The 65th Street Revival is the home tiki bar of Ron and Chris Amittone. The name is a nod to the nearby vortex of early tiki in Oakland at 65th & San Pablo: Hinky Dinks, which became the original Trader Vic's, and Zombie Village. The home has been in his family for generations, and his family spent many evenings in both of those establishments.
Ron's former career as a garbage collector has given him access to incredible treasures. Every bit of the bar is covered with the most amazing rare bits and bobs of vintage Tikiana, Hawaiiana, and fun old booze stuff. Ron constructed the bar and shelves himself, he has incredible taste and great skills in bringing it all together on a scale that works just right in this space.
