December 2008 Rendez'vous Tiki Bar is back to it's original romantic lounge atmosphere. Even with that romantic atmosphere, it's a relaxing non-smoking place to go to just hang with friends. The drink menu has recently been updated, adding about 15 new drinks. And from time to time there is a variety of really good live entertainment.

We stopped in on New years eve on the recommendation of some friends. We had a great time, the staff was awesome and it was super relaxing. Perfect!

The Rendez'vous is my new favorite bar. We went there last night, Jan. 22, 2011, with some fellow Renaissance Faire pirate friends to escape the cold Wisconsin winter for a little piece of paradise, served up in funky glasses, garnished with pinapple, and with glow sticks as the stir sticks. I highly recommend the Rendez'vous for fantastic drinks, a super relaxing island vibe, and it's excellent decor that keeps you wanting to look in every little corner.

have tried this place twice, i like the decore but it seems to be a school hangout which would be fine if the bartenders could make a tiki drink. i would be able to put up with poison and the such being played on the radio but the drinks are terrible.

Everyone deserves a second chance so I decided to give this bar another try. Been here twice recently with friends and our drinks (mai tai, zombie) were made incorrectly on both visits. 80’s hairband music is the primary music of choice and the plastic tiki décor appears to be a afterthought. I questioned the bartender if their tiki drinks were offered in souvenir mugs. After a long puzzled look the bartender responded that this was the first time anyone had ever posed this question.

There are many nice pubs in Kenosha to meet friends for a drink and this bar is probably no exception, but as a “tiki bar”, Rendez'vous is a disappointment and is not deserving of its inflated 7.9 Critiki rating.

First impression was very tiki and hoped for the best. Drinks were pretty good took awhile to get. Staff was strange, they were out dated and out of their element it seemed, a strangely dressed fellow working with one rubber glove on touching fruit garnishments made me feel uneasy. Theme of the bar was decent but need more energetic staff that's more appealing to the tiki theme and not your local VFW.
There are better places out there to visit, I hoped for the best and had to reached for my hand sanitizer.
Don't plan on returning.

I love this bar because I didn't expect to find a tiki bar in Kenosha, and therefore it exceeded all expectations! I forget which bowl drink I had but it was tasty. Don't expect the most authentic recipes handed down through generations, but decent drinks. And I love that its a no smoking bar- Frankie's Tiki Room in Vegas is my all time favorite place but your clothes reek for days after leaving.
