Updated November 23, 2023

This list is ever growing, ever-evolving and before you plan an evening or whole trip around visiting any of these places, be sure they are still there and open for business.

The COVID Pandemic has complicated this list even more. If you don’t see it here, perhaps look on our page of EXTINCT Tiki Bars in the Archives Section

Sometimes it is hard to distinguish a tropical bar from a tiki bar, or a cocktail lounge from a speakeasy.

For now, I just want to list all the noteworthy ones here until I can properly sort them out later. Just click on a link to see where they fall for now.
