Humuhumu’s description

The Polynesian Room is located in the Waldorf Hotel. For much of the '90s and '00s, it was available only as a rental hall for private events. The Waldorf came under new ownership in late 2010, and the new owners have re-emphasized the Polynesian Pop angle. The Polynesian Room was renovated and restored, and a new era-appropriate analog sound system was installed. It reopened to the public in early November 2010.
It is made up of three rooms, the Polynesian Room, Tahitian Lounge, and Menehune Room. The Polynesian Room has a large collection of black velvet paintings by Edgar Leeteg, collected by one of the original owners of the hotel, Bob Mills.

How to find it

If there is any Tiki bar that should get honorable mention, it should be the Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver, BC. The place is essentially a dance club. I can assure you, electronic dance music will be pumping out of the speakersónot Martin Denny. When I visited the Waldorf, I didnít even have a drink. In fact, I donít know if they even serve any Tiki cocktails at all. But the place has history. It's been around since the 40's! And it looks pretty much the same.

This is my full write up...

I returned to the Waldorf a couple of weeks ago and they have significantly expanded their cocktail menu. Music was a bit on the loud side but it is a great space, no doubt about it.

Went to the Tiki Room at the Waldorf Hotel on Friday night and had a blast!
It is truly beautiful with a good menu, great Mai Tais and great analog sound system.
The renovation is fantastic and the service was friendly and efficient. Thanks Roxanne! I was really impressed with the vibe of the room and the crowd was friendly and funky. We danced up a storm! Highly recommended!
