. Mister Tiki's was a trendy, modern take on Polynesian Pop, but tried to hold true to some mid-century influences. The artwork of Bosko was featured heavily throughout the bar and restaurant.
Mister Tiki's opened in 2004, and closed in early 2010.

Bosko's work is amazing, but the "modern mix" is a bit disjointed...

Definitely targeted to the younger crowd. Traditional dark lounge it is not.

Not open for lunch so you have to wait till 5. The atmosphere is Tiki modern, wish other places could see how to do it right. Food is good and they make the best classic Mai Tai yet. They also have a fruit juice version for tourists but they know how to make great drinks. Music is so-so, apparently the manager does not like music, but the bar and wait staff are great and like being there. Nice mix of regulars and tourists. parking can be a pain, especially on Friday and Saturday nights, double when there is a baseball game downtown. Don't miss it if you are in the area.
