IT'S ALWAYS A FUN TIME AT VENTIKI
Leave your troubles behind (for a few hours anyway) and be
transported to a tropical paradise in the heart of downtown
Ventura. VenTiki gets the island vibes going any night of the week.
Picture this: Sit outside on the lanai around a firepit. The
tiki torches are lit and island music is drifting overhead. Sip a
handcrafted cocktail - you can't go wrong with the classic Mai
Tai, made with rum and fresh lime juice. There's a lengthy drink
menu, and most have really fun names ("I'll have a Voodoo
Temptress of the Seven Pleasures, please.")
After a few sips, you'll be hungry for VenTiki's Polynesianinspired plates: Try the legendary pepper-seared ahi or Kalua
pork sliders. Okole maluna - bottoms up!
