Humuhumu’s description

The Golden Tiki opened in Las Vegas' Chinatown on July 24, 2015. The man behind The Golden Tiki, Branden Powers, has been part of the nightclub scene in Las Vegas for some time now (he was Creative Director at the Hard Rock Hotel), but is himself a longtime lover of Tiki, having spent some of his youth DJing Exotica tunes at the Islands Restaurant

The Golden Tiki is in a large space, 4,000 square feet, and split into four different zones. The interior design and build out were done by Danny "Tiki Diablo" Gallardo. The bar has a thatched roof, and is topped by an animatronic talking tiki head, named Goldy, created by Erik "Irk" Hedman. A loveseat-sized artificial giant clam is popular for photos.
A flaming pu-pu platter is available on Friday and Saturday nights.

This is, hands down, the most atmospheric tiki bar I've ever visited. Sure, if you're being technical, it has more of a Caribbean or pirate/jungle explorer vibe going than pure tiki, but it's very cool! The drink menu, though somewhat limited, is fine and the drinks are great. I can't recommend this place highly enough. It's definitely worth a visit if you are up for leaving the Las Vegas strip and I much prefer the vibe here to that at Frankie's (which can also be fun, but feels more like a dive bar than Golden Tiki does).

Very cool tiki bar with a more modern take that is certainly more pirate in nature. Drinks were good and I’d like to go back. But... we had a server who was condescending and rude. Every interaction left me feeling sour. If I return, and happen to get her, I’d tell them I want a different server. Impacted my enjoyment.

Our last visit was too early, i think, so the bar was nearly empty. We have to join again definitely!!
