The themed environment features a private hut, seating around a fire pit, a life-size deep sea diver, and a throne embraced by a giant octopus, the “Tikipus,” created by locals 3 Specialty Design Services.
On the menu, a roster of familiar Tiki drinks, all priced at $11, including a scorpion bowl, Mai Tais, the Blue Hawaiian, homemade sangria, the Rum Runner, and piña coladas.
