Humuhumu’s description:
H魌el-Motel Coconut has been owned by the Landry family since it opened in 1958, and became Polynesian-themed in 1963 after the owners went on an inspirational honeymoon in Tahiti. In addition to the hotel, there are two lounges: the Coconut Bar and in 2015 a second lounge was added, Volcano. Coconut Bar has more traditional and immersive decor, while Volcano is more lightly themed but bathed in all-red light. However, the Coconut Bar has incongruous modern music, while Volcano has the more relaxing lounge sounds one wants in a tiki bar.

A wonderfull vintage tiki bar. Owned by the same family over 40 years. Mugs and drinks are nice. Decor and furniture are really vintage. I heard that the owners travelled a lot to Hawai and Polynesia to bring back decorative items and spirit. Vahin's Paintings on the walls are awesome! But I have to admit that the music sucks. Music is very mainstream.
And this bar is combined to a motel also called Coconut. So if you drunk too much cocktails, you can take a rest. It's not really expensive, clean but a little bit old.

I got there recently and was astonished by the decor. The place is vintage and looks awesome. Probably the nicest tiki joint in Eastern Canada. Big tiki statues, a wide array of lamps, a small bridge, vahin's paintings, great looking masks and carvings... This bar has it all. Inappropriate music hurts the mood, though.

The cocktails I had didn't really impress me. The Aku Aku Coconut, the house's speciality, is an okay coconut drink. The Zombie was not really a Zombie and tasted funny. But at least, the people behind the bar seems to care about the drinks they're making.

Tiki cocktails are served in tiki mugs and bowls available for purchase.

Great original decor! I spent at least an hour just walking around looking at all the vintage items both in the bar and the lobby but also around the grounds. Drinks were ok, mugs are pretty run of the mill. Music was pop unfortunately. It's a shame this place hasn't been able to stay completely true to it's Tiki heritage but since it is a little out of the way I'm sure they have made some compromises. Worth a visit for the decor alone. I'm glad they have stayed in business as long as they have. I stayed in the motel which is clean but a little dated. It will still be a regular stop for me when I travel to the east coast.

A new feature at the Coconut Bar: the new lounge section called The Volcano. It's a smaller bar next to the Coconut Bar (in the same building) with also very nice furnitures and decorations. The red lightnings is very warming. The drinks menu is exactly the same than the Coconut Bar but the music is more pleasant in this bar. Cuban music, world music or Gold rock.

The Coconut Bar still rocks by its astonishing decor. I'm going there years after years and never get bored. Such a nice tiki bar!! But... the music... still sucks. Hasn't change over the years.
If you're a Rihanna, Justin Bieber or Alan Thick fan #1, you'll be very happy.
