The Bamboo Lounge is a bar in Santa Ana. It hides separated from the rest of the classic Benjies in SanTana, a kitschy tiki-style bar with bamboo-lined walls and vintage tropical tablecloths--along with Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Money Pit at the Disneyland Hotel, Don the Beachcomber and 320 Main on Tuesday nights, it's one of the last of the steam-powered tiki lounges in a region that invented the genre. The crowd is almost overwhelmingly old, mostly regulars from the deli next door, and the bar is subsequently calm, the type of place where Jeopardy! screens and the answers can be heard.
