La Mesa, California, United States
The Lumi-La Lounge is the home tiki bar of Jennifer, Gillian and Kenn in La Mesa, California. They built the bar in the sun room of their house in July 2010; "lumi" is Hawaiian for room, and "la" is the word for sun. The space features art from many local Southern California artists, and artists carving in Hawaii. The physical bar itself is re-worked from Jennifer and Kenn's wedding altar pieces. The Lumi-La features custom t-shirts for contest winners, a custom designed cocktail, an outdoor patio, custom carvings, moldings, floorboards and picture framesall carved by Kenn.
The Lumi-La Lounge is where the rum flows, the ukulele plays, and Polynesian attire reigns. If the sun is out, the Lumi-La is likely hosting a pig roast, a game of corn-hole or just general frivolity and libations.
