The Grass Skirt is quite possibly the best tiki lounge and restaurant in San Diego, and that’s not just the cocktails talking. Not only that, but with a great hidden entrance, superb plates and pu-pus, and a location that has plenty of parking. I was invited to attend as part of their sneak peek soft opening, brought a guest, and had a great night sampling a variety of their menu. It’s all great, with a variety of amazing tiki cocktails, and a full bar as well. The tiki plates are superb… fresh, authentic, and delicious!
They did it right with the seating options, they have large tables set apart for groups, many tables for dinner, and quite a few spots for couples or individuals to enjoy their time, with a big patio area available as well.
The decor and vibe was done extremely well, it feels like a posh detailed Disneyland-esque vibe with the depth and vast planning that went into the interior design.
I’ll be back for dinner, birthdays, a night out with friends, and will show it off to out of town visitors, and I highly recommend it to all for a great night out.
