Humuhumu’s description

Tiki Taky opened as Taky Tiki in 2006; the name order was switched when the place underwent a dramatic upgrade in tiki decor in 2009.

I've lived through at least two Tiki revivals now. Hell, when I worked in Burlington, Vermont, I tried to get my editors to let me move my desk to the one that opened in a basement space just a block or two away. I think they saw the thatch on the wall, though, and realized I'd never get anything done ever again much less by the five p.m. deadline. Urban tiki revivals can be the toughest to judge. I wanted to love Aku Aku in Oslo but it's tiki butt couldn't cash the tiki check it's decor had written. On the flip side, Otto's in NYC has minimal curb appeal but once you're inside and ensconced in a booth and have a Ruby jewels or two in you, the fact that the DJ is running through your New Wave favs instead of Don Ho is of no consequence. Tiki Taky gets the balance pretty much perfect. The decor is outstanding for a country with little to no seafaring roots. The music, while not tropical, was appropriate to the mood and time period. Then again, I'm a sucker for Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" under any circumstances. I was a little worried when I saw fellow patrons sit down and order beer first. Then again, it's Prague where people wash down breakfast pastries with beer. Their second and third rounds were from the tiki menu. Based on my other interactions at restaurants, the waitress was downright perky and happy to keep bringing drinks. Now, some tiki essentials are hard to source in Europe, I get it. Maraschino cherries are smaller, some of the coconut flavoring is a little off. But Tiki Taky not only had the plot, it had the finale and the sequel. Plus it's in a fairly working class neighborhood and away from the straight up tourist crap other parts of the city suffer from. I know it's gauche and I know I'm twenty years too late, but I'd move to Prague and deal with the surly subway workers and chintzy "old cars" rattling people around the old town square just to call Tiki Taky my home bar.

I have NO idea what all the fuss is about this place. Maybe it's just that it's pretty much one of the only tiki bars in Eastern Europe.

Decor was ok. They had a wide variety of drinks on the menu, but of the 4 we ordered, none were noteworthy.

Staff was great, but if the drinks aren't up to par then I can't say it's worth going too. Maybe I'm just spoiled being an Angeleno...

We were there a few years ago. Drinks were good but the staff was great. We were taking our picture while holding up a copy of Tiki Magazine. They got really excited, had never seen it before. They gave us a drink and we left the them the magazine.
