That's awesome. I might be up that way around xmas. Last time we went the decor had been dramatically improved, but not the drinks. I hear that's been improved as well.

Day Drinking at the Hut during closed hours is one of my Fav. things to do ! ROBOTIKI has been doing a great job getting the place turned around.

Yes. The drink menu has been improved. The Mai Tai is jet fuel as always.

The Hut is small but it's pedigree dates back to the 1950's. It's one of the few originals left. Luckily FOM has been involved in the remake. A new Marquesian Tiki mug is available for purchase at the front desk of the motel next door.

I've been following the progress of their renos on facebook. I'm glad they were pointed in the right direction by the right people ;)

The jewel in my friend Scott's retro robot collection. He told me that I was one of the few people he trusted moving it. High praise. The ultimate was the 2010 Hukilau when we deconstructed an entire motel room and set up a space Tiki Theme with Robby the Robot center stage. Afterwards we put the room back the way it was. An intense but very rewarding Hukilau.

Yes they have for without great Tiki drinks why go there? The Mai Tai there is an aquired taste but it's grandfathered in. Maybe I can convince them to do a 1944 Trader Vic Mai Tai for the aficionados.

I first visited the Bahi Hut before the reno back when it was questionable to even enter? I have followed the renovations with awe and envy. Wish I was closer so I could have participated, and I do want to go check it out when I am down that way again. The FOM involvement was the catalyst that got this place going in the right direction and the partnership with Siesta Key Rum in reworking the cocktail list was the finishing touch. Now, I hear there is talk about restoring/revamping the attached motel to match the hut's retro look. Maybe even scheduling some tiki events there? It's been fun to watch. Truly grateful to all who have worked so hard to bring this place back to it's former glory.

Many, many hands were at work to restore this gem back to shining brightly in the soft tropical nights of Sarasota.

I haven't seen the new Tiki drinks that Siesta Key Rum helped formulate but definitely try their original take on the Mai Tai! Beach Bum Berry would not approve but it is a powerful kick in the pants!

Haven't tried the Siesta Key rum yet but I have tried Wicked Dolphin and Alligator Bay. Both are local rums in SW Florida that are good.

In my opinion if you are making the original 1944 Mai Tai Siesta Key Gold rum is the start of a fantastic drink.
