5 spots in Las Vegas to get your tiki fix

Updated April 22, 2018 - 10:08 am

Frankie’s Tiki Room

If you’re looking for a tiki drink to beat all tiki drinks, your first stop should be Frankie’s. Double Down owner P Moss’ Tiki Room has several cocktails created by its creative mixologists, such as the Malekula, a refreshing mix of Cruzan coconut rum, Tuaca, Midori melon liqueur, pineapple and orange juices and 7UP. Or you can stick with the old familiar mai tai.

The Golden Tiki

The Golden Tiki may not be the paradise of original tiki drinks that Frankie’s is, but it’s got a heck of a backstory, and dozens of artifacts — real and imagined — to back it up. Stop in for a Painkiller, or take your friends and indulge in a Zombie Punch Bowl.

Fireside Lounge

Instead of a bamboo-and-shrunken-heads motif, the Fireside Lounge at the Peppermill has a fab ’70s retro feel, complete with sunken seating area centered by a small pool with flames shooting out of the middle. In terms of tiki drinks, there’s a signature 64-ounce Scorpion, Blue Hawaiian, mai tai and more.

Peppermill, 2985 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 702-735-4177, peppermilllasvegas.com

Margaritaville

With palms and parrots and everything else, this is a tiki-terrific spot to waste away while you’re looking for that lost shaker of salt. Sip a Planter’s Punch or a Banana Breeze — or maybe one of the nine margaritas — while you listen to music and think about changing your latitude.

Rhumbar

Rhumbar’s cool Caribbean vibe makes it just the place to indulge in those icy Caribbean drinks, including the 1944 Mai Tai, said to follow Trader Vic Bergeron’s original recipe. Don the Beachcomber’s Zombie is on the menu as well, in addition to standards such as the pina colada and newbies such as the Rhumbar Mojito.
