Local tiki bar, Tiki-Ko was recently included in LA Weekly’s: The 7 Best Tiki Bars in Southern California with some very prestigious company. Tiki-Ko features drinks with ingredients made in-house, a really cool atmosphere and most importantly (for this blog at least) a selection of local craft beer bottles as well as the requisite list of hipster beers. Tiki-Ko was also featured in today’s Bakersfield Californian’s: The Dish by Stefani Dias.
