Humuhumu’s description

The Shameful Tiki Room opened in Vancouver's Riley Park neighborhood in March 2013. Owner Rod Moore has dedicated himself to creating a classic Polynesian Pop escape, with a dimly-lit, windowless environment decked with bamboo and float lamps. The space is small, but there is a kitchen, and theme-appropriate live music acts are sometimes showcased.

We visited late afternoon without a reservation. Mr. Beach snuck us in too a great table where we enjoyed many of the drinks from the menu. Every drink was mixed with precision and was delicious. Also I joined the rum club and will return many more times to fill my passport! special shout out to Teylissa and Mr. Beach! Great job and excellent vibe!

We took an Alaskan cruise out of Vancouver for our honeymoon a couple years ago and spent three nights in BC beforehand so made sure to pop in to Shameful a couple times. Must say, I was very impressed. The first night we arrived for happy hour which had a small menu of drinks for $6 that aren't on the regular menu. Wife had the Shark Bait and I the Cobra's Fang. Neither of us really enjoyed them so we decided to quit being cheapskates and order off the regular menu. Glad we did because everything we had thereafter - '34 Zombie, Tika Puka Puka, and Fog Cutter - was really good. I like on the menu how they have barrels to indicate how strong the drinks are. We knew when we reached our limit for the night.
As for the decor, it's tastefully done. A healthy heaping of bamboo, thatch, tapa and matting lined the walls and overhead. They had some nice Bosko pieces, nicely carved statues, velvet wahine paintings, and other vintage ephemera scattered all over the place including a display case for some collectible mugs. There were peacock chairs, puffer fish, a TV playing old b/w movies, exotica album covers and old advertisements lining the walls. The music was right too. Great ambiance to help you forget the outside world. They really focused a lot of attention to detail and it shows.
I went back solo two nights later and sat at the bar to chat up the bartender, Chad, and began to explore the menu further. Had a Navy Grog, Jet Pilot and Day of the Dead. Chad was a trooper behind the bar, promptly taking care of thirsty patrons while squeezing massive amounts of limes, cooking up syrups, and getting it all done without seeming bogged down and keeping the atmosphere fun.
Left with a custom mug, some swizzles, matchbooks and lasting memories.

This is by far my favourite bar in Vancouver. Small enough to feel intimate, large enough not to be cramped, fantastic decor and music, -great- cocktails and bowls, and special effects! Not to mention the classic polynesian dance floorshows and burlesque shows, and special menus and decor for holidays. What really tips it over the edge in quality though, is the -excellent- service. Every server here is knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic. Great, great tiki bar!
