The Golden Tiki


Golden Tiki in Chinatown

The Golden Tiki is a popular tiki bar and lounge located in the heart of Chinatown, a vibrant neighborhood in downtown Las Vegas. The bar is known for its tropical decor, eclectic cocktails, and lively atmosphere.

Opened in 2015, the Golden Tiki was the brainchild of Las Vegas entrepreneur and nightlife impresario Branden Powers. Powers, who is also the founder of other successful Vegas hotspots such as Evil Pie, wanted to create a space that combined the exotic atmosphere of a traditional tiki bar with the edginess and energy of the Las Vegas party scene.

Golden Tiki decor:

The Golden Tiki’s interior is a feast for the eyes, with a mix of vintage and modern tiki-themed decor. The walls are covered in bamboo and thatch, while the bar is decorated with palm fronds and carved tiki statues. There are also vintage photographs and artifacts from mid-century tiki culture on display throughout the space.

The menu at the Golden Tiki is equally impressive, featuring a wide range of creative and delicious cocktails. Guests can choose from classic tiki drinks like mai tais and zombies, or try one of the bar’s unique creations like the “Penicillin Zombie” or the “Zombie Pirate”. The menu also features a variety of rum-based drinks, as well as beer and wine.

In addition to its impressive cocktail menu, the Golden Tiki also offers a small food menu. Guests can choose from a variety of appetizers and small plates, including poke bowls, shrimp cocktails, and pork belly bao buns.

The Golden Tiki is also known for its lively entertainment lineup. The bar features live music and DJs most nights of the week, with a mix of local and national acts. There are also regular burlesque shows and other special events, making the Golden Tiki a popular destination for both locals and tourists.

Perhaps one of the most unique features of the Golden Tiki is its “secret room”. Tucked away behind a bookcase, this hidden room is decorated like a pirate’s lair and features a private bar and seating area. Guests can reserve the secret room for private parties or special events.

Overall, the Golden Tiki is a must-visit destination for anyone looking for a fun and unique nightlife experience in Las Vegas. With its stunning decor, delicious cocktails, and lively entertainment, it’s easy to see why the bar has become such a beloved institution in the city’s nightlife scene.

    This is a must visit when in Vegas! This is located in Chinatown which is just a couple of blocks over from the strip. The Golden Tiki offers affordable high-quality alcoholic drinks alongside tasty appetizers in a funky Hawaiian-themed atmosphere. I’ve been here twice during their happy hours and have never been disappointed. I love that they offer an alcoholic dole whip for $8! What a bargain! The alcohol is also not skimped on, so you definitely get your money’s worth. There are also delicious appetizers. I like the Mermaid Lisa’s Hot Tots, the Sticky Fingers, and the Coconut Shrimp. You get a great portion during happy hour, which is really satisfying. The Sticky Fingers are fried chicken tenders glazed with a sweet and spicy sauce. It’s not very spicy, but you can taste a hint of spice when you eat it. They are pretty big shrimps and I really like the sweet and sour sauce that comes with them since it goes so well with the coconut flakes on the shrimp. Last but not least, the tater tots are normal potato tots, but the portion is HUGE! There is a creamy French onion dip served with it, but I prefer ketchup on the side. My favorite drink there is the alcoholic dole whip. With the pineapple vodka, it complements the tropical flavor of the dole whip. It wasn’t too overpowering, but I could taste the vodka. Also, I tried the Blue Lagoon. Rum-based drinks definitely pack a punch, and this was no exception. There was definitely a taste of alcohol in my mouth. As I said, their alcohol isn’t skimmed. Excellent customer service and wonderful decor! It was great that we sat at the bar because we got to interact with the bartenders. On the way out, they even gave us bottled water! It was also cool seeing the talking parrots and hula girls dancing. Just seeing the interesting decor was cool. This is a place I would recommend 100%. Next time I return to Vegas, I will definitely come back here!
