    Then you definitely missed out on The Tonga Hut in North Hollywood. Opened in 1958. We had our 55th anniversary last year.

    Was just at the Tiki Bar in Islamorada this past weekend!

    And let's not forget the Tiki Bar, yes it's called the Tiki Bar, in Islamorada, Florida. This great Keys bar brings me back to a spring break spent there in 1990. I hope it's still around!

    Don't forget Cana Rum Bar in downtown LA...not really a Tiki bar, but a great rum bar. I also like Player's Tiki Lounge on Pier 39 inside Player's.

    The Kon Tiki in Tucson - another one with good food and the original decor + bar. The fiber work around its wooden posts is really elaborate.

    One would think that James T. would have been consulted for this list...

    What about the Alibi in Portland, Oregon?

    Also forgot Hala Kahiki Lounge just outside Chicago. This place is packed every weekend.

    I am surprised you do not have one listed from Hawaii. When we were in Oahu, we found one of the few remaining authentic Tiki lounges in Hawaii, called La Mariana Restaurant and Bar. It was a fantastic experience!

    Jake, this story focuses on vintage tiki bars that have been around since the '50s and '60s (or in the case of Frankie's, that contain vintage tiki art). Check out our rum bars guide for some modern tiki spots (including Smuggler's Cove):
