New-style tiki-lounges — a trend in global bar culture
New York is never short of happening bars, and this time it’s all about Tiki fun in the Big Apple. While there was hardly an ‘Aloha!’ to be heard about a year ago, Mai Tais can now be sipped and savoured at Waikiki Wally’s
, Otto’s Shrunken Head
, and the Zombie Hut, to name just a few (source: The New York Times).
Traditional Tiki bars and restaurants have been a long-time success in California and some parts of Europe (including the notorious world-wide Trader Vic’s chain), but now expect new-style tiki-lounges to do well from Tokyo to Budapest.
Check out the sites below to get inspired, then buy parasols, groovy Hawaiian shirts and coconuts in bulk, and cash in on yet another trend in global bar culture.
