberians who may never get to see Pagan Idol, except through your photos!
Okay for those of you who really, really do want to know and see all… proceed to the Critiki listing for Pagan Idol.
