Th Golden Tiki


This past weekend the wife and I took a weekend trip to Las Vegas, one stop that I knew we had to go was the Golden Tiki, someplace that I have wanted to go for a while.

As the Sign states, the Golden Tiki

We made reservations for noon and set out for adventure, for those that dont know, the Golden Tiki is an over 21 bar in Vegas that is a mix of Disneyland Tiki room meets traditionally Tiki bars of the past with an adult theme thrown in, perfect for this Ex skipper!

We arrived a little before noon, to get our temps checked before going inside. The person at the door met us and checked our temps and gave us the ground rules, no smoking inside, you can wonder around but must have a mask on, but if your at the table you could keep the mask off.

As you enter the doors, your in a small cave, the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song was playing with a small water fall with torches in the wall with another door. As soon as we opened the door we were transported to the Tiki bars of old!

They sat us at a high top along the wall, everything was Tiki, the wall paper, the decor, the music everything, it was amazing! They had a variety of drinks and we got to ordering our first set, I ordered the Painkiller and the wife ordered Three Dots and a Dash. I watched as the bartender made each drink and garnished the drinks as he was done with little umbrellas and fruit. We also ordered two appetizers, Shrimp Cocktail and Pork Meatballs in a sweet chilies sauce. All of it was amazing! Next up was a Mai Tai for myself and the wife got Navy Grog that was served with a flaming sugar cube.

Both drinks were amazing, and with that we ordered two more appetizers, Coconut Shrimp and Crab Rangoon. Once again everything was perfect. Our waitress Asia did an awesome job and the kitchen brought the food within minutes of placing the order.

We then ordered another round of drinks which we both went for the Piranha Punch which was absolutely amazing!

We spent almost our whole two hours there and spent with tip about $200.00 for everything (we tipped very well. My wife had to take a picture in the Giant Clam shell seat and i love all the shruken heads in the case behind it!

There were a few other pictures we tool, but I wanted to keep it PG, so be warned, this place is Disney meets R rated, there are paintings of nude women and pictures of nude or topless women on the tables. Also the door handles in the restroom are umm...Golden Tikis! LOL

This is now a must go to place for us and will happily return and make the 4 hour trip from Phoenix to Vegas just for this place alone. I highly recommend this place if your in Vegas, make sure to make a reservation though as it can be pretty busy.

Been a rough few weeks...


I am still alive and still here, just had some very personal stuff going on and the Hobby time came to a screeching halt. I am slowly starting to get back in the grove, so will have more updates soon.
