Nothing screams summer like a tropical cocktail served in one of San Francisco’s most famous tiki bars. And next month, you can do just that.

On Thursday, the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar announced via Instagram that it would reopen for nightly service every Friday and Saturday on July 9th. Details were thin, but Eater reports that once the restaurant and bar are fully open, diners can expect to be seated on a first come, first served basis. And yes, the thunderstorms are coming again.

The famous Tiki bar, located in the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel, has been temporarily closed since March 2020 when the pandemic shutdowns began and has not yet shared any updates on its social media channels. On Instagram, the Tonga Room wrote that it plans to share more while counting to the bar reopening.

With warmer days and a newly opened San Francisco, the expected return of the Tonga Room is a sign that nature is healing. Just try not to get overwhelmed by excitement and end up in the bar pool.
