Welcome (back) to Bali Ha’i, circa 1961. At this tiki temple, there’s bamboo, flaming bowls of booze, and occasionally, a DJ spinning Esquivel and Martin Denny. But it’s a sincere homage, and these are not your mother’s rum sugarbombs: They’re deftly made cocktails from original recipes and homemade ingredients, done up old- and new-school style. We're hoping the original tapas menu returns; for now, there's Mexican food from Felipe's downstairs.
