Culver City, California, United States
Opened in Culver City in June of 1963.
Owned by James B. Wong and Po Yuen Chau. It was named Bali Hai after the hit tune from the musical South Pacific.
Served Cantonese/Americanized Chinese food and tropical drinks.
The decor outside resembled a tiki hut with bamboo and dried palm trimming. Inside, there was a small wooden bridge, which led to the dining area, the long bar and the performing stage.
Tropic Isle was also at this same address, from 1961-1962, so Bali Hai basically took over after it closed and utilized the already tropical build-out.
Bali Hai closed in 1969.
As of 2022, this location appears to be a Vans shoe store or adjacent to where the shoe store currently stands.
