8 SPOTS LOCALS LOVE TO FREQUENT IN VENTURA
1. An island paradise…on Main Street.
It just so happens that despite the beach being half a mile away, many Venturans choose to sit beneath a straw canopy and brave the “tsunami warnings” at VenTiki Lounge & Lanai on Main Street for a little taste of island life.
First, forget everything you thought you knew about Tiki culture. VenTiki’s cocktails aren’t your diabetes-in-a-highball-glass kind of beverage. This place prides itself on cultivating classic, legit-as-you-can-get cocktails created by the folks who brought the island culture stateside back in the 1930s. No, there aren’t any singing birds, but thunder and lightning will greet you if you’re around on Tsunami Tuesdays.
